Not sure what to get up to this Valentine’s Day? Whether you’re newly coupled-up, properly long-term or just not into the whole V-day thing, don’t worry – as long as you love art, there’s a tour for you
Each year we’re reminded of a funny little thing called love – and whether we’re in it or not. Luckily, art does not judge whether you’ve succeeded in securing your partner of choice for this particular day, nor does it care when your likely marriage date is due to be. So, although it’ll be pretty impossible to escape the red roses, chocolate hearts and sentimental tokens on every corner, let’s wade through them together. Whether youre in a relationship or not, welcome to our tip-top guide of art to see at Tate Britain and Tate Modern this weekend, where the only love required is one of art (actually, a vague interest will do).
Choose from three tours below, and dont forget – theres a handy boat to go between the galleries that you can catch. We recommend finishing up at one of the fancy members bars (the view from Tate Moderns is particularly heartwarming, but if you’re not a member try the level 7 restaurant).
Whats love got to do with it
As not everyone is loved-up (or wants to declare it to the world), we thought now would be a good time to remember the adage: that to love someone else you have to love yourself first (just be wary of slipping into narcissism…) Take the tour.
In it for the long run
Youve had highs, youve had lows. Youve had the intimacy of eating pizza in your pyjamas and the stability of silence over dinner. For those who hear about Valentines Day and are reminded oh yes, were in love, this tours for you. Take the tour.
…and dont quite know what to do for a hot date on V-day? Well, heres a few unashamedly romantic art works to get to know each other by. After all, Valentines day is really for you.Take the tour.
