Whatever exhibition is showing, the Tate Modern is always worth a visit by merit of its riverside position. This graceful former power station sits beside the river, opposite the sinuous Millennium Bridge, which leads over to the gleaming dome of St Paul’s Cathedral. If you’re in luck, the dizzyingly tall Turbine Hall will be housing a specially commissioned installation, each of which is a London event. The Tate Modern's permanent collections carry on where its sister concern, the Tate Britain, leave off, in 1900, and include works by Rothko, Warhol and Picasso. The temporary exhibitions, though a bit hit and miss, can be sensational.
