Carsten Holler Slides at Tate Modern
This morning I was lucky enough to be able to go on the Carsten Holler slides (think 5 giant helter skelters) at Tate Modern art gallery. I went on the tallest one, from level 5, and it was really enjoyable. The best time to go is at ten, when it opens; I got my ride within about 5 minutes, but at lunchtime the queues are horrendous. It was also good to see a really broad cross section of people enjoying themselves. One of the quintessential London experiences for 2006.
