Tate Britain is a walk through British art history. Its highlights include sculptures by Henry Moore, romantic paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites, works by LS Lowry and David Hockney and a fine collection of Turners.

It’s not just Tate Britain’s art collection that has a traditional flavour; the building itself is an architectural work of art in the very classical sense.
Designed by Sidney R.J. Smith, Tate Britain’s Victorian building, with its grand porticoed facade, will satisfy most classical architecture buffs. Inside, its glorious central dome, sinuous spiral staircase and galleried rotunda give it the appearance of a temple or palace. #art
