My favourite museum, the V&A. The Wedding Dresses is a wonderfully curated exhibition of wedding dresses throughout the ages, including the exquisite dress of Kate Moss; but there are always three or four fascinating exhibitions. The museum has a very wide range of permanent exhibits from all over the world. During school holidays there is a wide range of activities... More

Six of us had a 'girlie' trip to view the Wedding Dress exhibition - dresses through the ages from the 1720's to present. Not a very large exhibition but was very pleasant to wander around and reminisse. I did like the footage of the Queen Mothers wedding and our Queen's as well as Charles & Dianna's and William and Kate... More

This museum has some of the best treasures to view. One of the best museums we have ever seen. Bar far one of the best in London.

Beautiful museum, went during the day and again for one of the last Friday evening of the month events. The fashion section was my favorite, and the wedding dress exhibit (which you must pay for, 13 pounds or so I think) was SO worth it. Loved how close you could get to the dresses, well written and informational supplemental information... More

This museum, which is free to the public, houses many priceless collections that make it a must see attraction. There are awe inspiring exhibits of art work, textiles, jewelry etc from all over the world and from all time frames. It would take more than one day to see everything in this museum. There are also some special exhibits that... More

My second time at the V&A. There were approx 70 outfits in the exhibition. It took us about 2 hours to see the whole lot. It was just the right size, not too overwhelming. My favorite dresses belonged to Kate Moss and Lady Sarah Armstrong Jones. Of course there is so much else to see there. I like ti best... More

Too big and too complicated to understand. You would be lost in the museum and would not know which parts you should visit.

Make sure to have tea or lunch in the marvelous dining area where you will be able to enjoy the beautiful windows and architecture. Or take your lunch on the lawn when weather permits. Lots of changing exhibits and great permanent ones.
