Tate Modern: The Tanks A dramatic new development at Tate Modern, we got our first glimpse inside The Tanks in summer 2012 - revealed as part of the Cultural Olympiad in the 2012 Olympics - before they were fully opened to the public in summer 2016. The giant underground chambers, previously used to store a million gallons of oil, now host new audio works, installations and film installations as well as performance art. The striking extension, which cost £215 million, consists of two large circular spaces for performances and film installations, and smaller rooms which retain the smell of their industrial past. There's a room dedicated to Louise Bourgeois, a ground floor cafe and a restaurant. All very impressive. But the crowning glory is the free open air viewing platform on the top floor. Views over St Paul's, the Shard, River Thames and Millennium Bridge compete with those into neighbouring luxury apartments. Obey the signs saying 'respect the privacy of our neighbours', if you can.
