I was very impressed by what they had on display in the areas that did not requite admission fees. Big names at that.

I was disappointed with the Tate Modern. If you compare it to the National Gallery or the Portrait Museum there are not very many quality pieces of art given the massive two buildings. I did appreciate the Munch, Picasso, Matisse, and Dali works, but there...More

Love it! While there are some of those art pieces that are probably done by a 3rd grader, many the other pieces are simply outstanding. My advice is to skip those you have no interest in and dive into those that catches your eye.

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

The Tate is a free museum, however, the Picasso display was worth the money. To my knowledge, there were no discounts.
