My husband and I returned to the Tate Britain recently. The museum showcases British art from 1500 to the present. Some of the famous artists displayed are Millais, Hockney, Waterhouse, Sargent, Constable, Hogarth, Rossetti, and Blake. The Turner Collection is extensive. We were fortunate to...More

Leisurely stroll through the galleries and lunch in the cafe. Cafe a little pricey for what was on offer for lunch. Large range of artistic pieces. Not too easy to navigate a route through the exhibits

We are regular visitors to London but don's seem to go the Tate so much - possibly because it is slightly out of the way. Anyway, the exhibition (All Too Human) we went for was interesting and the app guided tour of the highlights complemented...More

We visited Tate Britain recently to see the "Impressionists in London" and the "All too human" special exhibitions (these are paid entry exhibitions). Both were wonderfully displayed with informative supporting panels plus as a bonus the gift shop had a 50% sale for the "Impressionist"...More

Best way to get there is a Victoria line underground to Pimlico and then try and follow the lamp post signs. Another wonderful free London gallery to which you should leave a generous donation. Its open 10-6, M - Sun and seldom gets hugely busy....More

Visited the Tate Britain to look at Turner paintings. They have over 300 paintings of which about 75 are exhibited at any given time. This was an extensive selection, well worth the visit.

Good day out to see some British art. Lots of free exhibitions to look at, along with plenty of paid activities going on. Building itself is of architectural importance and worth seeing alone. Not the most exciting gallery in London, but not to be missed...More

Book Freud/Bacon in advance to get cheaper tickets (17 pounds) but also the main collection continues to be wonderful. A little off the beaten track at Pimlico but well worth it! Good luck and enjoy!

Only had time for a quick visit, but even that was superb! An iconic museum that you just have to go back to.

There are so many different exhibits and works of art that I need more than one trip to see and really appreciate them all but I enjoyed my trip to The Tate Britain and will definitely be back soon.

Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle
architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art
lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class
Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art
from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and

We went on a Saturday in the rain and just walked straight in so I wouldn't have thought there would be a problem during the week at all with queues
