The shop has lovely, helpful and chatty staff. I love to pick up a few postcards and see what small knick-knacks they have. There's always something a bit unique on offer here and over the years I have bought all sorts of things, fabric shopping bags, interesting books - not just about their exhibitions, brooches, sewing scissors, pocket mirrors... I can't recommend it enough for small gifts...more

REVIEW OF MUSEUM, including shops

Lovely garden dining area (and good food!) and phenomenal collection of design items, old and new, art, and rotating exhibitions (tho must admit I was not interested in the one on Alexander McQueen, which was open for 24 hours on the last day).

Lovely, if...more

One of the best museum shops around! If you're looking for something arty or for anything fiber-related, this is the place. Always better than typical museum shop fare, the V&A usually have at one exclusive line of items (fabrics, haberdashery, books, etc. etc.).more

I love this shop. I never actually buy anything, but I can spend a good half hour wandering around and appreciating and/or laughing at the things they have on offer here. Plus, it's attached to an awesome museum.more
