Walpole at the V & A

A visit must for Marilyn and me, as the spring weather warms,  will be the Victoria and Albert museum in South Kensington.

An exhibition entitled ‘Horace Walpole and Strawberry Hill’ runs from now until the 4th of July. This is the first major exhibition on Horace Walpole… The most important English collector of the 18th century, and brings together many of his most interesting objects. Horace Walpole was the first to recognise the importance of the portrait miniature to the history of British art.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is situated in Exhibition road, and admission is from 5 pounds, and is worth every penny!
