Saw this exhibition yesterday: Sunday 4/12. So well put together! A great Brtish artist honoured in the awe-inspiring Tate Britain. Buy the book that accompanies the exhibition to help continue this memorable experience. Parking on a Sunday near this gallery is delightfully easy. An unforgettable exhibition that reverently displays the life and journey of a great artist in a most... More

This was my first visit to the Tate Britain. The JMW Turner collection has been on my to do list for a while and didn't disappoint. But there is so much more at the Tate - Millais, Blake, Rossetti, Constable, the list goes on. Spent a whole morning there, was fascinating. I was glad to see lots of school parties... More

We had a bracing walk along the Thames and reached the Tate with great expectations as we hadn't been since school trips (many years ago) Our only regret was not giving ourselves enough time to savour everything that is on offer. The Turners were amazing!

Loved the collection, permanent exhibition is free. Some paid for exhibitions as well. Went on Sunday from 3-6, which was enough time for us to see the permanent exposition. Not too busy during this time.

Great exhibition of Nash's work here - spent a good amount of time looking at the huge range and comparing the styles. Enjoyed some of the rest of the galleries too, but Nash the highlight on this visit.

Brilliant and timely review of Nash's work. From WW1 horror paintings through to his surrealist work via his WW2 broken aeroplanes. My family and I are quite familiar with Nash's work which we have seen at IWM before but the surrealist stuff was new and fresh to us. Worth a look.

We really enjoyed the BP History of British Art rooms - it was very educational and interesting. Each room covers a particular period of history - there is so much to see we only visited the first half. Nice book shop. Great that it is free. Nice cafe in the basement. Good parking just outside the art gallery if you... More

If you like impressionists this is a must see exhibition. The range and variety of his work is impressively displayed.

Staying in Pimlico

Neighbourhood Profile
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
