One of the most outstanding things about the Tate Modern is simply the amazing space of the galleries themselves. I don’t ever remember seeing a gallery so fit for its mission of displaying art. The rooms are spacious which allows the works to have their...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.

Free entry. Busy (very busy). If you’re into modern art then this is the place to be. A few of the exhibits were interesting but I wouldn’t choose to go back.

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.
