Beginning your Livtours Private Tate Modern Guided Tour, on the banks of the river Thames, your expert will begin by introducing the subject in hand and the fascinating area the museum is located in. Southwark has been associated with the arts and entertainment since the 16th century. Setting the scene you will enter a beautifully restored power station, combining industrial grandeur with open spaces to create a perfectly calm atmosphere to view the richest collection of modern art in the UK. Described as an industrial cathedral originally designed to generate power, the brick building that now houses the art was designed by London architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scot (designer of London’s iconic red telephone boxes) the building has changed, adapted, and reinvented itself, just like the art it houses and the city it calls home.

As your expert art historian leads you into the museum, begin discussing the nature of art and how we approach, interpret, and interact with images. How modern art affects the way we view the world and what even defines art as a subject. With your tailor-made private tour engage with your guide at different levels, beginning with a crash course in modern art if you wish or discussing your favorite works of art you have come to see. There is no other way to fully immerse yourself in the world of impressionism, DADA, surrealism, or cubism than with your very own expert to lead you. Learn more about Monet and modern arts impressionist break away from classical and romantic realistic painting, how impressionism developed into more abstract forms, Spanish giants such as Picasso and Dali, and how the conflict shaped their distressing images, and dive into the world of 1960s pop art with Andy Warhol. Dodge the crowds and enjoy the thought-provoking space at your comfort and leisure, ensuring you don’t ever feel rushed as you maximize your time visiting the must-see and your highlights.

  • Thanks LivTours!

    We took the guided tour of the British Museum with this company and were so pleased with the tour and the guide, that we booked their tour to visit the Tate. Again, we were extremely satisfied with the entire experience. The company is very customer-oriented and the guides are not just knowledgeable but also seem to be anxious to share that knowledge with you.... not like so many other bored (and boring) guides that we have had with other companies. Book with LivTours. You won't be disappointed!

  • Highly recommend

    So glad we booked this tour to visit the Tate Museum in London. There is a rich collection of works and having a well-informed and charming guide to tell us the history, about the life of the artist and point out details made all the difference in the world. So much better than going on our own with just a tour book in hand.

  • Tate Modern

    We had taken LivTour's tour of the Musee D'Orsay in Paris so we knew we were booking the best when we signed up for their tour of the Tate Modern while in London. Once again, our guide was excellent in every way: an expert in art history and an artist herself with a warm and friendly personality. Thanks to her, we will fondly remember our visit to the Tate and all of the unbelievable art that we saw there.

  • Fascinating tour

    Our tour of the Tate Museum with LivTour's guide, Mary, was just fascinating. Both my husband and I are very interested in modern art and the Tate has one of the best collections not to be missed. But the real treat was Mary's detailed and rich insights into the art and the artists that we were seeing. Thank you Mary for a truly wonderful experience!
