Although the Tate Modern was advertised as free entrance, visitors are actually only permitted free entrance if they paid £5, which seemed not logic, either it is FREE or FEE. Staff at the entrance...

I love this building!! This building is beautiful! I love the architecture, specially the ceilings. Love the shapes created of the doorways, corridors and staircases. Being a photographer I managed to capture some great,creative shots. I would happily go here all day and just take photos of the building inside and out.
Wonderful place to spend a few hours. So much to see that is free, so much more in the special exhibitions. Well positioned beside the Thames. Plenty of toilets. Have just visited for a very different show. Still friendly and decently laid out. Could do with more seating inside the exhibitions
