The Tate Modern is…

• Situated on a 3.43 hectare (8.48 acre) site on the south side of the River Thames opposite St Paul's Cathedral
• A structure with a frontage over 200m (650 ft) long
• Blessed with a chimney 99m (325 ft) in height, specifically built to be lower than the dome of St Paul's Cathedral at 114m (375 ft)
• Composed of approximately 4.2 million bricks
• Made in Scotland From Girders (see pic above)

(The first four facts in this list appear on the Tate Modern’s website)
