1,246 reviews
Immerse yourself in Victorian London on this one-of-a-kind Jack the Ripper experience featuring RIPPER-VISION.™ Unlike other tours, your guide uses handheld projectors to accompany spine-chilling tales of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1800s. As you explore the dimly lit back streets of Whitechapel, images of Victorian London are projected onto buildings to guarantee a highly atmospheric experience. Plus, an evening departure time means you’ll experience London at its most mysterious.

Although the kimono exhibition was excellent the day was marred by discovering that that a much valued 12 month membership gift is not going to be extended. I cannot understand the rational behind this - it was for 12 months so why wouldn't a gallery extend it the time and the goodwill for another 5 months? I am so disappointed. The gallery was closed for 5 months a huge chunk of that time - I work full time so my visits have to work around that. The Christmas gift to me wasn't just a donation to the gallery, that would be something different, it feels like the V& A are not honouring a contract between me and them. I believe that the Tate Gallery is extending their memberships and the 2 organisations are funded in similar ways. They will miss out on future shopping and restaurant visits from me and guests now. I have always loved the V & A and feel let down by them.

Firstly we have to recognise that it's COVID time so some things are different to usual but I cannot understand why so much of the V and A was closed off. Two whole floors not open. All the leaflets about the exhibits had been removed, there were no maps and it was a real struggle to find anything. In addition because of the work being done to remodel you'd arrive at a staircase to find it was closed off meaning you have to retrace steps around this maze of a building to find another staircase and also meaning that on more than one occasion you end up starting a collection at the wrong end. Children had paper maps, why can't the adults? Why can't the volunteers hand out paper information sheets about collections? Yes I am a aware there is an app but it was pretty poor and unhelpful as it needed to be enlarged to see anything. As expected the cafe was gold plated prices - 2 coffees a bottle of water and a scone was £21. Outside the cost of some people's weekly food shop. Finally when we booked on line we hold have been informed that there were no locker or cloakroom facilities (other places are still offering this) and that floors are closed. It's the V and A so of course it was good but C+ and not A* this time.

Overall excellent but a lot of the smaller galleries like the furniture gallery, for example, were closed. Do check first if there is something specific you would like to see and download a map at home as the printed ones for £1 have been withdrawn due to Covid. The staff were friendly and the cafe set up in what used to be the entrance hall, served a delicious cheese and red pepper baguette. I enjoyed my visit very much, especially to the jewellery gallery. Look out for the necklace made out of bits of clay pipe, recovered by mudlarking on the Thames foreshore.

Kimono Exhibition A really first class showing. Unbelievable colours. Appreciate space was at a premium but just a pity some seating could not have been made available, as with other showings.

Went to see the Kimono: Kayoto to Catwalk experience, which was beautifully displayed and explained. As always we love the shop and purchased a few Christmas pressies as well.
