Last November I had my little quickie trip to Europe, where I was invited to attend the VIP Blogger tour hosted by Treniq at the Sleep event. I stayed some extra days in London so I could explore places I didn’t had the chance to go when I was there to attend the Amara Interior Blog awards.
This place, Tate Modern, was on my list to visited then, but after walking and getting lost (it’s like something to do in London), it turned dark and I walked back to catch the bus back to my hotel. And after I was sitting in the hotel I figured out I just had to cross the bridge and within steps I would have been there. I was standing at the bridge next to Big Ol’ Ben.
Luckily this time the hostel I was staying in was close by the museum and it was something I wanted to see. The great thing about London is that all the museums are free. Like how cool is that?! Suck in some artistic culture for free.
Tate Modern is filled with modern and contemporary art. The building has already an art look with it. It’s huge and trust me you can spend your whole day in there. It is located in the former Bankside Power Station.
It’s a great place to hide from the cold. Seriously! Lots of spots to sit and relax and enjoy the environment around you. I think you can go with a book or some work and really get some reading and work done there.
On the third floor you can pass the book store and walk outside and check out the view of the city on the other side. Hear a street musician give out some awesome sound and just stare. I think in the summer time is packed outside.
I eventually didn’t see everything as I wanted to see a bit more of the city and it was getting dark outside, so I said goodbye to this beautiful place and went strolling along.
It’s been a while since I’ve been in a museum and especially one of arts and it was really refreshing to see it all. Many with great history behind it or others I was drawn by the colors it all had. There was 1 or 2 special exhibitions going on and for those you had to pay, but if you are a true art lover, you’ll pay the fee. I didn’t went in the exhibitions as there was already a lot of free art for me to see.
If you ever in London and need to reflect, go see this place.

It seems Tate Modern is a lovely place.I like the spacious area that others can spend time on sitting or looking around.Hope you also had great time in the Interior Blog award ceremony.
Yes, great museum. Thank you, had a lovely time two years ago at the awards. Seems so long ago now 😛
We’re headed to London in October! Hopefully we get a chance to visit. Adding to our list.
That's great…and it's not to cold yet that month 🙂
We have a couple museums here that are free. We visit one often to see the new exhibit. We just went to a new one last week that was free to the public and that was a fun visit.
I absolutely love your gorgeous photographs!!! I would so much adore being able to visit there someday. Shell
This is the one museums I keep missing when I visit the city!! And also the one museum I am dying to get to.
It's really worth the trip. Don't miss it next time 😉
Thank you so much Shell. Means a lot. Put it on the list 😉
Yes, great way to suck up some inspiration.
Tate Modern looks like a lovely place to visit. I'd love to visit there. Your pictures are beautiful!
