Finding the entrance on Sumner Street
Go to the Switch House entrance located on Sumner Street
The entrance is located on the south side of the building. You will see the Terrace bar and Terrace shop as you approach the entrance
From here there are lifts to all levels in the Switch House. Top tip! One side of the lifts (the left side) gets very busy. The opposite side (the right hand side) has lifts that only go to Level 4. These are quieter and if you get one of these lifts you can then take the stairs one floor up to Level 5, where Tate Exchange is.
