The V&A Museum  

I completely love the V&A Museum. When I was young and had lots of free time, I used to visit it on a Sunday to beat the single-girl blues. The huge variety of exhibits is what really excites me. Walking in to the Museum through the gorgeous stone columns from Cromwell Road still gives me goosebumps, even though I’ve done it (probably) hundreds of times.

The V&A Museum has been wowing global audiences since it opened in 1852 and now boasts over 19 million visitors each year. The architecture of the building, said to be one of the finest groups of Victorian buildings in Britain, is simply stunning.

We met here for our team Christmas party earlier in the month. After delish coffee under the original roof of the refectory (the first café ever in a museum) some of us wandered through the ball gown exhibition, in awe of the beautiful and tiny-waisted dresses. Others enjoyed the ‘light from the middle east’ photography exhibition. And several just ate cake!

The V&A is known as the world’s greatest museum of art and design. Little wonder with the diversity of exhibits, fabulous coffee and cake. If you have a spare hour in London over the Christmas break, I would recommend it. It will do nothing but delight.
