Situated on Cromwell Road, in the heart of the London district of Brompton, the Victoria and Albert Museum is a one of a kind venue and historical landmark. Built in 1852, the V&A is the biggest museum of decorative arts and design on the globe. Featuring an original Victorian architecture, the venue can also be hired for hosting special events like weddings and parties. The maximum capacity is for 600 guests. Starting with 2001, the Victoria and Albert Museum has undertaken a huge renovation project.
