Victoria & Albert Museum

The Victoria & Albert Museum is a must see. Filled with curios and decorative arts from around the world and spanning 2,000 years of culture, it makes for a fascinating and inspiring day out. Established in 1857 to support and celebrate British artisans, the museum has since accumulated an incredible collection and has expanded to become one of the largest museums in the world. It was named in honour of Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert because of their patronage, when they donated the museums' ornate facade in 1899. 

 

The V&A's permanent collection includes over 4.5 million objects, encompassing textiles, metalwork, glassware, pottery, sculpture, furniture, fashion, jewellery and paintings. It has an especially impressive collection of Islamic and Eastern arts, from Persian rugs to statuettes of Hindu Gods, and there are many strange and wonderful pieces in the museum including dresses made entirely of pins, memento mori cameos made of human hair, ornate gravestones and an articulated wooden tiger with a colonial British soldier in its mouth. 

 

The museum also holds many fascinating seasonal exhibitions, including much lauded fashion retrospectives, where Vivienne Westwood and Yojhi Yamamoto have been honoured; competitions for young designers to create new book covers, in conjunction with the Booker Prize; and even an exhibition where renowned British artists designed their perfect shed to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show, with intriguing results. When seasonal exhibitions are showing, visitors can attend talks and workshops relevant to the subject. These are often geared towards children and include events such as jewellery and mask making, so if you are travelling with children you should check the website to see if any events are running.

 

The V&A is also a resource for many up and coming designers and when visiting you will notice students wandering around with sketchbooks. The V&A has also been active in helping young designers to achieve their dreams by holding competitions in schools and colleges, and offers learning and residency programmes in their studios, where up and coming designers have access to all the museum's resources.

 

Admission to the museum is free, but for seasonal exhibitions you will need to purchase a ticket The V&A caters for disabled guests. The Museum contains a shop selling high-quality artisan wares and a cafe serving light refreshments, which may be required as there is a huge collection to wander around.

 

The museum is located just 5 minutes away from South Kensington tube on the Brompton Road, If you wish to stay locally and explore the area further, luxurious and well-renowned accommodation such as The Brompton Hotel, Harrington Court Serviced Apartments and The Gainsborough Hotel are all close by and offer a convenient place to stay. This may be advisable as the museum is huge and there is a great deal to see in the surrounding area. With many nooks and crannies filled with strange and wondrous things, the V&A will undoubtedly be the highlight of your Kensington stay.
