Tate Modern

Known to be one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art in the world, the Tate Modern was officially open by Her Majesty the Queen on the 11th May 2000. Set in the atmospheric Bankside Power Station – a feat of modern architecture in itself – the Tate offers visitors a unique cultural experience.

Welcoming over five million visitors in its first year, the Tate has quickly become one of the city’s most iconic tourist attractions. The world-renowned modern art gallery includes a free-to-view main collection that covers everything from Media Networks to Living Cities. In addition to the main collection, the gallery also runs temporary exhibits, insightful talks and special events.

A focal part of the Tate Group, the gallery works in accompaniment with Pimlico’s Tate Britain, which houses displays of historical and contemporary British art. Complementing one another, the two galleries form a strong part of London’s cultural makeup.
