Description

Your 3 hour tour accompanied by your art historian guides begins at the main entrance to the V&A Museum in Cromwell Road at 10 am or 2 pm. This is London’s Victorian centre of Art and Crafts dedicated to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The main collection is of oil paintings and water colours (famous for Constable’s oil sketches), sculpture and architectural samples and the World’s finest collection of applied arts such as silver, jewellery, bronzes and carpets, armours and tapestries, theatrical costumes etc.

This 3 hour private walking tour will be guided for the first 1.1/2 hours by a scholar, a voluntary internal member of the V&A Museum who will present the unique and varied Departments of the Museum starting from early Medieval times arriving at the most contemporary output of modern art and design. After a 15 minute interval with a coffee offered by the guide, this will be followed by an hour with a classical art historian who will visit the Raphael cartoons and the Museum’s recently refurbished Renaissance and Baroque Galleries.
Here in the Renaissance Galleries is the largest collection of Donatello’s sculptures outside Italy, plus Michelangelo’s and Leonardo’s sketches, furniture, ironwork, floor tiles and ornaments. In the Baroque Galleries, recently opened, you will admire an amazing array of art treasures from Italy, Belgium, Germany and France.
In leaving the V&A Museum you will share not only England’s fascination with the Arts and Craftsmanship of those amazing artworks but you will have lived through their creation.
