Tate Britain Rotunda

Tate Britain is housed in a beautiful building on the banks of the Thames in London.  You can use a side entrance but I love climbing the grand stairs at the front.  Once inside you are confronted with the Rotunda and choice.  Do you turn left and embark on a ‘Walk through British Art’ or do you go right for immersion in Turner or do you go down and round to the café for coffee?  Decisions, decisions.  Which would you choose?

    the answer has to be both, just the order that is in question! Lovely view up showing off the height of the building. #MySundayPhoto

    I suspect going for a coffee would often be my first choice although I like the sound of the walk through British art. Beautiful building and definitely worth looking up to admire the rotunda 🙂

      Coffee always features highly on any outing for me!

    I’d walk through British Art. I must visit Tate Britain, I’e never managed to go. The interior of the building certainly makes for a good photographic subject. #MySundayPhoto

      And this is just the first space!

    Hi Catherine, don’t you hate having to make choices? I’d probably head to the cafe to decide which way to head first… It does look like an interesting looking building too.

    Maybe a hot chocolate first 🙂 So many different aspects to the rotunda, you’ve captured them beautifully. #MySundayPhoto

      With or without marshmallows? ☕️

        Without! Not cream either. I’m a purist 🙂

          We like to melt cubes of dark chocolate into milk at home

            Omg that sounds amazing!

    I’d definitely go for coffee out of the two choices. I love the Tate. Such a great building, and in such a nice part of town too.

      It was a lovely sunny day when I visited, just right for a stroll across Vauxhall Bridge and along the river

    I haven’t been to Tate Britain since I was a child, since it was just The Tate! I think I’d start with Turner.

    Such a beautiful building, and one of my favourite galleries too! #sundayphoto

    Ooh err that’s a difficult one because I’d want to do both. Stunning ceiling though!

    It is always worth pausing and looking up. Ceilings are just beautiful in these old buildings #MySundayPhoto

    Such a beautiful building. I’d definitely be heading to the cafe first… probably to check out the hundreds of photos I’d just taken in the entrance! 😃

    It really is a beautiful building. I went with my best friend back in October because there was an exhibition she wanted to see. It cost us a fair amount, was dull as anything (which even she agreed at the end). I’m definitely more on the Turner side, which wasn’t her thing so we headed off after the exhibition.

    All of it! What a totally beautiful building x #MySundayPhoto
