London plans: need help sorting

Jump to last reply

Before realizing that there are several exhibits I want to see while in London, I had planned on visiting three places we had never been before:

1. Guidlhall Art Gallery/museum
2. British Museum
3. Kenwood House and poke around Hampstead

With 4 nights in London, this seemed really easy.

But while researching my husband and I have found these exhibits and we are torn on our itinerary. I have two requests: If you've visited any of these exhibits can you review your impressions please, and also I could use some help organizing the days and nights. We've already cut our plan to see a dance performance because we'll be too busy.

Vogue 100 at the National Portrait Gallery

Strange and Familiar: Britain as revealed by international photographers at Barbican Gallery

Paul Strand at the V&A

Pre-Raphealites on Paper at Leighton House

Photo London (major photo fair) at Somerset House

*Painting with Light
Art and Photography from the Pre-Raphaelites to the modern age
Tate Britain:

We love Pre-Raphealites, and my husband is a photo journalist, thus our foci.
I should probably add that I don't like the Barbican. I find it cold and soulless, and could drop that although the exhibit sounds very interesting.
Also, we will be coming to London from the Peak District where we'll see Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, as well as the grounds of Lyme House, so maybe Kenwood is one great house too many?
This will be mid-May, Monday through Thursday.
