So this is what we saw on our wanderings..
This was taken in Westminster, sums up London in a strange kind of way.
This is the Royal Academy of Arts; we passed it when we were trying to find Oxford Street. This very large pregnant woman, with peeled back skin (The Virgin Mother by Damien Hirst) towers over the courtyard, it is part of this year's Summer Exhibition, along with some kind of red wooden structure that looked a bit like the foundations for something.
This is inside the Queen's Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue: the stage.
And the ceiling..
