Victoria and Albert Museum | Exploring London 

Exploring London, The Victoria And Albert Museum

Good evening you lovely people, a couple weeks ago I was exploring London. I had a couple afternoon meetings as well as a photoshoot. But due to my silly planning I actually had the wrong place for the meeting. So I had some extra time. I knew my parents were at the Victoria and Albert Museum, so I thought, “I’ll head over there, brush up on my knowledge of decorative arts.”

As I arrived there everything went wrong, from my mobile phone turning off and running out of battery, to not being able to find anyone. Eventually, I was able to cross my parents in the museum, then I could relax and then explore what the museum had to offer.

The museum is absolutely brilliant, there is such much to learn there. I unfortunately only had an afternoon there, but in that time I learnt so much. I could of easily spent a good day there… Writing, learning and photographing the whole place.

If you want a great day out in London, learning and seeing what London can offer in the educational and arts side, you need to head over to The Victoria And Albert Museum, exploring London is always fun and this way you gain a little useful knowledge.
