I went to Oxford Street for SHOPPING! First – Selfridge’s
They had some sampling in the food hall. M&S just had a supermarket! I wandered towards Knightsbridge. Down one street I saw an Aston Martin showroom. It seemed like a random place to have it – next to some apartments. Then I realised I was in Park Lane.
I went to Harvey Nicholls, but it’s really only for fashion addicts.
The whole place was just full of tourists, except the porcelain section, where the mothers had sensibly decided not to take their children. They had £300 dinner plates.
From there I walked down to the V&A. Their fashion section was shut! But they did have a temporary exhibit about Private Eye. They encourage photography. How civilised.
They had a ton of things to see, but I went for 20th century design.
They had a good section about the 19th century. It was all standard stuff until I saw this.
I’d never heard of him!
The V&A also has free internet if you have to occupy any companions that don’t like sculpture, paintin, photography or decorative arts.
