Could spend more days & days at the V & A as it is has so many different exhibits and all presented in an excellent way. Loved the silver room and the marble statues.

If you can get tickets ......and are any where near the V&A in July this is a must see exhibition. The staging of the dresses and accessories is extraordinary, theatrical and at times we felt we were in a living breathing Doctor Who set. The story behind McQueens life and inspiration is a little sporadic and disjointed, you would need... More

The V & A is a wonderful museum but Alexander McQueen "Savage Beauty" is the most amazing exhibition that I have ever seen ! The clothes and accessories are incredible and the displaying of them takes your breath away !! So much thought has been put into this exhibition which seems to go on and on - certainly worth every... More

Whenever I return to the V and A there is something interesting and exciting to see. I always visit the scrumptious jewelry display and wish that copies of some of the items were available in the shop. The Alexander McQueen and the Shoes exhibitions were worth visiting - if only they would put the information at a higher level as... More

The V&A museum is one of the most beautiful museums I have ever seen. The exhibits are fantastic. The building itself is amazing along with the beautiful courtyard. I would recommend this to anyone who visits London. I still can't get over the food area, it was just beautiful.

Far too much to take in in one visit. The rambling galleries have priceless and fascinating works of art at every turn that would be the centrepiece of many museums. Best to wander on a whim but don't miss the plaster-cast rooms or the jewellery and gemstone gallery.

I went to see the Alexander McQueen exhibition and was totally blown away by it. It's beautifully staged and the creations are almost like scuptures I can't praise it enough and already want to go again.

I loved, loved, loved this museum. Everything was organized well. My favorite part was the plaster/cast room. It is a huge museum so be sure to dedicate at least a day to seeing it.

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.
