bank holiday activities

i googled for ‘bank holiday activities‘ and the second suggestion was back to funkypancake. what are the chances of that ?
anyway, jane and i used our home-alone bank holiday saturday to go up to london to visit the photography exhibition at Tate Britain then go on a guided tour of the houses of parliament.
i go in to the houses of parliament for meetings quite regularly but it was excellent to do the tourist thing and understand some of the history of the place. it was also very cool to be able to stand (we weren’t allowed to sit) in both the house of lords and house of commons in amongst the famous seats.
probably not one for little kids, but if you’re having a grown up day out in london, definitely worth an hour of your time.
