Things to do:

The foremost collection of 20th Century art in the north, this satellite of the London gallery is a storehouse of wonders, from Warhol to Rodin.

A vibrant and imaginative series of exhibitions (including the phenomenon that was Summer of Love: Art in the Psychedelic Era) keeps The Tate one step ahead of the rest.

Recent headline grabbing events have included shows celebrating the works of Klimt and Picasso, but its the lesser known treats that delight the most: there’s always someone new to discover here.

A regular programme of Late at Tate events mixes art with socialising in events loosely based on the current exhibition. There’s a great cafe and shop here too.
