UK Travel Guide


Tate Britain

Tate Britain was founded in 1897 and is situated on the site of what was previously Millbank Prison. It houses the National collection of British modern art which dates from 16th century to the present and includes works from Blake, Constable ( Flatford Mill), Gainsborough, Hogarth and Turner ( the works of Turner are actually now in the Clore Gallery). Due to lack of space as much as anything else the exhibits are changed regularly so one visit will hardly be the same as the last. There is a free Artbus service until 30 September 2000 which runs between the National Gallery, Tate Modern and Tate Britain every 30 minutes.
