This gallery covers a wide range of subjects about our culture and society though the form of sculptures, bold designs and abstract art. My personal favourite is ‘monument for the living’. It’s symbolic of life and death, more of a symbol of death since the...More

We have been to London a few times and walked past Tate Modern on a number of occasions without going inside, until we could resist no longer and "took the plunge", so to speak this time around. We were so glad we did! This must...More

Lots of art. Tons of art. All different types of art. The Tate is a very hip and cool place. The building is very odd and quite ugly from outside.

I was fortunate enough to watch the instillation of Ice Watch this morning outside of the Tate. Impressive orchestration and competent completion. Go see it now. Global warming effects all of us.

Never been to the Tate before. Its enormous! I was very tired after walking around. We took a seat upstairs overlooking the activities taking place downstairs and fell asleep. We both felt very relaxed napping in a public place between the exhibition areas with lots...More

We specifically went to enjoy the Annie Albers exhibition which was a delight with a such a varied array of displays but the general exhibition was also good fun. We stayed so long we didn’t have time to visit the shop before it closed, they...More

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.

I personally wouldn’t come to London with a 3 year old, end of!! And Tate Modern definitely has no appeal for such children in my opinion. (Nor adults!!!!) Wait until the child is a teenager!
