A guided tour of the Tate Britain and Tate Modern

About this Event

Henry Tate, who made his fortune as a sugar refiner, was the original benefactor providing the funding and his collection of British nineteenth-century art to the nation for the first Tate Gallery, which opened to the public in 1897. Since then it has become the home of British Art from 1500 to the present day. It was just over a hundred years before Tate Modern, a former power station, opened its doors to visitors wishing to see international modern and contemporary art.

A visit to London’s two Tates has been arranged to give both students currently studying art history, eg Open University courses A111, A112, A226 and A344, or thinking about embarking on a course and others interested in art to have the opportunity to learn more about some of the thousands of exhibits housed in these two galleries. The tour will be led by experienced OU tutor, Jessica Saraga.

Meet at Tate Britain, Manton Street entrance at 10.15am, for a prompt start at 10.30 am when Jessica will lead us through a themed selection of British Art. At 12:30 we will break for lunch (own expense) and recommend taking the Tate boat* to commence our visit to Tate Modern at 2:30 pm. Please meet inside on the bridge across the Turbine Hall, which can be accessed from the river entrance (or also from the Blavatnik entrance at the back of the gallery). The day will end at 4:00 pm.

*IMPORTANT Boat fare is not included. The Tate Boat runs between the two galleries every 20-30 minutes. There is a range of price ranges for standard fares, Oyster and TfL Travelcards. Full details can be found at https://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-boat
