We took advantage of the locals offer of £5 as we were both first time visitors. The space itself is big and open, and an interesting piece of modern architecture. But the "art" is something kids could draw. They have a St Ives studio which...More

My wife and I attended today with our 4 month old son. On a whole we enjoyed it. My son loved eyeing up the surf out of the window with me!

The Tate always manages to interest, entertain, aggravate, educate and uplift. Well laid out and I enjoy it every time, even though I’m not a particular Patrick Heron fan. Café’s really good too.
