I forget just how beautiful London’s architecture is sometimes. This is fast becoming a typical Sunday hang-out spot as its literary next door to the church I go to. In order to avoid the rain when walking to and from Church from South Kensington Station, I usually have to take to the tunnels that led right into Victoria and Albert Museum then a few steps into Church.
This is one of the busiest museums in the London but you can still find a little respite in the John Madejski Garden. Named so as £2 million was donated by John Madejski to the museum to design a stylish new courtyard for people to meet and provide a central point to explore the museum.
The beautiful garden leads to my little Sunday brunch spot. The Gamble and Poynter Rooms. This is where the cafe is located, the original refreshment room which formed the first museum restaurant in the world. It’s usually busy inside but when the sun is shining you most likely want to be enjoying your meal out on the seats outside or spread across the lawn.
It is simply beautiful whether you are dining here during the day or night when its all lit up. You can spend the whole day here easily. Look at just how stunning the architecture is, let alone the art that is within the walls all the museum. Perfect for those stay in nearby hotels too.
Nearest Station to V&A Museum is: South Kensington
My god I LOVE that architecture, what a stunning place to stop for a bit of lunch!
It definitely is. An everyday reminder to stop trying to escape London as it is just as beautiful as most place we are trying to escape to.
Wow, hard to beat that place for a lunch stop.
The food looks amazing, and so do the buildings! 🙂
Beautiful pictures Bianca, sounds like a wonderful day! 🙂
What a lovely place to brunch! And the details in the architecture! Divine!
