The Tate Modern
Tate Modern is a million miles away from its sister Tate Britain, even if they are just across the river from each other. Created in 2000, Tate Modern displays international contemporary art in the truly unique setting of a disused power station, creating use out of a one-time eyesore on the banks of the Thames. Its permanent collection includes works by Picasso and Matisse, Dali, Pollock and Rothko, as well as later works by Lichtenstein and Warhol. It also has a large collection of modern art from beyond the 1980s. There are special exhibitions held at Tate Modern, while the Turbine Hall puts on large-scale installations throughout the year that always attracts wide media coverage. Meanwhile, visitors can head over to Tate Britain to see British art dating back to 1500, from Hogarth to Francis Bacon and the annual Turner Prize artists. There are plenty of other things to do on the South Bank near Tate Modern, including a trip to Shakespeare's Globe or a ride on the London Eye.
