Tate Britain

The oldest gallery in the Tate network, the Tate Britain houses a permanent collection of British art. Its focus is on British works from 1500 to the present day, though it’s perhaps best known as the home of the Turner Prize: the controversial art show is held here every year, with occasional exceptions. The Turner Prize is of course named after the famous painter J.M.W. Turner, and you’ll find a large body of his work here too.
