Tate Britain is a wonderful collection of art that you actually want to experience and enjoy. We joined and as members have access to lovely cafes and special experiences.

This is an impressively-thought-through and deeply informative journey ['All Too Human' exhibition], both informative and immersive - with real enjoyment in encountering surprising interactions and extraordinary intimacies in the artists' work with their subjects. Brilliantly created, and finally some great contemporary artists who happen to...More

It is excellent that facilities like this are free to visit although a £5 donation is requested. Not being a massive fan of many British artists I suspected maintaining my interest might be a challenge. I was looking forward to seeing the paintings from the...More

Love the fact that all London’s galleries are free but they do draw the crowds. Tate Britain is a bit off the beaten track and feels less crowded. Great British art from across the centuries and a cool atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

What a treasure and resource Tate Britain is. The two experiences "All Too Human" and 'Aftermath" were overwhelming in their different ways. There are so many responses to art and being able to see and even participate, in the different media, is politically and culturally...More

I feel very lucky to get a chance to show my daughter amazing art for 'free'. (Tate do ask for donation) The gallery is a very easy, level walk from Pimlico tube station (On the Victoria line). We went in through the side entrance where...More

The museum is a Tate, so it has to be good where the collections are concerned. However, I am there for David Hockney's A Bigger Splash and not much else.

Just back from London. Took an elderly artist cousin to see the Turners, but found the "new" layout hard to comprehend. There are fabulous pictures here, so it's well worth a visit, but some expected old friends (hadn't been there for over 20 years) were...More

Pimlico
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
