Event description

Description

Friday 30 November 2018 – British Art and Design at the V&A

The V&A is the world’s leading museum of art and design, full of priceless textiles, paintings, sculpture, metalwork and architecture.

In this tour we will follow the development of British art and design from 1500 to 1900 displayed in wonderfully recreated rooms, from the parlour of an 18th century London townhouse to a tiny Gothic study. We will admire treasures such as the Great Bed of Ware as mentioned by Shakespeare, embroidery done by a queen, a Robert Adam ceiling, interiors from the Houses of Parliament and wallpaper and fabrics designed by William Morris.

Meet at 6pm inside the main entrance from Cromwell Rd

Post-tour drinks in the V&A café bar, one of the highlights of the museum in its own right!
