Yes, as always, we welcome visitors with young children and buggies to come and enjoy the galleries.
Baby changing facilities are available on the lower floor near the Djanogly Café and near the Auditorium in the Clore Gallery.
You can breastfeed wherever you feel comfortable.
All cloakrooms are open. Items larger than cabin bag size (55cm x 40cm x 22cm) are not permitted in the galleries. Cloakroom capacity is limited, so if the cloakroom is full, we regret we will not be able to let your bring your item in.
There are no self-service lockers at Tate Britain.
Visit the Djanogly Café on the lower floor to enjoy hot and cold food and drink. Take advantage of our Kids Pick and Mix lunch offer which includes a sandwich, fruit and a snack. High chairs are available.
You can also eat packed lunches outside the gallery entrances or in Millbank Gardens.
You don’t need to be an expert to look at or talk about art. Don’t feel you have to ‘get it’ to enjoy it – take whatever you like from a piece.
You and your family can try these activities in any of the galleries. Remember it's ok to talk at Tate! It's ok to make some noise!
We encourage young people to explore art and idea to take ownership of the gallery.
Strike a pose
Get your child to secretly choose an artwork with a person in it. Once they have looked carefully at the pose, find a space in the room and encourage them to try to recreate the pose. The rest of the group can then try and spot the artwork the pose came from
Give us a clue
Encourage your child to find a portrait in the gallery that reminds them of someone in your group; someone famous; someone you all know (perhaps a neighbour or a friend). With the help of clues, the rest of the group can guess the chosen person
See it from their perspective
Get down to your child’s height and see what they see. The change in eye-level might make you think and feel differently
Pick up a pencil and draw, doodle or dream within the gallery.
