Tate Britain: Guided Tours & Talks ★★★★★ FREE


There are three  types of free tour at Tate Britain. The Free Guided Tours focus on some highlights of the collection, while the Archive tours explore some lesser known of over a million items relating to British art that are  held by the Tate Britain. The Social Class Tours encourage an examination of  how social class is represented and explored in the collection,  emphasizing underrepresented perspectives. The theme of these tours changes every 4 months. There are also 15 minutes talks about specific works. A different work is featured every month. Depending on your time they are all worthwhile, but the most popular is, of course, the Turner tour.
