Visited this place today. Not impressed with the art at all. If you like modern off the wall art then maybe it is for you. At least there is no entrance fee. Very disappointed.

Whenever you visit a Tate, it always makes you think. Some things you will like, some you just don’t get, some made us laugh out loud. I like the variety. The space is lovely. I like the high ceilings I didn’t like the brightly coloured...More

You will need to put aside at least 2-3 hours , The Tate is situated in the Albert Docks which is a great place to locate yourself for the day.
