Join us for LGBTQIA+ tours at Tate Britain

The talks are aimed at exploring the Tate Collection through the lens of gender identity and sexuality. These fortnightly tours explore either the historic collection 1540–1910 or the contemporary collection 1930–present day.

Please enter the building with the pre-booked collection ticket and meet the guide at the top of the Manton stairs. Capacity is limited and this is on a first come first served basis on the morning of the tour.

Tate Britain's Manton Entrance is on Atterbury Street. It has automatic sliding doors and there is a ramp down to the entrance with central handrails.

Accessible and standard toilets are located on the lower floor. Changing Places toilets are currently not available at Tate Britain.
