    The Tate Modern is a must-visit for any modern art fan, but a fun thing to make sure you won't miss is the mist performance art near the Switch House.

    building is amazing, views specially the 360 one from top floor. Check exhibits before you go sometimes they can be a little frustrating or too conceptual for some. 1 of my favorite museums in tow.
