Private Victoria & Albert Museum Tour: Greatest Collection of Arts and Crafts
Your tour begins at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London’s Victorian centre of art and crafts created by the Royal Couple. It is now a museum of Arts and Crafts from all countries, styles and periods. Apart from the main collection of oil paintings and watercolours (with the emphasis on the British ones and a collection of Constable’s oil sketches), sculptures and architectural examples, the museum contains the world’s finest collection of applied arts such as weapons and armours, tapestries and carpets, jewellery and theatrical costumes and scenery, furniture and ceramics, fashion and modern design. Visit the famous Cartoons for tapestries which Raphael created for pope Leo X and the recently refurbished Renaissance and Medieval Galleries and the more recent Baroque Galleries.
