Visited with couple of friends. Great place for art. We couldn’t afford to pay for any extra exhibitions however all the free stuff u could see were amazing. Don’t forget to see London from the top of Tate building.

Had a free afternoon and decided to explore the Tate. What a lovely surprise. A few strange pieces but that's to be expected. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

Very good exhibition but I left wanting more. I would welcome a UK theme in the near future. Tate Modern is a large building that seem to lack exhibits to fill the space. A bit of a Ikea to exit.

The Tate Modern is in a great central location and is free, so you can just pop in for a short time or spend all day. We enjoyed playing on the Superflex swings installation! There are free 30-45 min guided tours of all the galleries...More

Me and my friend came here for the Rachel Whitehead exhibition yesterday, which mainly consisted of objects made out of concrete, which we liked very much, not too keen of some of the other exhibitions there, but looking forward to our next visit soon.

Brilliant trip to the tate for the swings in the turbine Hall. Like us more adults sat swinging on triple seats with the biggest smiles. This made me smile from the moment we got there

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
