Tate Modern is one of the world's vanguards of modern and contemporary art. Installations and exhibits here change periodically, so check to see what's on display before you visit. Past installations have included a giant tuba hanging from the ceiling and diatribes playing through speakers. You'll also encounter art that's more historical, yet still modern. The Poetry and Dream gallery contains Surrealist works, Structure and Dream presents abstract art, and Energy and Process focuses on Arte Povera--a radical modern art movement that took place in Italy from 1967-1972. To learn more about the galleries' highlights, take one of the daily free tours lasting about 45 minutes. Our London holiday planner makes visiting Tate Modern and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Tate Modern reviews
We went for lunch before visiting the museum and enjoyed a nice wine list, so we had a nice 2019 Bourgogne Blanc. We also enjoyed the leeks, burrata,hake and everything was delicious.

lovely place! the artworks are genuinely amazing and awe-inspiring. entry is free and if you book before hand, there is barely any wait. it is simply picturesque. it is near to London bridge station, so the journey is easy. just outside it is a river, a park and beautiful bridges and buildings. there are also many food places nearby so it is perfect for a day out
Great selection available as part of the free exhibitions, and a clear and simple booking process (part of easing the foot-flow during the pandemic). Hugely appreciative of what we have access to in this country at no cost! Only thing to note is that if you have the earliest entry time booked, as we did (10am), there is very little waiting space under cover and out of the rain, and the coffee shop doesn't open till the same time as the museum.
