I had a wonderful visit to the V&A's first day open to the public. Just look at that queue. Although it was busy, there was a great buzz and the flow of people around the building was smooth and well-managed.
Designed by acclaimed architect Kengo Kuma
, there is much to admire about the use of light and space in and out of the building and how it relates to the waterfront landscape around it. There are plenty of corners and pockets to explore and the space offers up some unexpected views. You could easily spend a day looking at the exhibitions
and eating in the restaurant and cafe. At the moment it is best if you book ahead for the restaurant.
If you are visiting Dundee by train, you can't miss the V&A as it's right opposite the station exit and right next door to Captain Scott's RRS Discovery ship
It's also on the doorstep of Malmaison Hotel
and an easy ten minute walk to both McManus Art Gallery & Museum
