Description

Tate Modern, Britain's national museum of modern and contemporary art is located on the banks of the Thames River. Housed in the former Bankside Power Station, the remarkable Turbine Hall is a vast and iconic space known for large-scale sculpture and site-specific installation art, which runs the length of the entire building.

The Turbine Hall has hosted some of the world’s most memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art, including; Cézanne, Bonnard, Matisse, Picasso, Rothko, Dalí, Pollock, Warhol and Bourgeois. The way artists have interpreted this space has transformed public perceptions of contemporary art in the twenty-first century. Enjoy a privately-guided tour of either the collection highlights or a special exhibition of your choice.

Following the contemporary art tour, discover London's ground-breaking contemporary dining scene at nearby Michelin-starred masterpiece, Restaurant Story. Headed up by Chef Tom Sellers - who honed his craft in the world-renowned kitchens of Noma and Per Se - Story was awarded its coveted Michelin star within just five months of opening in April 2013.

The premise of the restaurant is to tell their story through the food they serve; using sight, smell and taste to take diners on a culinary journey inspired by Sellers’ career and the history of British food. Lauded by The Telegraph's Zoe Williams for a menu which "puts the epic into epicurean", the team at Restaurant Story use the freshest seasonal produce to create a groundbreaking and novel dining experience.

Guests can look forward to a 'Four Chapter' premium lunch menu, which spans multiple courses across a range of themes such as 'childhood', 'land' and 'sea'. Seasonally-changing dishes regularly featuring on the menu include Story's signature bread and dripping; potato and coal; and almond and dill to finish.

Sample 'Four Chapter' Premium Lunch Menu:

  • Foreword Snacks
  • Chapter I, Childhood:
    Bread and dripping;
    Onion and gin
  • Chapter II, Sea:
    Razor clam;
    Scallops
  • Chapter III, Land:
    Potato and coal;
    Venison
  • Chapter IV, The End:
    Candy floss;
    Almond and dill
