David Bowie's London

David Bowie's London
Right now that would be the Victoria and Albert Museum--where the very popular David Bowie Exhibition is taking place.
In the first place the Victoria and Albert Museum is a great way to spend the day out of the cold weather that is currently plaguing my favorite city.
I could easily spend all day there--the food is excellent and reasonably priced--perfect for tea or dinner--and best of all, admission is free.
There is also an exhibition there about fashion showing styles from the 1700's to the present time.  That portion is also free and it is very worth seeing--it shows the importance of the couture designers on fashion trends and clothing construction.  My sewing teacher had spoken of the the V and A--I had been longing to see it forever--that alone was worth the visit.
The other very convenient thing about the V and A is the location--right at the south Kensington Tube Station--if it is too cold just enter the place from the tunnel underground.
When we were there we thought David Bowie must have been there in person the way the crowd was lining up straight out of the door to see him.

Needless to say the David Bowie Exhibition is very popular.

copied from the v and a website:
23 March – 11 August 2013. The V&A has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie. David Bowie is features more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie's own instruments.
