The Tate gallery is built on Porthmeor beach on the site of the old gas works, the shape of the building echoes it's old use. Porthmeor beach area has an industrial past as an area of fish stores and net lofts, now these buildings are used for artists studios. The beach itself became popular in the 70's and is the main surfing beach in the town, providing a contrast to it's genteel neighbour the Porthminster Beach which being close to the station was popular from the Victorian times.
