Today's Rising Stars
Opened in 2000, this gallery has amazed industry insiders, art lovers and tourists. The museum, located among the drab, concrete blocks of Bankside, has incorporated a few of its original features from when it was a power station. Inside, there are many innovative and attention-grabbing works, a variety ranging from 1900 to the present, from the most important artists of the century, to today's rising stars. Admission is free, but a donation is appreciated. It's a must-see when visiting London.

The Switch House towers 10-stories over the Bankside, adding a unique twist - literally - to London's skyline. The brick and glass structure is shaped like a spiraling pyramid and houses some of the Tate Modern's massive collection. It is also heralded as one of the first spaces in the world dedicated to live art. Visitors to this section of the museum can wander through massive industrial spaces designed by Herzog & de Meuron in which live performances of modern art take place. Not to be missed is Level 10, the top floor of the structure that offers panoramic views of the London skyline, the Thames and the surrounding area. Visitors who are in the area at night should stop by to witness the illuminated lattice structure, which is sure to be a highlight of any trip to the Southwark area.
