As anyone who follows me on instagram might have noticed, I have had serious museum cravings lately. Before the heatwave it was generally cold and miserable outside, so I decided to spend some time at the V&A, National Army Museum and Tate Britain – I would not recommend walking there along the river from Westminster in a rainstorm as I did, though.
