How a visitor is likely to respond to this space depends entirely on personal views on Modern Art. It is vast, great for pushchairs and wheelchair users: it has been built and conceived around spacial quality being as artful as the many concessions and installations...More

I have been waiting for months to visit Modiliagni in Tate modern, as I live in Paris. And I was fully satisfied. A great exhibition, well presented, a good story teller of the artist’s life. At the end you may feel that you could start...More

Just give yourself enough time, we arrived with four hours in hand, but really we should have focused on just the Boiler House or Blavatnik Building. Both would have equally have occupied our 4 hours. The key thing to remember if visiting is that you...More

Went for the first time. Interesting galleries. Fun playground in the entrance which had a nice buzz to it and which was busy and being well utilised by families due to half term. A good start! Opportunities to sit thanks to interesting film showing in...More

The overall exterior is hideous, but the entrance is vast(on first impression) however, all but one door cordoned off. First queue, the lifts similarly cordoned off. We...More

I haven’t been hear for years but it was well worth coming back. What an outstanding place - I didn’t understand everything I saw but still had a great time. I loved Degas’ ballerina in particular.

Nice building with lots of installation art so if that’s our thing you will probably have a ball. Not a lot of paintings and quite a lot of photographs. It’s free but to see anything of real interest to me i needed to pay.

There is something for everyone here. Even the building is interesting. I would recommend the really great view of London from balcony at top of Blavatnik Building (Level 10). You get stunning views of St Pauls, the City skyline, the Thames, the Shard and Tower...More

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

Most likely yes, but the queues are quick and you wouldn’t notice once you’re in.
