Museum Caffès are known to be tourist magnets, swarming with screaming children that unleash their creativity on paper matts, walls, and other people. This is why you will not see a lot of Londoners hanging in them, especially if they just want some peace of mind.
TATE Modern is not an exception to this rule. It is busy, and when you don’t hear a laughing or crying child, you hear the clicks of the cameras snapping away. However, here is a secret: avoid the classic tourist rush hour times, grab a friend, get in the lift (did I mention the 7 floors?), and prepare to be wowed.
There is no way you will not find yourself taking a sharp inhale when you lay eyes on the amazing views that await you, or the fantastic selection of drinks it provides.
If you are there at the right time (avoid weekends at all cost), it is the best place to take a deep breath and remind yourself how beautiful the city is. Capture it in a dead time (early hours on weekdays), and it is simply… magnificent.
