We wouldn't describe this as a spectacular view, but it's definitely worth seeking out if you're already planning to visit the Tate Modern anyway (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 when you're standing outside.)

If you pick a seat next to the bar window then you'll get a great view of the Millennium Bridge and the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. The buildings directly in front of St. Paul's will never win any architectural awards, but it's quite nice sitting there with a beer and watching the people strolling along Bankside, and the boats motoring up the Thames.

Have a read of Craig's blog before you go, because he's written a review of Tate Modern. It's not his favourite gallery in the world (in fact, he doesn't like it at all -- but that's because he's not a fan of modern art), but he still thinks the building itself is worth looking at. It used to be an old power station, and the stomach of the building has been left empty. It's just a vast blackened chasm now, usually with a giant art installation inside -- the architecture, at least, is genuinely impressive.
