If you're interested in art and design, then you won't find a better place to wander around the many beautiful galleries. A few minutes walk from South Kensington tube, the first sight is of the imposing architecture. Again, like the major museums in London, it is far too large to really see all of it on one visit, so it's... More

we have visiting this museum on many occasion and we always find something of interest to see, so well set out such a lot of work goes into the displays. We will certainly keep visiting with all generations.

I recently visited here for the first time and was blown away by the displays that the museum had. I didn't realise that it was so big, and that they had so many different sections to the museum too. I could have easily spent all day here, and will definitely return when I got back to London to visit.

Hours of exquisitely beautiful paintings,sculptures,furniture,ceramics and much more to enjoy. The building and rooms themselves are impressive. We joined 3 of the hour long,free tours, which were all excellent; the guides offer extra insight into what is on display. Cafes offer delicious food in the middle price range. Loved the day spent at VAM!

My wife and i spent 6 hours in this amazing museum. The wealth of art and crafts on displayis truly astonishing. Set aside a whole day because the sheer volume of exhibits is overwhelming. The special exhibitions are also illuminating and interesting. A great visit for a rainy day

What a beautiful building this is and it's free to get in. Lots of history laid out over quite a few floors. All the displays were great and took me back in time. Bonus is the cafe they have as well. The shop inside was wonderful. Well worth it a visit.

Lovely day out - more than you can do in one day. Beautiful herbaceous borders, loved the glass houses and tree top walk. Orangery café food was very good.

Came here to visit the Alexander McQueen exhibition (incredible!) and we had time to look around the museum as well. Gorgeous building and there was so much to see. The shop was full of choice but was slightly expensive. The V&A is well worth a visit and I would recommend it to any age.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
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 city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
