  • AliBell – “Its not the first gallery I would recommend (the national is much better), but if you've done the others then you shouldnt definitely try and visit this one. Dont be put off by its somewhat out of the way location. There are some grat paintings in here by the likes of turner, constable and gainsborough. They are all british artists here -- that is why its called tate britain -- so obviously there isnt the range of artists that you will find at the national, but if you like landscapes then you will be more than Satisfied.

That is a lovely boatride that goes past lots of famous places, and is almost worth doing on its own”

A major inability to display all their big crowd pleaser. Avoid and go to the national gallery or tate modern or wallace collection. Visit only for the big paying exhibitions!!!”
