Steve McQueen is back with a major new artwork at Tate Britain, Year 3, featuring over 3,000 photographs showing more than 76,000 of London’s year 3 pupils. The exhibition runs until 3 May 2020and schools can enjoy an enhanced experience of visiting Year 3 with discount travel from Thames Clippers.
Catching a Thames Clippers boat to and from the exhibition is perfect for a school trip – providing children with entertainment from the moment you leave the pier with stunning views of the capital while you travel.
To celebrate McQueen’s ambitious portrait of the future, Thames Clippers is offering discounts for school groups to and from Tate Britain (Millbank Pier). Groups of 10 or more school children visiting Year 3 can receive a special 15% discount on Single, Return and River Roamer (hop-on, hop-off) tickets. School groups simply need to ensure that they get in touch at least two weeks prior to the intended date of travel.
Thames Clippers can take you directly to Millbank Pier, which is just across the street from the gallery’s front door. Millbank Pier is served by two Thames Clippers services, RB2 and RB6, making it easy for schools across London to visit and appreciate the exhibition as well as everything else Tate Britain has to offer - which includes free collection displays of work by hundreds of Britain’s greatest artists. Groups needing to cross London from the east for Tate Britain should consider River Bus travel from North Greenwich Pier, where free coach parking is offered with Thames Clippers’ travel.
