Other Information

  • The Tate Modern was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott who also designed Battersea Power Station.
  • It is 99m tall to the tip of the chimney and 200m long. The height was reduced so it would be shorter than the nearby St Paul's Cathedral.
  • The power station closed in 1981 following rising oil prices which had made it uneconomic. It was not until 2000 that it saw it coming into use again, this time as the Tate Modern Gallery.
