First visit was to the wonderful Victoria and Albert Museum, chock full of wonderful treasures. The main focus was for Jenny to see the Textile Gallery. There were many samples of embroidery, lacework and woven fabrics on display, able to be pulled out and examined in double sided glass frames. Of particular interest were the wonderfully old medieval embroideries on show. We had a quick look around some of the other areas but there was so much to see we couldn't do it justice in the time available. We had noticed some damage to the outside stone walls and enquired about it. The guide informed us that the British Museum across the street was badly damaged during the war and the pock marks we noticed were caused by flying debris when the building across the road exploded .
