Tate Britain

In 1892 the site of a former prison, the Millbank Penitentiary, was chosen for the new National Gallery of British Art, which would be under the Directorship of the National Gallery at Trafalgar Square. In 1932, the gallery officially adopted the name Tate Gallery and became wholly independent from the National Gallery in 1955. Tate Britain is one of the four Tate galleries.
