Housed in a huge converted power station on the south bank of the Thames, the Tate Modern art gallery is a striking example of London’s past colliding with its future " all in the name of art. With nearly 5 million visitors per year, it also boasts the status of most popular modern art gallery in the world. The immense main Turbine Hall hosts regular, specially commissioned exhibitions, with past contributors including Anish Kapoor and Ai Weiwei. Inside the museum, the (free) permanent collection holds works from the world’s top modern artists from Henri Matisse to Damien Hirst. The museum is also working to develop new spaces, with its three underground oil tank spaces (The Tanks) already open, and an 11-storey tower being built above it, to be opened in 2016.
