The old power station

This daunting edifice by the River Thames is one of the most visited places in London. Tourists flock from near and far to explore the Tate Modern gallery’s collection of art.

The building used to be Bankside Power Station and is a solid, industrial gem of architecture. In fact my visit was about capturing the vast space of the old turbine hall, now used to house ambitious art installations – but empty when I went. 

I clambered up the levels as visitors shuffled around the exhibits, and of course went to the upper floor which offers a beautiful London view.

Tate Modern is a world away from its older, more genteel counterpart Tate Britain, captured in an earlier post.
