The Tate Modern is one of London's best and most-loved art galleries. Located in an old power station on the south bank of the Thames, the huge turbine hall makes an imposing entrance and wonderful art space for innovative and playful artworks - kids especially love it. The other gallery spaces show a range of the world's most significant modern art in changing exhibitions around various themes.

Tate Modern has an excellent shop and its cafe, overlooking the Thames River and St Paul's Cathedral, is a great place to rest your feet and mind with one of the best views in London. The Tate Modern is one of four museums: Tate Britain (just down the river), Tate St Ives (Cornwall) and Tate Liverpool. Tate Modern and Tate Britain are connected by riverboat so it's easy to move from the modern art at the Tate Modern to the British art of the Tate Britain.

Practical Info

Located on the banks of the river Thames, opposite St Paul's, with the pedestrian Millennium Bridge leading to it and its high brown brick chimney, it's easy to find the Tate Modern. Wander along South Bank from Waterloo station or the closest tube station at Southwark. Blackfriars Station is just across the river, and London Bridge Station is also close.
