Why locals love it

Developing alongside London's increasing population is the people's interpretation of what modern art is for them. Formerly the Bankside Power Station, today Tate Modern's industrial interior symbolises the on-going production of ideas from local and international artists who all year round expose Londoner's to artistry in all its shock and awe.

Why you should visit it

The timeless debate of ‘what makes art’ is an unbiased one and with the advent of new technology more people from all walks of life are beginning to appreciate the effect of art in their lives. Tate Modern hosts a huge range of both free and ticketed exhibitions often with an emphasis on interactivity to encourage everyone to get involved.

Special tip

If it’s your first time try and enter from the Turbine Hall on the Western side, it’s an amazing first look at one of London’s best buildings.
