Astonishing breadth of collections from all corners of the globe and spanning the centuries from pre-history to the present day. We loved the fashions, the oriental collections from China and Japan, the jewellery, stained glass and silverware. There is so much to see, in a couple of hours we only scratched the surface but all that walking along long corridors... More

I went to a great 'Friday Late' - DJs in the inner courtyard and the entrance room provide a really cool vibe in a museum. The guide provided a fascinating talk about various sculptures and casts.

I was quite taken by the enormous carpet in this section (which is lit up for 10 minutes on the hour and half-hour) which is unspeakably beautiful!

There is so much to see here you are spoilt for choice. The building itself is fantastic, and you can have a good lunch, either informally or in the restaurant. Great day out.

I spent about 5 hours there and barely scratched the surface. The variety and depth to the collections is astonishing! Since I love history and art and fashion and textiles and jewels, etc. etc., what's not to like! I mean love! I paid to view a special exhibit on "Shoes, pleasure and pain" and it was very interesting, entertaining and... More

First visit to London & the V&A is one of the places I've wanted to visit. It was absolutely fantastic - so many beautiful & interesting things to see - we were in there for hours! It is a credit to London & England.

Took my nieces here to learn more about the Victorians and it was pretty helpful. Lots and lots of collections to see - particularly the eccentric dresses of the elite - well worth a look. Theres a fair amount of information as you walk around and it's well signed etc. The building itself is impressive too.

I went here on a recent trip to London. The building itself is amazing. I meant to look up it's history but never got around to it. But the architecture is fantastic. It's worth the trip over just to look at the detail on the building itself. Very cool.

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.
