I'll be keeping a beady eye on you this summer.

From my perch high above the Thames on the Tate Modern London chimney I'll also be keeping an eye out for my dinner.

And when I spot it, you'll see what all the fuss is about.

Us peregrines can reach the breathtaking speed of 200 mph while chasing our lunch through the air.

Friendly helpers with telescopes will give you the best views of us, plus tell you all about how we are adapting to city life.

It's free to see us - come along, join in and immerse yourself in unexpected wonders of nature in the heart of the city.

Visitor comments

Wow, wonderful, must ring my husband and tell him what he’s missing!!


Terrific concept to demonstrate wildlife in London – quite a surprise!


Made our day.


Great stuff! My 11-year old students loved it!


When can you see us?

Friendly staff and volunteers will be at the viewpoint every Thursday to Sunday plus August bank holiday Monday, from 11am - 4pm.

What's at the site?

Tate Modern London cafes, Southbank cafes and public conveniences are all close by.

How to find us

We will be by the Millennium Bridge on the South bank of the Thames, opposite the Tate Modern tower itself.
