Yesterday I decided to spend my lunchtime and afternoon having a meandre around a museum and then grabbing a lunch somewhere.
It was quite a day outside, so I hopped the tube the South Kensington and had a little bit of time before meeting my friend.
I (grumpily) popped across the road to the V&A to meet my friend, as we wanted to check out the fashion exhibition, but in very unusual(ish) style we ended up spending more time in the gift shop ogling the screenprints.
In my defence as much as I adore museums, the V&A is a bit too overwhelming for me. Their Samurai displays are incredible, but there is so much to take in, I find it quite difficult to know what to look at/where to go.
We decided on Brompton Food Market, and I am so glad we did! It’s a posh deli/supermarket type place, and if you head through their back door, they have what they call their ‘secret garden cafe’.
I went for salad as it was so hot, and man I can still taste those tomatoes, they were so fresh! If you have a day at a museum planned in the area, I definitely recommend this place!
That lemonade was so perfect in the heat.
Do any of you have a favourite London museum? Do you have any other recommendations in the South Kensington area?
