Tate Britain is an institution. Even if you just have 15 minutes spare, that's 15 minutes you could spend admiring the Henry Moore collection, thumbing through prints in the Art Shop, or walking through a history of British Art. The cafe is also quite nice,...More

I payed to visit the Queer British art exhibit and it was completely worth it. A great and rich collection that is categorised in how they tell the story of Queer history. Very lovely touch of visitor commentary chosen to accompany certain exhibits.

We visited on Sunday morning at 11. The crowd was manageably small, and we could easily get close to all the exhibits. The Tate Britain selection ranges from 0 to 500 years old, and we found plenty to like here.

I love art! This place is magical. Well worth the donation fee. The pieces are phenomenal. Perfect combination of contemporary and abstract.

this is worth checking out for exhibitions. There is a nice pub just down the road for a lazy Sunday brunch before hand and the collection is okay, but best to check exhitbitions and go when something you want to see is on

This is such a great museum but because of its size, it can be overwhelming. I find that it's a good idea to choose a gallery or section. A couple of years ago, I came twice; first I joined a free guided tour on JMW...More

In our opinion this museum is a much friendlier venue for modern and contemporary art appreciation than the vast factory that is the other Tate (Britain). Here in Millbank there are lesser crowds and it is easier to go around the bright and airy galleries....More

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
