About the Tate Britain

Major art gallery on the banks of the Thames.

It houses a substantial collection of the art of the UK since Tudor times, and in particular has large holdings of the works of J. M. W. Turner, who bequeathed all his own collection to the nation.

It is one of the largest museums in the country.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
