I particularly liked this museum because it is smaller than the other museums and overlooks the Thames. It is free, unless you want to go to any of the special exhibitions. There are many galleries to see and there is an excellent array of British...More

I must admit that I was a bit disappointed by the the Tate Britain. The building's interior lacks the warmth of the V & A or the beauty of the National Gallery. The collections of English art are very good, but some of the works...More

I had a free afternoon before meeting friends in the evening and walked along to Tate Britain. I spent 3 hours and could have been longer. Peaceful and calm and some of Britain’s finest art work.

Oh wow - what an absolute joy this exhibition is. 7 galleries of prime offerings from this supremely talented artist. Spell-binding, breath taking - l run out of superlatives. If you have the opportunity to visit, go for it - you won't be disappointed.

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle
architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art
lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class
Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art
from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and
