What to Expect
The V&A is the world’s largest museum of design and decorative arts. It is located in the fashionable district of South Kensington, close to other museums, Kensington Gardens and Hyde park. Knightsbridge and Harrods are a short walk away. The nearest underground station is South Kensington on the District and Circle line.

Founded one hundred and fifty years ago by Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert, this museum now houses over 4 million objects from around the world.

Photographs, textiles, theatre, architecture, jewellery, tapestries, sculpture, fashion, Islamic art, ceramics, Indian galleries, miniatures, costumes, Japanese art, Asian art and glass are just some of the fabulous exhibits on display.

Visitors will see the vast Medieval and Renaissance galleries, the new Islamic galleries showing the largest carpet created in Ardabil in the 16th century, and which is displayed for just a few minutes each half hour to preserve its colours, and a wealth of ceramics and lacquer work and swords in the Japanese galleries. The plaster cast of world famous Michelangelo’s David is also here.

The Fashion galleries from the 18th century to the present day shows the art and talent of designers such as Worth and Chanel.

Another highlight is the British Galleries, where the Great Bed of Ware once housed 26 people!.You will see the costume an English King wore for his wedding, reputed to be the forerunner of the three piece suit, as well as theatre and performance costumes, worn by Richard Burton, Vivien Leigh and even Mick Jagger.
