    Bit, pompous, I guess it's the company they keep! Great exhibition on abstract expressionism. Wonderful to see so many significant works in a suitably big space. Interesting audio commentary.

    If you are a Charles Darwin fan then this is an important place. In 1858 Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace presented a joint paper on evolution by natural selection in the Reynolds Room.
