This magnificent route consists of three parts — the Pimlico tour, the Tate Britain gallery tour and the Belgravia area.
On Pimlico, starting from the metro station, we will go to see the amazing ventilation statue by Eduardo Paolosi, learn about the life of the founder of lawn tennis, meet the real «shelter» of the cabman and understand why it is needed. And for fans of Princess Diana — here is the kindergarten where she worked and her favorite square! Very close lived a Nobel laureate who explained the structure of DNA and the scandalous family of Lord Grosvenor, the first person killed under a train and at the same time a grandiose politician. There were also mysterious poisonings, military uniforms were sewn, ships were built, newspapers were published, the mysterious King rested in the pub, gin was driven, the president of Kenya lived next to artists and the order of Malta. Stables and the oldest social housing in the city, with delicious beer and flavorful scones, are also waiting for us.
Tate Britain is a gallery of national significance of British art from 1500 to the present day. The Tate Britain gallery houses a large collection of United Kingdom art from Tudor times, and it is known for its Turner Collection (the largest in the world). Other artists include David Hockney, Peter Blake and Francis Bacon. In addition to its permanent collection, Tate Britain organizes retrospectives of contemporary artists from the UK and major temporary exhibitions of British art.
Then a tour of Belgravia. Where Vivien Leigh lived and where the Queen’s Hatter Philip Tracy works. We are waiting for delicious chocolate, famous perfumes, delicious bread, chic locations for walking and photos. The story of the first Marquis of Westminster, general don Hoz Martin, and Prince Henry Novigator, who will draw our attention to the same square, while Christopher Columbus and Simon Bolivar will explain what they have to do with London.
