On Wednesday I took a train trip to London to attend a Press/Blogger Event (more on that in another post). Despite only having a spare couple of hours before the event, I still managed to squeeze in a very fleeting visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum. Probably my most favourite museum, it had been a few years since my last visit and although there weren't any specific exhibitions on, I decided that I was long overdue a return anyway. As usual, I misjudged how long it takes to get anywhere in London, so by the time I got there and had a bite to eat, there was only really time for a walk around the ground floor and a quick browse in the gift shop. Next time, I will dedicate a day to all of the museums around the area which are in such close proximity of one another. Hopefully then there will be an amazing fashion exhibition on too!

  1. Gosh I haven't been there in years one of the things I miss most about living in the city is that if I have nothing to do I can just go spend the day wandering round museums xoxo

  4. Oh I adore the V&A, I'm impressed that you managed to visit before the event! I love that chandelier and I can't wait for the fashion exhibits to reopen again, will be good to see more of the fashion that they have in storage out on show!

  14. That massivle, sea inspired glass piece by Chihuly is absolutely amazing. I went to see an exhibition by him in the Halcyon gallery in London the other week. Mesmerizing!

  17. Ah, I love the V&A! I went to college in London for a little while, and took a Renaissance art class that met in the V&A every week. Your photographs made me very nostalgic. Beautiful work!
