Reasons for trip

The Tate Britain gallery, which used to be called The Tate Gallery before Tate Modern was thought of, is on Millbank, London overlooking the Thames. The building was endowed by the Tate family, of Tate and Lyle sugar fame. It is easy to find, the nearest tube station in Pimlico on the Victoria Line, and it is near Vauxhall Bridge over the Thames. It is a wonderful gallery and one that should not be missed.

It has just been refurbished inside recently, and you can now walk through the collection of art covering 500 years of history, arranged chronologically.

It has a brand new staircase inside, which is a find architectural feature, but the main attraction is the painting and sculpture. Here are some of the best Turner and Constable paintings ever, as well as Pre-Raphaelites, and earlier works. The modern art is not neglected either.

In addition there is an excellent restaurant, and a cafe, a shop and a programme of Talks and Lectures. See their website for more details of these.

At present there is a special exhibition called Art Under Attack, dealing with Iconoclasm.
