The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Knightsbridge
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 city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
How to get there

Visited for the Beatrix Potter exhibition. What a wonderful collection of items on display. Very well presented and lots of information attached with each piece. Seeing Peter rabbit brings out the inner child in all of us.

This museum is incredible. The Cast room is amazing but my favorite was to see all the fine jewels including the Londonberry Jewels and many others. I really enjoyed this and then had a nice spot of lunch in the courtyard watching kids play in the fountain.

Reading the descriptions we were not sure we wanted to go but annoyed we went when we didn't have enough time to do it justice. First, it is a FREE museum. And it is HUGE. Lots of neat stuff there. You could spend days!!!!

I really enjoyed this museum out of all the ones I visited in London. It is clean, really well spaced out, and has so many unique things to see. Especially if you love Theater, Design, Fashion, Jewelery - a must see!

This was our second visit to the V&A and we knew that we needed more time this time. We researched the areas we wanted to see and made sure we were there pretty much on opening time. Getting there is easy on the tube, there is plenty of information about what is on and free tours if you are not sure where to go. You either spend several days there or decide what you do want and not want to see and skip the rest. The meals at the cafe are excellent quality and there is a wide range.

Lovely morning walking around the huge collection. Disappointing we could not access the higher floors which were cordoned off with no explanation. Main cafe was a fantastic venue but limited menu and very overpriced. That might seem harsh given free entry to the museum but felt they had set the prices a little too high.

Very neat and the volunteers/workers were so passionate about the museum. There was so much to see and it was a great time. The gift shop was also a highlight!
