In short, there is a stunning and wide collection of artistic work on display Tate Britain is a gallery which will manage to please nearly all visitors.

If you're interested in art, the website is well worth a visit:
Of course, images on computer screens are not the same as the real thing if you are visiting London and like art, Tate Britain is 'must see' for your list.
If you can't manage a visit, one of their latest developments is a good second best a rolling slideshow of some of their best works:
Still in beta version, it will no doubt be improved, but even in beta it has some great images. Enjoy!
I wanted to pick a unique site for my first review EVER (on here, lol), so I picked "How It Is", which is a project created by UK's Miroslaw Balka. Though I really like the site, it is difficult to explain. Basically, it's a type of art project Balka created, It takes you to this black, interactive, borderline scary "cave", and you navigate through it with the mouse. There are many strange things to come upon. Things that again, I cannot explain. It's just something you have to see for yourself. I gave it four stars because it is engaging and kept me interested for a while. I actually didn't finish going through the whole thing in one sitting because it was nighttime and it was starting to freak me out a bit lol. The site insists that you wear headphones, and I figured out why! Strange, intriguing, different, interactive, unexplainable art. Somewhat like a game, only...not. Some parts are somewhat disturbing in a sense, but that's just my opinion. Go see for yourself.
