Tate Modern no longer has the panache that it had when it first opened. It is now a hodgepodge of various collections set around in a confusing manner and interspersed with galleries that require a payment. The passageways between each room on every floor are...More

I am not crazy about the permanent collection of the Tate but this exhibit of Bonnard is a must. So many paintings, well organized and displayed and well written explanations. It was a highlight of this trip to London.

Great place, very airy. Stacked with art (some very likeable, some an acquired taste). If you go you must go to the top to see the views, it is particularly good at night!

Tate modern is one of the largest museums of contemporary art. It's also one of unique museums accessible to all ages, a place where even nascent art lovers can have an exhilarating experience. The museum is very abstract and quite different to pretentious museums of...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
