Discover the hidden textile gems of the wonderful (and vast) Victoria & Albert Museum with an experienced antique textile trader. With over 25 years experience in selling antique textiles (in London’s famous Portobello Road market and many other venues, both in the U.K and abroad) and giving talks on the subject, I am looking forward to sharing my passion for the subject with you, as we journey through the centuries in this historic venue. I also host this experience - 'Antique Lace Tour and Tea Party'

Where you'll be

The Victoria and Albert Museum is a world-class museum for textiles and the largest museum in the world dedicated solely to the decorative arts, with 145 galleries on its 12 acre site. It houses many outstanding European textiles, as well as beautiful textiles from many other cultures. In this short tour we will be mainly looking at European objects, but I highly recommend visitors also drop into some of the other galleries if they have time!
