This is my second favorite museum in London (second to the V&A). It is free and the permanent collection is fabulous. The Rothko "Seagram's Building Four Seasons" murals (decommissioned) alone are worth the visit, but then there's also the Dali "Lobster telephone" among tons of...More

A must do The exhibition was very diverse and displayed impressing work of art. Video Art was also part of the tour and the lights and sounds effects enabled the experience to be unique.

Hopefully you are better at reading a map. The gallery is made up of two buildings which you need to view separately. You have to be on certain floors to move from building to building. It was not clear what exhibits were in which building....More

As a self-confessed Philistine I struggled to agreed with my companions who insisted that it's really great to express healthy scepticism and derision. "Artists love it when their work provokes scorn". However they were lost for words when I propped my walking stick against a...More

This is one place we'd walked past many a time so with time to kill we ventured in, we were surprised it has such a huge amount of space so much of it unused. The galleries are nicely laid out and the ones we viewed...More

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!

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.
