Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s finest decorative arts museum was founded in 1852. These days, over 150 galleries contain some of the most superb pieces of furniture, sculpture, jewellery and ceramics from the past seven centuries. Highlights include the seven Raphael Cartoons painted as prototypes for the Sistine Chapel, Catherine the Great’s diamonds, and the world’s finest floor covering, the Ardabil carpet. For a museum that acts as a historical archive, the V&A never fails to stay up-to-date. Recent blockbuster exhibitions have included the first ever survey of Postmodernism and a showcase of Vivienne Westwood. You can pick up limited edition jewellery and gifts in the excellent shop - in fact, to get to the exhibitions, you won’t be able to avoid it!
