Victoria and Albert Museum

The home of decorative arts boasts millions of objects and some of the finest pieces of furniture, jewellery and ceramics, to name but a few. It is the largest of its kind in the world and has become one of the most visited and respected museums in London. The Victoria Albert and Museum spans across 5,000 years of human life right through to the present day, telling the story of art and design through the centuries.

The museum is named after Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, and was opened in 1852, ten years before his passing. Known simply as ‘the V&A’ it was built to promote the history of design, seeking influence and inspiration from all around the world. This covers every aspect of architecture imaginable, from fashion, textiles, sculpture, building, theatre and much more.
