Tate Britain is the home of British art from 1500 to the present day and is a great place to take your children for an introduction to art. As the gallery web site states:

You don't need to be an expert to look at or talk about art. And don't feel you have to `get it` to enjoy it, take whatever you like from a piece.

Audio tours and free daily guided tours are available and for younger children the gallery hosts a number of family events throughout the year. Check the website out for more details.



Opening Hours

Open: Daily 10.00-18.00; Closed 24,25,26 December. Last admission to special exhibitions at 17.15

Restaurant is available but is a little pricey. For young children you are better off taking your own food as there is plenty of space inside to picnic and a large green at the front overlooking the river if the weather is nice.

What baby facilties are available?

Baby changing facilities and buggy park are available.

Disabled access:

Lifts are available to all levels.
