There is a red velvet Christmas tree in the Victoria & Albert Museum, with antlers sticking out of the branches.
The Victoria & Albert Museum is one of the group of museums which make South Kensington such a fascinating place to visit. It may even be “the world’s greatest museum of art and design”.
On my visits I have been overwhelmed by the wide range of their collections of ceramics, furniture, clothes, sculpture, paintings – and I’ve just seen a report of their acquisition of false eyelashes from Katy Perry’s range. So it’s probably best to concentrate on one area that interests you – or one of their special exhibitions like the current one on Masterpieces of Chinese Painting.
