Where arts and sciences meet
Welcome to Exhibition Road, South Kensington, home to 18 world famous cultural, scientific and academic institutions – including the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, two Royal Parks and so much more. This is the place to come for innovation, inspiration and learning in the arts and science.
Known to some as Albertopolis, the origins of this extraordinary area date back to the mid nineteenth century and Prince Albert’s vision about how to invest the profits from Great Exhibition of 1851. Generating and sharing knowledge and inspiring the engineers, designers, scientists, musicians and artists of the future is still at the heart of what we do today.
