We wouldn't class this as a spectacular view, but it's definitely worth seeking out if you're already planning to visit the Tate Modern (and you fancy a cup of tea).

On level 6 of the gallery is a restaurant which offers sit-down meals and a bar. (It's that big glass-fronted level that you can see outside, on the roof of the gallery.)

If you pick a seat next to the bar window then you'll get a great view of the Millennium Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral. The buildings in front of St. Paul's will never win any architectural awards, but the cathedral's fantastic dome is always worth a look.

Have a read of Craig's blog before you go, because he's written a review of Tate Modern. You can also check if there are any exhibitions at the Tate Modern as well.
