Tate Modern Free Guided Tours and Talks

a guide points at a series of photographic works in Tate Modern

Learn about the art in Tate Modern with a talk on a number of artworks or a guided tour around part of the gallery

Each session is different and packed with fascinating insights, information and stories. Our Guides come from a wide range of backgrounds and their talks reflect their passions and interests.

All tours and talks last around 45 minutes and start at the meeting point on Level 2 in the Natalie Bell Building.

Admission to the gallery is free but all visitors need a pre-booked collection ticket.

Tate Modern's entrance is via the Turbine Hall on Holland Street. There are automatic sliding doors and a ramp down to the entrance.

There are lifts to every floor of the Blavatnik and Natalie Bell buildings. Alternatively you can take the stairs.

  • Fully accessible toilets are located on every floor on the concourses.
  • A quiet room is available to use in the Natalie Bell Building on Level 4.
  • Ear defenders can be borrowed from the Ticket desks.

Visitor numbers are being carefully managed. There are increased cleaning regimes in high use areas, protective screens on desks and counters and hand sanitiser dispensers throughout the gallery.

To help everyone keep at a safe distance we are limiting and managing visitor numbers with tickets. You will be given individual packs or sanitised materials to use at creative workshops. Enhanced cleaning is in place and we’ll ask you to wear a face covering, unless you’re exempt.

When you visit:

  • Keep your distance from others
  • Please wear a face covering unless you are exempt

Most importantly, if you or anyone you live with has COVID-19 symptoms please stay at home.
