The building is huge and massive, you can definitely see it from across the Thames river. The collection is very nice, but the thing that amaze me are the building interior and exterior design. The view when you are approaching and leaving the museum via...More

The Tate Modern is an astonishing adaptive reuse of a power plant, as everyone knows, and be sure to go to the top of the stack for the free view of the London skyline. The building is big, boxy and awkward and needs MUCH better...More

If what we saw at the Tate can be considered art, mankind is in a much rougher and precarious state than we previously thought. There is no way that my spirits can be lifted or my creativity excited by the sight of stacked trash. This...More

I'm a big fan of the Tate Modern, particularly the special exhibitions which are often thought provoking. But my trip this time was marred by several large and noisy school parties. I know it's not for the Tate to manage these parties but it really...More

We were quite excited to go see this museum. The free admission always makes you feel like you have the freedom to take as much or little time you need. The exhibits were interesting but not life changing. The viewing deck was quite fun. Worth...More

Had been to Tate decades ago. So was very surprised with the new location and the museum. I would certainly recommend it as a must to go place

Southwark
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
