Tate Britain reviews
I wanted to book lunch at the Whistler Restaurant but was directed to the Grand Saloon instead. The room was airy and bright but without atmosphere. The menu was very limited as was the wine list... more »
Good range of exhibitions, however very busy and crowded areas, despite COVID measures. Arrangement and volume of people made it difficult to view & enjoy some of the art. more »
Amazing experience - allow hours to enjoy. Marvellous range of art, sculpture etc. housed in an impressive building and displayed perfectly. Do not rush simply savor and enjoy. Excellent cafe too - take the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy a coffee if you can.
Went here to see a photograph exhibition. It was pretty good although very busy, so at times you were waiting to see things. Strangely enough you had to book time slots, so I thought that over crowding would have been avoided. Anyway a lovely place, really easy to find right on the Thames embankment
