The Victoria and Albert Museum is beyond wonderful.
This Romanesque Tabernacle was crafted by German goldsmiths and carvers around 1180.
There are several rooms with dazzling reproductions of Medieval, Renaissance and even earlier works cast in the late 1800s after government funds were set aside for preservation
of important art that was felt to be at risk of being damaged or destroyed.
And, lunch from the V&A cafe can be enjoyed outside with a view of a wonderful wading pool.
Did you go to London if you didn't stop in at Harrods to savor the luxury? I left empty-handed.
All this is tiring, so for a couple of pounds a canvas seat can be rented in Hyde Park
with a view of the Serpentine. Good people watching.
Thanks for this tour, Jack!
Hope you have time for a pint in an old pub!
Oh my, I'm loving your tour around my favorite city. I usually end up at the chocolate counter at Harrods.
The tabernacle is amazing!
Glad you got to the V&A, one of the real treasures of this country.
I agree with William Kendall, the goldsmith's work is amazing. Looks like London is a good time.
I think I should have stopped by while I was close. Looks wonderful!
The V&A is wonderful. Even in the heat.
