Situated on the banks of the Thames, the Tate Modern houses Britain’s national collection of international modern and contemporary art. It’s one of the most visited art galleries in the world and gives visitors a chance to see works by Picasso, Dali and Warhol – for free! After a few hours of exploring, you’re bound to have worked up an appetite so where should you head next? From ramen joints to tapas bars, here are ten great restaurants near the Tate Modern.
Swan at The Globe – Treat yourself to a riverside supper or afternoon tea at this elegant British restaurant.
Camino – Unwind after a day of sightseeing with tapas and a bottle of red. On warm days, you can dine al fresco.
Tonkotsu – With broth simmered for 18 hours, Tonkotsu’s ramen is a slurpable feast. We also like their gyoza.
