The Tate gallery - absolutely astounding collection of Turners and some of the most famous works of other artists - they had Picasso's "Nude Descending Staircase" hung at the landing of a main staircase.

Any of the museums listed could use up your whole trip. Just a slow walk through the models at the Maritime Museum takes hours. Just a decent visit to the highlights of London would take months of full time touring - it's an amazing city.

Then you can start on the rest of the country.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
