Pimlico streets are lined with impressive, white stucco houses, and this is predominantly a residential area. Despite its close proximity to central London and grand architecture, it was, until quite recently, had a high number of cheap hotels and hostels.
However, the ever-increasing boom in the London property market has played its part, and now Pimlico is a fairly desirable area, quite out of the reach of most peoples’ budget. Head to the Warwick Way and Churton Street area, next to Vauxhall Bridge Road, for the best of Pimlico’s shops and restaurants.
Pimlico is most famous for being the home of the Tate Britain. The gallery only exhibits British art (although this rule is quite often broken). The gallery has works by William Blake and the Hogarths. More recent artists include David Hockney, Francis Bacon and the feminist artist Tracy Emin. The Tate is a fantastic building and if you enjoy art you will have a fantastic day out roaming around checking out all the different artists works.
