A stunning Members room

A two-year renovation project completed in 2013 transformed the home of British art. Today, Tate Britain boasts improved access, new learning spaces, updated catering outlets and, of course, the stunning Members Room.

It is a space that warrants the cost of membership alone.
Ellis Woodman, The Telegraph

Beautifully restored by Architects Caruso St John, this project was only made possible with the help of Tate Members who contributed a remarkable £1 million towards this incredible transformation.

The new Members room is lovely and reasonably priced

The circular balcony of the Rotunda’s domed atrium houses an elegant café and bar for Tate Members. This unique space was closed to visitors in the 1920’s and was later home to the Director’s office as well as Tate’s Library & Archive. Now transformed into Tate Britain’s Members Room, it features furniture inspired by leading British Arts and Crafts designers active in 1897 – the founding year of the gallery. On the upper floor is the Grand Saloon, a light-filled space overlooking the Thames, created to host seminars and events.
