United Kingdom

We have not visited every collection but of those that we have visited in the UK and recommend are: The British Museum (and its student room which can be accessed by special request, which houses thousands of hidden treasures). The Science Museum is always a pleasure on multiple levels and The Victoria and Albert never fails to fascinate.
