I like to think that art is about expression, creativity and talent and to go and look at things that I couldn’t do myself then marvel and the ability or insight of another person. There is only a limited amount of this in the gallery....More

This was my first visit to Tate Modern. The building is absolutely amazing and a really good example of brutalist architecture. The art was a little out of my league but just being in such an imposing building was great. The highlight for me was...More

Look, you're either into this or you aren't, there's no in-between. It's in a striking facility on the south bank of the THames, and of course it's free. I go to art galleries everywhere we go, loving pre-modern art, what some would call, or deride,...More

Look I love the fact in the UK you don't have to agree with someone's point of view but you can rigorously argue for their freedom to express it!...Bit like the Tate really, 90% of it isn't art but there is a space for them...More

Huge building. Very poor art collection. The building is more interesting than what it contains. The books at the library worth more than the exhibitions.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

The Tate is a free museum, however, the Picasso display was worth the money. To my knowledge, there were no discounts.
