Tate Liverpool, as seen from Albert Dock, courtesy of the venue

This northern outpost of arguably Britain’s most important arts institution opened at Liverpool’s Albert Dock in 1988. Tate Liverpool is housed inside a Grade I-listed former warehouse, a redbrick beauty designed by Jesse Hartley in 1840 that was once an integral part of Liverpool’s gargantuan port industry. The warehouse was converted into a gallery by architect James Stirling; it now has four floors dedicated to modern and contemporary visual art. Exhibitions are drawn from the Tate’s enviable collection; these longer-running shows sit alongside a regularly changing programme of temporary exhibitions (often blockbuster shows, such as 2012′s Turner, Monet, Twombly exhibition). An impressive programme of events for adults and kids, plus decent ground-floor cafe and excellent shop make this one of the highlights of any visit to Liverpool.
