Photography enthusiasts, don’t miss the inspiring Ansel Adams exhibition at the National Maritime Museum which is on until 28th April 2013. Along with the iconic Snake River and Yosemite images, you’ll also get the chance to some of his earliest work. The video of him being interviewed is worth watching–I liked the idea of the “negative” being like the score in music, and the “developing” like a conductor who interprets and brings the image to life.

So you’ve trawled the British Museum for Egyptian relics, the Science Museum for dinosaur bones and the V&A for Art Nouveau designer flair, but now you’d like to visit something a little different… London’s top-drawer museums are just the tip of the iceberg

2012 promises to be an exciting year for London. The New Year began with the familiar sounds of the chimes of Big Ben, followed by a spectacular firework display over the River Thames. But there is even more to look forward to!

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is my current favourite in London. Established in 1852 to display decorative arts and design, it’s in a gorgeous old building; it’s huge (over four million objects), and it’s full of surprises. I tend to go there without a plan and wander through a different floor or corridor each time. (Like all the great London museums and galleries, entry is free.) I’ve ended up gazing into stain glass, being dazzled by intricate silver goblets and boxes, and drooling over shoes and clothes from the world’s most adventurous designers. There is also a major photography collection.
