We wandered in to the Tate expecting a modern art museum and were met with something else. The layout is confusing, the permanent and free collection quite scattered, and for popular special exhibits, you have to pay a fee and book ahead of time online....More

I went to see the "Magic Realism" (interesting but very disturbing) but loved the photography in art exhibition "shape of Light" and recommend you don't miss out!

The Clock presentation was amazing. Clips from movies and shows in different languages showing clocks synched to the current time. Mesmerizing !

Has great pieces of art at every corner, each floor and each hall has different themes introducing the visitor to a bunch of art masterpieces. Rothko's room was especially noteworthy. The viewing terrace at the top is also a must-visit.

Especially in the evening, go up to the balcony,overlooking the Thames and the London skyline. Have a zen experience absorbing the massive Rothko canvasses.

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
