Tate Britain

Tate Britain is the national gallery of British art. Located in London right at Vauxhall Bridge, it is the oldest in the family of four Tate galleries which display selections from the Tate Collection.

The displays at Tate Britain feature selections from the Tate collection of British art arranged in a broad chronological sweep from 1500 to the present. Within this chronology individual rooms explore particular themes or show one artist in depth. Special attention is given to three outstanding British artists from the Romantic age. Blake and Constable have dedicated spaces within the gallery, while the Turner Collection of about 300 paintings and many thousands of watercolours is housed in the specially built Clore Gallery.

Tate Britain is also host of the Turner prize show, showcasing Britain's most debated fine arts award.
