Victoria & Albert Museum Tour

Visit the Victoria & Albert (V&A) Museum in London – the world’s leading museum of art and design

A Victoria & Albert Museum Tour is unmissable because…

London is the design capital of the world and the Victoria & Albert is the world’s leading museum for art & design. Founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert, there’s no easy way to summarise a collection which spans 2,000 years and whose highlights range from the notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci to a bed that sleeps 8 people. It is quite simply an enormous, eclectic and fascinating treasure house of works by some of the best artists and designers the world has known.
