Pimlico tube station, London
Guided by Matthew
This tour – guided by the art historian and historical novelist Dr Matthew Plampin – offers a comprehensive exploration of the original Tate Gallery, with its wealth of masterpieces from the Victorian and Georgian eras – from Hogarth to Millais, Gainsborough to Burne-Jones. It includes the story of its foundation and the grand building that houses it, and a stroll through the unrivalled collection of works by J M W Turner on display in the Clore Gallery.
The Tate Britain Tour takes place at 10 am on xxxxxxxxx. The meeting point is just outside the Tate Gallery exit of PimlicoTube.
The Tate Britain Tour is guided by the art historian and historical novelist Dr Matthew Plampin. Matthew has a PhD from the Courtauld Institute of Art and has had four novels released by a major UK publisher, with a fifth – ‘Mrs Whistler’ – out this year.

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Tate Britain do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Tate Britain Tour – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.
A private London Walk makes a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
