From Elizabethan Portraits to the Latest Contemporary Works: Tate Britain, The Forgotten Event Space
With the Tate Modern taking centre stage as a sleek and contemporary entertaining space, the Tate Britain is sadly sometimes forgotten even though it has much to offer.
Giving its guests stunning views of the London skyline, showing off its world renowned international modern art, and being one of London’s most recognisable and best loved buildings; the Tate Modern usually outshines its older brother, the Tate Britain.
Home to the greatest collection of British art in the world, Tate Britain is one of London’s most architecturally rich venues. This Grade II* listed building offers diverse entertaining spaces, ranging from classical and formal to contemporary galleries.
It has spaces like Gallery 9 (main picture), a beautifully proportioned Victorian gallery displaying magnificent British Romantic Paintings from the Tate collection.
An impressive and imposing space, this gallery creates a spectacular atmosphere for any event, allowing guests to be entertained in the company of great artists such as JMW Turner, John Martin and Francis Danby.
Grade II Listed
If the imposing nature of the Victorian gallery is too much, The Sackler Octagon, a magnificent architectural space in the heart of the Duveen Galleries, or The Manton Foyer with its beautiful Italian limestone floor and glass atrium can offer more contemporary feeling spaces within this iconic Grade II* listed building.
There are also spaces available for smaller events such as presentations or private dinners. The Grand Saloon & The Duffield Room both cater to much more intimate gatherings.
The Grand Saloon is a room which encapsulates Tate Britain’s elegance with its domed windows facing the river, spectacular high ceiling and unique floor restored to its original 1920’s inspired design; whilst The Duffield Room is bright, contemporary and perfect for meetings or presentations.

If all of this still hasn’t convinced you, by hosting your event and enjoying all the Tate Britain’s unique spaces whilst surrounded by some of the greatest and historic artworks in the world, all the revenue raised by events at Tate Britain helps secure the Tate’s collections for generations to come.
