Tuesday 25 October - Dulwich Picture Gallery and Jersey Boys

Pictures will be posted later.

We got up late and went down the Euston Road to have a full English breakfast at a pub, along with a pint of Fuller's London Pride.  A ride on the top deck of a bus to Victoria provided plenty of interest but it was pretty slow.  At Victoria we took an Orpington train to West Dulwich to visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery which is celebrating its 200th anniversary.  It is a small gallery and some of the pictures are a little difficult to see as they are high up and catch the reflections.  There is an exhibit of the Group of Seven which was pretty good.  Tom Thompspn's "The Jack Pine" was there but most of the pictures and sketches were new to us.

Coming back to town we just missed a train and the next one was cancelled.  It started to rain and the rain came into the shelter.

The Underground was a nightmare.

We went to the evening performance of "Jersey Boys" about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  The sang a lot of well known songs and the whole was well performed and good fun.  Getting back, the Underground was almost as full as during rush hour.
