Tate Britain

KidRated’s Tate Britain Top Tips:

  • You can have breakfast on weekends at the Rex Whistler Restaurant 
  • The Djanogly Cafe serves great tea and cakes
  • Take a look at their family tips

 

Not as popular with families as its younger brother, the Tate Modern, the Tate Britain is still very accommodating to kids of all ages. The gallery holds the biggest collection of British art from 1570 to present day in the world. It also houses the annual Turner Prize winner.

 

The profits of both the restaurant and the cafe go directly back into the gallery. There is also a great shop which has a lot of goodies for kids.

 

The Tate Britain always has temporary exhibitions. Some, naturally, are more child friendly than others. However there are also lots of activities for kids and families and most of them are FREE! Click here to see what is coming up.

 

The BP collections are free. In the collection there are rooms dedicated to some of the best British artists such as J.M.W. Turner and William Blake. Also look out for John Everett Millais’s Ophelia which is one of the gallery’s most famous paintings.


Booking Advice:

  • Entrance is FREE
  • Under 12 can go free to temporary exhibitions too
  • Buy Tickets Now for the London Pass which will allow all your family free access to some exhibitions

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • There’s step-free access on the side of the building. Bigger kids like to look up and see the bomb damage.
  • In the Turner gallery there are some ‘secret’ stairs with more smaller exhibits up there.
  • Tate Britain​ is family-friendly and there’s usually an art trolley available at weekends and in school holidays so you can try and draw the paintings you like.
  • It may well be a grand building but Tate are keen to be considered welcoming to all ages so don’t worry if the kids are a little lively.
