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 it very well.
And what a beautiful space the central hall is.

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" merchandise as it closed within a week of our visit. The permanent collection (free entry) is a MUST SEE, full of amazing historic iconic artworks by the likes of Turner, Constable and Bacon.

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. Its great for kids and wheelchair friendly. The pictures are generally hung in good positions but some are quite high up. Cameras are allowed. Before going, look on the Tate Britain website and plan your walk around the rooms which suit your taste in art and which are arranged in convenient period blocks. Then buy a paper map for £2.16C may not suit everybody and 20C may be for the younger folks. The real gems are in the Turner collection in the Clore Gallery and among the pre-Raphaelites in the 1840 room. Could take you as little as 20 minutes if you only want to see some pictures in one room but 2 hours if you want to take in the history of British art over the last 500 years. Look out for the opportunity to join a talk on one of the major pictures. You could break the visit by going to the excellent café in the basement which sells good value snacks, soup, sandwiches which you can either eat in or share with the flies on a small outside terrace. There is also a wonderfully stocked shop just inside the entrance. Go to it - but give a generous donation; it deserves it.

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.
