Nerdy Travels: London Day 3

Our third day of London was pretty packed as we went to both the Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery.

Our first stop was the V&A and we were hoping to see the Winnie the Pooh exhibition but it was all sold out *cries*. As sad as that was we still had a good look around and saw the huge vault like Jewellery section which had jewellery dating all the way back to ancient times which was fascinating. I was so tired that day and the room was so warm that I nearly fell asleep from pure exhaustion.

We also spent time walking about the fashion section which showed fashion from the 18th century all the way to current day which was really fun to see. I didn’t get any picture but it was amazing to see how fashion has changed and how small men and women were a couple hundred years ago compared to now. We also looked in the Japan section which had all different aspects of Japanese culture like fashion, samurai and tea ceremonies.

We also past the National History Museum which has an amazing dinosaur exhibit (dinosaurs are cool) but unfortunately we didn’t have enough time.

We finished the day off at the National Portrait Gallery which is near Trafalgar Square. I love old paintings as I think they are so beautiful to look at and admire. It’s fascinating how the paintings and sculptures are hundreds of years old as its like staring into the past.

They had paintings dating from Tudor time all the way up to the 21st century! Some of them where the size of the wall they were that big!

We headed back to the hotel after the gallery and we stopped at The Noble Collection in Covent Garden. The Noble Collection is a collectible themed store mainly focusing on Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them but also has other collections such as The Hobbit, Games of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. They have reasonably priced collectibles and I purchased a Niffler figure from Fantastic Beasts which I fell in love with!

Hope you’re having a great day!
