About The V&A:

Always free to visit, The V&A is a great museum of art & design, and holds over 3000 years worth of artifacts from many of the world's richest cultures, including the most comprehensive collection of British design & art from 1500 to 1900. There's furniture, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and much more.

While I had always thought of the V&A as a more mature destination and not overtly for families, a trip with my young daughter proved me wrong as she loved the place! There are Gallery Backpacks to borrow for free every day plus weekend and holiday time workshops for a variety of ages (and not just for kids).
