Seasonal offerings & online advent calendar

Tuesday - Saturday: 10:00 - 17:00 | Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays: 12:00 - 17:00
Closed 24th December to 27th December 2021 and 31st December 2021 to 1st January 2022 inclusive closed Gallery closures and collection updates

Treat yourself to some culture, music, seasonal shopping, food and drink this December, with four free exhibitions on show including our major exhibition on illuminated manuscripts – COLOUR, and a Christmas concert on 16 December. Plus, unique gifts in our shop and festive treats in the Café, including mince pies, stollen, Tate roasted coffee, hot chocolate and a range of Jing teas to warm up.

To mark the count down to this year’s seasonal celebrations, we have created an animated advent calendar. Doors will be opened from the beginning of December on Facebook and Twitter to reveal festive scenes in our collection. And at the beginning of each week we will post a picture of the previous weeks opened doors, so you can see ‘at a glance’ what you may have missed.
