TATE BRITAIN, TATE MODERN AND TATE ST. IVES.
The Tate Galleries in London and Cornwall offer wonderful insights into British art, history and culture. Tate Britain, which first opened in 1897 displaying just a small number of artworks, is today the custodian of the national collection of British art from circa 1500. Tate St. Ives, perched above Porthmeor Beach with views across the Atlantic Ocean, exhibits work by modern British artists with links to the area and is the winner of the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018. Meanwhile, Tate Modern, located at the disused Bankside Power Station, focuses on contemporary works since 1900, with its vast original turbine hall used for regular commissioned temporary displays of jaw-dropping proportions. Even if you’re a regular to the galleries, there is always something new to see and explore.
