Spent too much time in one section, we didn't manage to see everything we intended to. We had list of items we wanted to see but didn't manage it. Didn't realize there was a courtyard with paddling pool, everyone relaxing there eating lunch, looked lovely.

I’ve been to the V&A on countless occasions, the paid exhibitions are always beautifully curated as is the permanent collection. Hours pass in minutes. Past highlights for me include a visit to the very seldom open to the public loft accessed by a hidden staircase....More

Even with Flu I went to the Frida Kahlo exhibition today. Spent an hour there. Gradually I kept thinking I wonder what Frida Kahlo would have thought of it. Atmosphere wise it was dark tomblike, to many people on top of each other, the most...More

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

10.45 on a Monday morning. It was not overcrowded. Quite civilised and they were holding back people who were trying to get in early. I would say early on a weekday.
