As a museum of “stuff the empire stole from the world,” this is hard to beat. It appears throughout A.S. Byatt’s novel The Children’s Book, which is set in Edwardian London and which describes the ceramics in Rooms 140-146 in luscious, sumptuous detail. The museum always has that former empire vibe for me. The scones with cream and jam are pretty great in the downstairs cafe, which also feels very E.M. Forster. If you know a member, or decide to become one, you also get access to an amazing secret cafe hidden at the back of the glass collection.
Great exhibitions, children’s activities, garden, café and just about the best museum of decorative art in the world!
Free entry for all. Great if you like decorative arts, fashion and design. They often have interesting temporary exhibition (with a fee).
23 minutes away via the tube. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London is the world's largest museum of applied arts, decorative arts, and design, housing a permanent collection of over 2.27 million objects. It was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Amazing free entry museum and historic architectural building in South Kensington. Only a 25 minute tube ride from the flat. Also worth popping to the Natural History Museum next door!
My favourite museum. The V&A focuses on art and design and has a huge public display (free to visit) as well as fantastic exhibitions (ticketed). The museum houses a permanent collection of over 2.27 million objects and it was founded in 1852 and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
