The Victoria and Albert Museum is fantastic with many interesting things to see, however the cafe is staffed by people who are surly and obviously don’t enjoy their work. They are slow to serve and have no welcoming in their manner at all. On asking...More

Great collection strategically laid out so walking through and around them is lovely a great place to spend an afternoon. The ground floor main rooms can get busy but there are less busy rooms all over the museums where one can escape to.

Came here on a Saturday morning so quite busy. Definitely get yourself a map to ensure you do not miss anything. It is free to visit although they ask for £1 donation for the map. Has a very nice shop.

This museum has a great collection of widely varying items. There are antiquities, fashion, and everything in between. There is also a nice gift shop and cafe. A popular spot that can get crowded. Recommended !

This exhibit was more than I expected - well put together, thoughtful, positive, creative and hard hitting. I think it is one of the most under rated exhibitions of 2018 and look forward to them doing more like this. Truthfully though they ALWAYS hit the...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

The V&A website has a really great ‘plan a visit’ page. It clearly states there is a cloakroom and it will £5 for large luggage. Enjoy the visit.
