Once was not enough - If you are even the slightest interested in design, visual arts or related areas, do not miss the V&A. We had to return for a second trip later in our London week as the beauty and intricacies of the objects compelled further examination. Lots of recent technological history on display as well. Very well done.

A good place to visit on weekends. - A great place to get to know about cultures from all over the world. There is no free tap water. The water is a little bit expensive costing 2 pounds per bottle. There is a wonderful pool where children can play. Good vibes there.

Fun museum to explore - A huge museum with so many interesting galleries. We also enjoyed a sandwich and seat in the courtyard on a lovely day. So much to see--impossible in one trip. Free admission. Take advantage of the free offered tours each day. Nice offerings in the museum gift shop. I got several items to take home as gifts.
