Britain's premier modern art gallery sits on the south bank of the Thames housed in a former power station, close to other Bankside attractions. From the courtyard, the river views are almost as impressive as the art inside. It's a must for anyone interested in art and you do need to allow a full day to explore the four levels. The exhibitions change regularly, but famous pieces by great artists are guaranteed in this light, airy gallery. Tate Modern has its own restaurant, but you might want to walk down to one of the restaurants overlooking the river to the east, or head over to Borough Market. You can pop in and out with your ticket - but there's a lot of walking, so wear some comfy shoes!
Getting to Tate Modern
Tate Modern is across the river from Blackfriars Station, or you can walk directly across the famous Millennium Bridge from St Paul's Cathedral. It is also a short distance from London Bridge (with Docklands Light Railway connections) and both Mansion House and Southwark tube stops. The water taxis that go and east and west along the river stop at nearby Bankside Pier.
