Disabled Access at the Tate Modern museum
The Tate Modern has a large collection of modern, abstract, surreal, and pop art. It’s located on the south side of the river across from St. Paul’s Cathedral. If you’re a fan of modern art you should visit, otherwise spend more time at the National Gallery. There are step-free entrances on the east and north (river) sides of the building.
