Shakespeare, Pissarro & Monet!

A great day today!  We absolutely loved our tour of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. We reckon our guide was a retired actor & he made the history interesting & fun. One of the tit-bits which fascinated us was the number of our sayings which began life in his plays as you can see in the chart attached.

Then it was off to The National Gallery where we headed for the Impressionists which are our favourites. Even though a couple of the relevant rooms were closed for refurbishment, we saw plenty of Monet & Pissarro. A couple of our favourites are here for you to share.

We had a good British lunch at the Sherlock Holmes Pub near the gallery: fish, chips, mushy peas & a pint!  It was a beautiful day & we sat out in the sun. What could be better?

No senior moments today thankfully!

  1. Love those paintings too. We saw the theatre from the outside but it was closed when we were there. It’s on our bucket list for next time along with the National Gallery. We had a lovely day at Hampton Court is you haven’t been there and the gardens and the antique grapevine are worth seeing.
