I have always wanted to visit the V&A and we finally got around to it last Saturday. It is quite an amazing place. It is packed full of interest - too much to take in over the space of a few hours. Next time I visit I will do my research first and concentrate on a particular field. Or better still, I will book a guided tour than follow up the particular areas that excite my curiosity. The building itself is architecturally beautiful both inside and out - the room currently containing the Raphael exhibits is stunning.
The cafe/restaurant was busy but there is adequate seating available. We had a snack that was certainly satisfactory. There were a lot of people there and Saturday must be a busy day for visiting; I guess that in the summer it could be overwhelming.
