Visiting the Switch House at the Tate Modern

Even if you are not a fan of modern art, I recommend that you visit the viewing balcony on the 10th floor of the Tate Modern’s Switch Tower for some great views of the London skyline.

On the way down from the 10th floor of the Switch House, I stopped at the Artist Rooms to see the Louise Bourgeois exhibition, which runs until June 2017.
