About Tate Britain
Tate Britain, which opened in 1897, is the world centre for the understanding and enjoyment of British art and works actively to promote interest in British art internationally. The displays at Tate Britain call on the greatest collection of British art in the world to present an unrivalled picture of the development of art in Britain from the 1500 to the present day.
Some of the highlights of the Tate collection of British art include rich holdings of portraiture from the age of Queen Elizabeth I; of the work of William Hogarth, sometimes called the father of English painting; of the eighteenth-century portraitists Gainsborough and Reynolds; of the animal painter George Stubbs; of the artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood who revolutionised British art in the nineteenth century; and in the twentieth century of the work of Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Francis Bacon.
Special attention is given to these three outstanding British artists from the Romantic age. Blake and Constable have dedicated spaces within the gallery, while the unique Turner Collection of about 300 paintings and many thousands of watercolours is housed in the specially built Clore Gallery.
The gallery is open until 10pm and has free entry!
When you arrive at the station, we will divide people into small groups to explore the gallery together. The visit is unguided.
Afterwards we will head to The Morpeth Arms pub, which is next door to the Tate for a chat over a drink.
If you can't see us outside the station, please call.
Look out for the group sign -
Hope to see you there!
