Daily Introductory Tour

This gallery hidden away on Finchley road is a great place to escape to. Each exhibit is carefully curated to bring the small space to life. The tours are small giving you the chance to ask as many questions as possible and really have a conversation about the art on show.

Lunchtime Lecture: Bronislava Nijinska

Fantastic! Lunch in the beautiful suntrap square at the heart of the building was surreal, like being on a Mediterranean holiday and or in another period of time... honestly felt blissful. The food absolutely worth paying for, because it IS as good as it looks....

Whats not to love. The collection is huge and beautiful. The quad outside is perfect for a picnic and my sons had a lovely time playing in the fountain. No queues to get in either so for me it is far superior to Natural History and Science Museums

Triumphs and Disasters at Christies

Ill always say that the V&A is my favourite Museum in London. I always rate it higher than the natural history museum and the collection of exhibits is fantastic. It has an influence to young children, adults, the elderly, students and everyone alike. Highly recommend a visit to this top location.

The V&A was our absolute favorite museum while visiting London. We went twice in our week there. Breathtakingly beautiful pieces. You can easily spend an entire day there. Gift shops and outdoor eating area were also wonderful!

Certainly the premiere museum of its kind featuring a fabulous courtyard for relaxing, splashing and eating, although the three rooms built to serve patrons of the first cafe as part of a museum are not to be missed! Their chocolate brownies are exceptional.

The Art of Museum Lighting

The museum is well laid out, with distinct areas for different themes/periods/countries etc. so you can easily find things that will interest you. They have a good number of visiting exhibitions too, so even if youve been five times youll find something new to see.

So much to see, and quite well curated. Layout wasnt cramped like British Museum. More thought was put into this place. Interactive stuff here and there - tried on a replica of a gauntlet, and a cloak. Wish I had spent more time here, like 2 days instead of 3 hours.
