Tate Britain

Introduction to Tate Britain

The new Centenary Development at Tate Britain shows the world's largest display of British Art - 600 years of historic, modern and contemporary work shown under one roof. You can see work by key artists such as Turner, Gainsborough, Blake, Constable, Bacon, Hepworth, Hodgkin and Wearing in a new presentation - some rooms look at historical themes whilst others are devoted to a single major artist - all within a chronological sweep from 1500 to the present day.

The Architecture of Tate Britain

The opening of the Tate Centenary Development on 1 November 2001 completes the launch of Tate Britain, begun in March 2000. The Development was announced in 1997 - the Centenary year of the Tate Gallery, as it was previously known. It provides Tate Britain with ten new and five refurbished galleries as well as the dramatic new Manton Entrance on Atterbury Street providing visitors with full access, new visitor information points, a cloakroom, toilets and a shop.

The architects John Miller + Partners have ensured that the new and refurbished spaces and other visitor facilities beautifully enhance one of London's great public galleries. Equally the landscape architects Allies and Morrison have made certain that the new public space around the building creates a sensitive environment which also enhances access for visitors. The gallery has remained open while all this work has been carried out.
