We’re in the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A for short), which was originally set up (you guessed it) by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to house the decorative arts collection of the realm. Like the British Museum (and the Natural History and the Tate Galleries, to name a few) they are absolutely free to visit.
The museum is housed in a grand old building, and its foyer was lovely to sit in.
Around the corner, we bump into, once again, this lady. This time she is a copy, not the real thing as in the British Museum.
