The Alexander McQueen exhibition is spectacular and it ends this week. If you miss it you will regret it as I have been told it is not going on tour. This maybe the only time you will ever have the opportunity to see these garments close up. Get there fast.

We visited the V & A on a wet day and found the tunnel between South Kensington tube and the museum a great way to keep dry. The sculpture exhibits cove a wide range of dates and are magnificent. The silverware collection is wonderful and contains some bizarre items which add interest. The restaurant was a little disappointing with a... More

Visited on a wet Sunday in late July, queuing to get in but worth waiting for. Need to allow quite a few hours to see everything or plan your visit beforehand. Cafe in courtyard was overwhelmed by numbers of visitors and expensive.

This Museum is a must for anyone visiting London. There is so much to see and hours can be spent visiting the different sections. Do Allow as much time as you can....the wonders of the World are within these walls.

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.
