We had a fantastic time travelling back through the 1960's - this exhibition is very well set out. The headphones give you all the music and info from the various years - changing as you move around, so you can move at your own pace. They advised that you need 2 hours, so we planned a late lunch afterwards -... More

Booked to see the So You Want A Revolution exihibition all about the 1960s. Great soundtrack on the free headsets as you walk around the exibition, which covers the music, fashions, consumerisms and politics of the flower power decade. But all was not love and peace - it was also a violent period. We stayed twice as long in the... More

After arriving in London and checking into our hotel we walke about a mile to the museum. The walk was very pleasant through Hyde Park. The museum has a wide variety of collections from all over the empire. The rooms are spacious and allow visitors to spend time without feeling crowded. Some wonderful modern blown glass as well. It's also... More

This was one our last tourist attractions on our visit to London. It turned out to be one of our favorites. The museum is a little more challenging to get to than some of the other museums. We took the train. There is a straight shot from the train station through a tunnel to the museum entrance. One of the... More

Have visited in the past and should have remembered how difficult it is to navigate this museum. We left early because of this. We did see the underwear exhibit which was very disjointed. The cafe was busy but did find a table for coffee The best part of this museum is the shop

As a Member, I attended to enjoy one of the free Members Tours which was well attended and split between 2 very knowledgable volunteers. We spent over an hour visiting various areas of this wonderful Museum set up by Prince Albert and it was so interesting that I want to go back for more. Really recommend this wonderful Museum, not...

At first I thought the exhibition prices were a little steep... but they are well worth the money. Brilliantly curated and so engaging I spent 4/5 hours there and could have stayed longer but the museum closed!

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.
