What a wonderful place. We had a great day here. Free of charge if you can’t afford it (donation welcomed and definitely worth it if possible)! The art is incredible and we were in here for hours.

All too Human and the (mostly French) Impressionists in London (during the last 3 decades of the C19). The first is on till late August and the other until the end of the first week in a May. Don’t miss either of them. We committed Easter Sunday morning, fearing that it might be packed but, although there were good numbers, they were not inconvenient or oppressive and it was possible to spend time looking at everything.
Bacon, Freud, Rego, Auerbach etc, well assembled and explained. Great stuff. The Impressionists was better than I’d hoped. We learnt at school about the cultural refugees driven by the Franco-Prussian war and the Paris insurrection but I hadn’t thought through the extent and importance of the body of work created in London. And their take on the British capital was often very different from perception of the local artistic and wider communities. Seeing well known and many ignored local landmarks and settings dealt with by these artists is surprising, intriguing and enlightening.

Too good to miss. If you feel a bit jaded and cautious having entered too often the bustle and thronging of the young Tate sister at Bankside, take a different look back here at Millbank. If like us you find it easy to use the benefits of Membership but are perhaps becoming disappointed that the members facilities at the Other Place are more often than not rammedwith punters making them less attractive, rest assured that the members’ spaces in the rotunda and grand salon above the entrance spaces at Tate Britain are still extensive enough to cope and are satisfying and easy going zones to relax. The catering isn’t bad either.

A nice museum and great exhibition. A nice comfortable facility. Easy to find it with the underground.

Love this building in and out. Light and airy and great to look at and appreciate. Freud and Bacon good as usual. Enjoyed seeing work by Euan Uglow, Celia Paul, Jenny Saville, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye for the first time.Well worth a visit. Easily reached by underground. Pimlico station points you to the correct way out for Tate, then when you reach top of stairs no further signs. That is not helpful. Turn left and any right hand turning takes you to the river Thames. Turn left and it is on the left overlooking Thames. Café very well run and comfortable.

This is a brilliant opportunity to view some wonderful works of art. Yes there are rooms of works by well-known artists such Turner and Constable, but there are also some amazing works by others.
Don't miss it.
