Why locals recommend it
As a museum of “stuff the empire stole from the world,” this is hard to beat. It appears throughout A.S. Byatt’s novel The Children’s Book, which is set in Edwardian London and which describes the ceramics in Rooms 140-146 in luscious, sumptuous detail. The museum always has that former empire vibe for me. The scones with cream and jam are pretty great in the downstairs cafe, which also feels very E.M. Forster. If you know a member, or decide to become one, you also get access to an amazing secret cafe hidden at the back of the glass collection.

When it comes to history of design, this is the place to go. With its beautiful compound and its excellent location in Kensington, directly next to the Natural History Museum, it's one of my favorite places to go to!
