One of my favourite spaces in London – Eptesin’s Jacob and the Angel is just stunning.
We went to see the John Milton exhibition and it was amazing, my bf who’s not very artistic loved it.
It’s a lovely place for a wander on an afternooon.
Plus it’s free!!!
Lovely gallery. I went to see John Craxton in August,marvellous.
I passed through a room with Chamber music playing to a video by Mark Wallinger.
The Exit Gates of Heathrow. Ordinary people become like angels in slow motion set to this choral air. Brilliant & permanent I am delighted to say.
The Tate runs workshops too : I went to one for the homeless in Oct (see my pic)
they loved it too.It was run in the Turner Gallery : a
part of the Tate which was built from money which Turner left,along
with his entire collection to house for the Nation.
Really enjoy going to this gallery. Such a variety of art work from photography, video, sculpture to watercolour - all by British artists!
Excellent day trip for children - great workshops for schools, which are free! & excellent children stations in the gallery that hold activity sheets and art equipment. Excellent day out!

What's up with that Turner Prize? I never get it. There's so much phenomenal art in this country and then you see the candidates for the Turner Prize, scratch your head and say huh?
Anyway, aside from that, most of the stuff at Tate Britian is flipping awesome. At the moment, there's a fab exhibition of pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge that's well worth checking out. The photos are crisp, historic and offer a fascinating look at innovations just after the onset of the camera's invention.
And the massively comprehensive Henry Moore show earlier this year was probably one of the year's best in the whole UK.
Often overshadowed by the more popular - and populist - Tate Modern, Tate Britain is nonetheless a great art space to keep in mind. The restaurant's very good too (great chips).
I'll be back ... many, many more times I reckon.
Idea way to spend a rainy bank holiday Saturday.
Excellent Henry Moore exhibition at the moment which is well worth a look. Pictures of miners and tje underground bomb shelters during the war are very moving.
Top tip for londoners would be to become a Tate member for about £60 which allows you and a guest free entry to all the Tate exhibitions for a year and the use of the members room at each venue - bargain.

Well worth a visit, even if you can't afford to visit an exhibition there are loads of other really interesting pieces to view.
Its a haven, to step out of your stressful day and just
switch off and become engrossed with the art what ever your tastes are, there is something here for you.
The Chris Ofili exhibition was very interesting in that it shows how someone can come from nothing and become famous. It shows how marketing in the artworld can be attained.
The film at the end was the best bit of the exhibition as it showed you what things you saw in his artwork as well as what things you may have missed and how he tried to convey them and gave us an idea as to why he conveyed them to his audience.
Chris comes across as thought provoking and intelligent and you begin to appreciate the work he has done and why he did it.
Elephant dung was only the beginning of his genius his 2000 work is also so different and you can see how life has changed him.
Enjoyable and fun to see! An eye opener and a positive reflection on what can be achieved if we know how.
I visited for the room that recreates William Blake’s only solo exhibition in 1809. This was a bit of a disappointment, as there were only a few, small paintings to see, some of which were in poor condition. However, there is always plenty to see at Tate Britain, with British art from the 16th to the 21st century. You can take your pick, from Gainsborough to Damian Hirst. A cultured way to spend a couple of hours.
