What shall we do today?

In the UK, today is Boxing Day which is a public holiday. The period between Christmas and New Year is also very often an extended holiday period for a number of people. "He who must not be bored while I sketch" and I were just trying to decided what we're doing today and later in the week.

One of the things we will be doing later this week is going to see the Holbein exhibition at Tate Britain - but unfortunately not today as it doesn't reopen until tomorrow after their Christmas break

For those of you would rather see art than hit the winter sales, here's a list of some of the exhibitions in London which can be visited before New Year's Day.
In the meantime, we've decided we're going to Blackheath today to walk in Greenwich Park and to look at the view of London from the Old Royal Observatory - which is of course home to Greenwich Mean Time (or GMT) being located at the Prime Meridian - (i.e. zero degrees) - inbetween the western and eastern hemispheres.
