The best way to discover British Art in London is to visit the Tate Britain, the oldest gallery in town, opened in 1897. Its collection offers a retrospective of British art from 1500 to the present day. As such, it is the most comprehensive collection of its kind in the world. Among all the famous English artists, it houses a substantial collection of the works of J. M. W. Turner.
The museum is still located in the Tate's original premises on Millbank on the site of Millbank Prison. Named National Gallery of British Art, it became commonly known as the Tate Gallery, after its founder Sir Henry Tate.
The gallery houses and displays both British and Modern collections, but was renamed "Tate Britain" in March 2000, before the launch of Tate Modern, which is dedicated itself to the display of historical and contemporary British art only.
The gallery organises career retrospectives of British artists and temporary major exhibitions of British Art. The Tate Britain hosts the annual and usually controversial Turner Prize exhibition.
