  • Primera planta bien, muchas chavalas. La segunda, regular. Pero es que en la tercera, ni una eh?
  • The rotating exhibitions are great, but make sure you have time to explore the permanent collection. Look for Gunther Uecker's "White Field", one of our favorites.
  • It's difficult to remember how this old converted power station used to be before the Tate moved in in 2000, so successful has it been! One of the best view of the river, and some fab modern art too.
  • Try and swindle your way into the members bar on level 6 for a drink and take in an awesome view of London.
  • El caf Mocha es el mejor que prob. Mejor que Starbucks y a solo 2,10
  • You are one of the 4.7million art-lovers who visit the Tate galleries each year.
  • We like the Soviet propaganda posters in room 11. Sip a cocktail in the bar overlooking the view of the Thames and St Pauls Cathedral.
  • Housed in a former Power Station beside the Thames, Britain's national museum of modern art displays everything from Picasso to Warhol. Entry is free but special exhibitions will require tickets.
