The free galleries at the Tate Britain gallery on Millbank are filled with wondrous things, from the seductive 19th-century landscape paintings by J.M.W. Turner to the eye-popping “Drawing for Free Thinking” by contemporary artist David Tremlett that wraps around the Manton stairwell

The galleries open at 10 a.m. on Sundays, and if you arrive early you’ll have some quiet time to view the works. When you tire, head to the Millbank Cafe (located in a temporary space though October when new facilities are scheduled to open) for coffee or tea, pastries, and hot and cold seasonal dishes. If you’re feeling ambitious, hop on the Tate Boat that runs every 40 minutes along the Thames between the Tate Britain and the Tate Modern.
