Tate’s website was launched in 1998 to support Tate’s aim of increasing public awareness, understanding and appreciation of art

  • Example of current Tate web page design

Following the development of the Tate Online Strategy 2010–12, the website was relaunched for the first time in early 2012 with a complete restructure of the site’s content, refreshed design and new technical architecture. An archive of the previous Tate website is available from the National Archives.

The current digital strategy, Tate Digital Strategy 2013–15: Digital as a Dimension of Everything, outlines the roadmap of digital developments in the coming years.


We aim to comply with all Level A guidelines in the Web Accessibility Initiative Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 throughout our core digital content. We will continue working to exceed this standard and meet Level AA guidelines in the future.
