Where London - - Sightseeing -


The sis­ter gallery to Tate Mod­ern com­pleted a £45 mil­lion trans­for­ma­tion of the old­est part of the Grade II-listed build­ing, cre­at­ing new spa­ces for dis­play, ed­u­ca­tion and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties, plus a re­vamp of the res­tau­rant.


Home to the world’s largest col­lec­tion of works by JMW Turner – the Turner Be­quest com­prises 300 oil paint­ings and thou­sands of sketches, sketch­books and wa­ter­colours – Tate Bri­tain is also the place to see fab­u­lous mas­ter­pieces by Gains­bor­ough, Mil­lais and Hog­a­rth.


Tate Bri­tain houses the largest col­lec­tion of Bri­tish artists in the world, in­clud­ing Fran­cis Ba­con and Lu­cian Freud. This month you can see Sculp­ture for a Mod­ern World (to 25 Oct; be­low), a ma­jor ret­ro­spec­tive of Bar­bara Hep­worth’s ca­reer.
