  • I seem to find the Fashion and Textile Museum an absolute nightmare to find but they always have good exhibitions. This exhibition consisted of beautiful bold and colourful prints and paintings, I lov...  more »

  • Went to the cafe and waited whilst our daughter had a look round the gallery. Nice coffee and good value at £2.50 each.  more »

  • Visited the Josef Frank exhibition today - we thought it was an excellent display and very well arranged. The textiles are stunning, and upstairs are several watercolours. Colour everywhere - very energising and inspiring! The cafe was nice too - a good choice of food, but rather noisy at lunchtime with all the hard surfaces. Friendly staff in both the cafe and the museum itself. Will now certainly keep an eye open for future exhibitions.
  • We arrived at 5.20 on a wet and windy day after walking for 45 minutes, only to be told we weren't allowed in. The website and the info on google maps said it shut at 6, but they said last entry was 5.15. We asked politely if we could stay by the reception and wait for our friend, who was already inside - this was met with a firm "no" and we were then ignored and locked out of the building. I'm writing this as we wait for him now, in the cold.
  • Update I saw Jazz Age😍😍😍😍😍 Love it...only one week left to see it. It's great!!! Go!!!!... I wish to have time to see it again. I think it is the best exhibition so far in F&T Thank you☺☺☺☺☺ I am a woman and anything to do with fashion will always fascinate me. And even though I don't follow trends. I love to know why, what, how...for me fashion is like an art, it keeps changing.😍 I just love this tiny museum dedicated to art of fashion and its changing exhibitions. I have seen many and I hope to see many more. Worth the visit.☺ Keep up good work. Thank you.😊
  • Went to see the contemporary Swedish textile exhibition as advertised on their website. £9 to see 10 pieces of fabric hanging in one small soulless room... I could honestly see more by going to ikea!
  • They have 2/F, not a lot of things to see. The security black guy is very rude, the closing time should be 5:00pm, but at 4:40pm, he already keep asking everyone to leave, I leave at 4:55pm finally, but he had already ask me to leave for 3 times.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
