Architecture

Choose between the ߣߣƵapp Architecture Tour will take you through the former Bankside Power Station with its iconic Turbine Hall and Tanks that still smell of oil, before delving into the ambitious Blavatnik Building extension.

Or the rich history of Tate Britain from nineteenth-century neo-classicism, to the postmodern Clore Gallery and the transformation of the oldest part of our Grade II listed building through the Millbank Project.

90 minutes / ?18 per person (a minimum group size of 15 people).

We thoroughly enjoyed learning about all aspects of the building. My favourite memories were looking down on The Globe theatre, going into the oil container and experiencing the sound space in the basement.
