Tate Modern, housed in the former Bankside Power station on the River Thames, is Britain's national museum of modern and contemporary art, and the world’s most visited modern art gallery.

There is a fantastic collection that is free to visit. You can see work by artists from around the globe including Louise Bourgeois, Yayoi Kusama, Henri Matisse, Cornelia Parker, Pablo Picasso, and Mark Rothko. The Start Display introduces you to some of Tate’s best loved artworks.

Tate Modern is home to the world’s first permanent museum space dedicated to performance. The former oil tanks for the power station are now a subterranean gallery to explore live art. The aweinspiring Turbine Hall is the dramatic setting for new annual art commissions.

From the Viewing Terrace you can enjoy magnificent views across the River Thames including St Paul’s Cathedral, and as far as Canary Wharf and Wembley Stadium. There are a number of cafes, restaurants and shops to enjoy in the gallery.

Tate Modern is fully accessible with a ramped entrance into the Turbine Hall and accessible parking. Wheelchairs, mobility scooters and walkers are available to borrow. There are lifts to move around the gallery and accessible toilets including a changing places toilet. 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.
