John Madejski Garden
Home to the world’s largest collection of art and design, the Victoria and Albert Museum – known as the V&A – is one of London’s most prestigious museums. Sitting on the spruced-up sweep of Exhibition Road in South Kensington, the 19th-century building is just as impressive as any of the artefacts inside – don’t miss the immaculate John Madejski Garden. Just inside the museum entrance is the Dome, with its soaring ceiling, which holds up to 600 guests for a reception and 250 for dinner. Also available are a series of striking galleries holding up to 400 for dinner and 700 for receptions. For meetings, there is the Lydia and Manfred Gorvey Lecture Theatre and the Hochhauser Auditorium.
The V&A has been given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive to curate the first international retrospective of the singer’s career. ‘David Bowie is...’, due to open on 23 March, will bring together more than 300 objects including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, photography and set designs from the past five decades. The space will be available for private hire, and viewings can also be built into events in the Dome, Raphael Gallery and courtyard garden.
