This is a very tiny exhibition. We expected to be reminded of our youth through the Swinging 60's exhibition and displays of fashions of our era, but there was so little to see and what there was, was really pretty uninteresting. To spend an hour...More

As a fan of textiles, fashion and art I have been wanting to visit this museum since it opened. One visit later, and I doubt I'll be returning. As others have said, the museum is small, and has no permanent collection, so the entry price...More

Staying nearby, we made our first trip to the Fashion and Textile Museum, coinciding with the “Swinging London” exhibition which is centred around Mary Quant And Terence Conran. An impressive array of items have been put together to recreate the period. The gallery space is...More

Bermondsey is an intriguing place to explore before and after visiting the museum. We used our National Art Fund passes and enjoyed the small exhibition for half price, which made it better value. We went round in just over an hour but the displays and...More

Visited the museum in Bermondsey to see the Swinging 60s exhibition- lots to see and excellent curation with interesting background to the exhibits from Mary Quant, Terence Conrad and Laura Ashley. Worth a visit!

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

Thanks for the offer, but I have no interest in buying the fabric, try eBay perhaps.
