About

Situated on Millbank on the former site of Millbank Prison, Tate Britain holds the largest collection of British art in the world. Walk through the history of British art from 1545 to the present day. See masterpieces for free by John Constable, John Everett Millais, Peter Blake, as well as outstanding modern and contemporary art from the likes of Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Barbara Hepworth, David Hockney and Bridget Riley.

Tate Britain is home to the largest collection of free paintings by J.M.W Turner. A master of history, landscape and marine painting, he challenged the style of the old masters, trailblazing in technique and subject matter. The gallery includes some of his greatest masterpieces such as Self-Portrait, Peace – Burial at Sea and Norham Castle, Sunrise.

There are two rooms dedicated to the work of sculptor Henry Moore where visitors can explore his large-scale sculptures such as Recumbent Figure. Tate Britain showcases cutting edge British art through temporary exhibitions and its annual art commission. It is also home to the annual Turner Prize award.

Enjoy tea and scones or lunch in the café and choose from a beautiful selection of books and gifts in the shop.

Tate Britain is fully accessible with a ramped entrance on Atterbury Street and accessible parking. Wheelchairs, mobility scooters and walkers are available to borrow. There are lifts to move around the gallery and accessible toilets and cloakroom. There is plenty of seating throughout the gallery. Large print guides, magnifiers and colour overlays are available for visually impaired visitors. Hearing loops are fitted at information desks and in the auditorium.
