5. Tate Modern
Sitting grandly on the banks of the Thames is Tate Modern, Britain’s national museum of modern and contemporary art. Its unique shape is due to it previously being a power station. The gallery’s restaurants offer fabulous views across the city. Some exhibitions require tickets.
A visit to London isn’t complete without a trip to Tate Modern.
