I return to the Tate Modern multiple times in a year, which shows how interesting the exhibitions are and can be viewed multiple times. Will be looking forward to more regular 2021 visits.

I am not a fan of the modern art, but in Tate there is something for everyone. You just need the strenght to go, as the place is quite big. I recomend the view over London from the observation deck, which is on the top of the Blavatnik Building - it is amazing and free

We recently went to have a coffee in LVL 3 at Tate Modern. having visited years ago and having nice memories of it. Throughout the evening, the bald italian member of stuff who was attending our table kept engaging with my male partner but not with myself-a woman. Most notably, he came to ask "how is your coffee, Sir?"but didnt ask me how was mine, and asked "did you want another drink, Sir" without offering me one. And when collecting the empty cups, he said "have you finished, Sir?" again plainly ignoring me. I had enough by that time, so I snapped that I was finished too. Another member of staff hurriedly brought us our bill. We shan't be visiting again, and I've made sure to share the experience with anyone who might think this is a pleasant place to go to a art museum. It's not- the coffee is average, and that member of staff blatantly sexist

I love museums and try to see as many exhibitions as possible around the world. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has sadly limited this but it was nice to finally come back. I went to see the Zanele Muholi exhibition which was brilliant. Coming from a partial South African background, it was very touching. Muholi focusses on South Africa’s black lesbian, gay, trans, queer and intersex communities. The photographs were very personal and deep. Well laid out, clear and very interesting. There are 9 rooms. It took me just over an hour. Some of the exhibitions are free but you need to pay for the special exhibitions like this. Easy booking system via their website. I may be wrong so check but you need to book online for any visit as staff appeared to only be letting people in with tickets. This would enable them to manage the social distancing. Masks must be worn throughout. Clean and social distancing was well managed but parts of the exhibition were crowded. There is only so much we can do and staff were trying their best. They should probably seal off some of the seats as well. Lovely shop at the end but as per most museums, nice to browse but expensive. The building is huge and the setting along the river is lovely. I am not sure if the coffee shop or any eateries inside are open but there were many places nearby if your looking for a bite to eat. There are a few underground stations within walking distance. I usually go to Southwark which is about a 10 minute walk. It is always windy if you come along the river route so dress accordingly. The Tate Modern used to open late on some evenings but this has been reduced with the pandemic so check before you go.

I visited during the last week of October which meant that due to Covid I had to book my ticket in advance. The social distancing and one-way system was very well managed. In fact due to social distancing it meant you could spend a lot of time around exhibits without fighting crowds. I personally love modern art so I was in my element. Just being in the building is an experience.
