As Tate London was a gift to the nation by Liverpool sugar magnate, Sir Henry Tate, it is appropriate the the first Tate gallery outside London was built in his home town.
The gallery stands on the corner of the historic waterfront and Albert Dock. It displays contemporary and modern art from 1900 to the present day including photography, printmaking, performance, paintings and sculpture. Tate Liverpool is one of the main venues for the Liverpool Biennial http://www.biennial.com/ , the UK’s largest festival of contemporary visual art.
Entrance to the Tate is free and it is open daily 10 am – 5pm. There is a cafe.
