Tate Modern information
One of London's most popular attractions, this outstanding modern and contemporary art gallery is housed in the creatively revamped Bankside Power Station south of the Millennium Bridge. A spellbinding synthesis of modern art and capacious industrial brick design, Tate Modern has been extraordinarily successful in bringing challenging work to the masses, both through its free permanent collection and fee-paying, big-name temporary exhibitions. A stunning extension is aiming for a 2016 completion date.
Free guided highlights tours depart at 11am, noon, 2pm and 3pm daily. Audioguides (in five languages) are available for £4 – they contain information about 50 artworks across the gallery and offer suggested tours for adults or children. Note the late night opening hours on Friday and Saturday.
