Both Tate Britain and Tate Modern actively participated in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
A Union Flag was displayed at Tate Britain on the existing flag pole. There is no flag pole at Tate Modern, and therefore no Union Flag was displayed.
Tate Modern welcomed visitors, making its landscape available for a giant screen and for the BBC to park its outside broadcast vehicles. It also provided a balcony for international film crews.
The restaurant, a private room and all the balconies were open to visitors who arrived early. As a result of this, hundreds of members of the public were able to take advantage of exceptional views of the river flotilla procession.
