When Tate Modern opened in 2000 it was like a cultural rocket going off over London. Tate Modern symbolised and crystallised everything the world needed to know about Cool Britannia. It got 5.25 million visitors in its first year and, boom, the rest is history.

London was stuck in the 1970s before Tate Modern, and its opening shifted London’s world cultural status in one quick hit, suddenly elevating the city to match New York and Paris.

Its stunning building – the old Bankside power station, its dramatic location on the Southbank of the Thames, opposite St Paul’s, and just across the Millennium Bridge, make it a must-visit destination regardless of the art packed inside.

But let’s not forget that the art is the main draw, and Tate Modern is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art in the world. And as if a whole power station wasn’t enough room to fill with art, they opened their new Switch House and The Tanks spaces in 2016 – the former being a 10 storey, 22 thousand square metre art space.

Free to enter, with some special exhibitions charging entry and ticketed, if you are visiting a number of exhibitions across both the Tate Modern and Tate Britain on your trip, it’s worth investigating membership.
