Explore an outstanding collection of contemporary art at the Tate Modern, one of London’s most famous museums. Housed in the revamped Bankside Power Station on the River Thames, Tate Modern uses its industrial space to display some of the world’s most innovative works.
Visit the striking Turbine Hall to check out the latest large-scale art installation, before wandering through the permanent collections showcasing works from Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. Don’t miss the iconic “Weeping Woman” by Picasso or Monet’s “Water Lilies”.
Guided tours are scheduled at various times throughout the day, while audio guides are available for those looking to explore at their own pace. The imposing building is made of four million bricks and features a 99-metre-high tower. Don’t leave without soaking up the view of London from the glass-walled viewing platform or enjoying a drink at the panoramic bar and restaurant.
The Tate Modern is located in Bankside opposite Millennium Bridge. It’s 10 minutes’ walk from the Southwark and Blackfriars tube stations. You can also take the ferry along the Thames between Tate Britain, the London Eye and Tate Modern.
