We just saw the exhibit of fashion in the 1930s -- the short film shown before the exhibit itself was fun and provided useful commentary. The clothing was gorgeous -- and the display was executed imaginatively. Best of all, the narrative about the clothes provided...More

The current exhibition, Night and Day 1930s fashion and photographs, is excellent. Though the sight of all those elegant clothes did make me feel, in my comfortable clothes and flat shoes, the opposite of chic! You begin with a selection of Pathe news clips to...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
