Walk and wonder through room after wonderful room. As with all London's special galleries you should take a break and enjoy lunch. Especially here you should book the delightful dining room.

At first, I did not like the museum; when we visited it with my family and friends I thought it too chaotic, too many different expositions (antiquities, costumes, jewelry, furniture, etc) put together in one building. Now, when I analyze the pictures taken, I see...More

Hands down one of my favorite museums to visit. The history of design, materials on other interesting stuff. Plus, the rotating exhibits are always fun to see. A year ago, I went to the museum to experience the Pink Floyd exhibit...incredible!!

Great place just to wander, choose the less popular galleries higher in the building for a more peaceful experience. It's a place you can never tire of and the cafe is great but pricey. Avoid again the obvious times. Lovely to sit in the central...More

We spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon rambling through the V&A. Our favorite exhibit was the Beatrix Potter sketches. Simply marvelous.

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this

I booked through the V and a website but I think the exhibition is totally sold out. The only way to see it now would be to join the V and A and go as a Friend.
