I made a special journey to this out of the way museum, and was not entirely thrilled with the Missoni Exhibtion. Whilst I appreciate that the focus of this museum is fashion AND textile, I would have liked to have seen way more of the fashion. There are many outfits on display, but in a pyramid arrangement reaching to the... More

Visited here and saw the Missoni fashion collection, I paid 9 pounds for entry but it was worth a look around. The colours and methods of knitting/patterns are beautifully designed. I was going to post images on here but think that is a spoiler and I think you have to see it for yourselves

Being involved in fashion this is one museum I enjoy going to. The Missoni exhibition is very good my only comment was it was hard to see some of the outfits towards the back and the lights were coming on and off a bit too quick. Had to be quick with the camera !! But it was lovely and I'm... More

My wife a keen sewing enthusiast was really looking forward to this visit ,after paying the £18 admission we went through 4 rooms with not much in them to ask where was all the rest ,only to be told we had seen it all ,we were back outside within 10 minutes both very dissappointed and very let down.

This is a great little museum for anyone interested in fashion or people who like to visit places usually skipped by the tourist hordes. Check their website for current exhibition information. The show through the 2016 summer is about the Missoni designers. What I especially liked is that the show focused on their creative inspiration rather than flashy fashion shows.... More

One room of a few dresses & £9 thank you very much - a real rip off! Please get someone to curate this properly!! For example the Valentino Exhibition.

Took my girlfriend to here as she is a textiles lover, fantastic museum, really brought a smile to her face and she does not usually smile when she sees exhibits.

It is Fantastic! I discovered this Museum three years ago and have been a regular visitor ever since. My favourite exhibitions were the Horrocks Dress displays, Knitwear and the recent Liberty Exhibitions. The work is displayed over two floors with an additional workspace/classroom - whoever curates this space is a genius. I attended a dressmaking workshop here that was brilliant.... More

The exhibits were interesting but it feels a little pricy for its size. I would give it a second though if I were to visit it again

Vis item with a friend. Took no more than 15minutes to get round. We both thought that there would be a lot more to it. We were expecting several floors of exhibits and both said 'is that it?' We thought there would be more. At £9 per person, we felt somewhat cheated. What we did see was good...but a surprisingly... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
