I started the day with a quick trip to the V&A to see their new exhibition galleries in which I have, as was pointed out, a nerdish interest.   I am probably not allowed to say anything about them (I certainly wasn’t allowed to take photographs) other than that there is going to be a beautiful courtyard behind the screen on Exhibition Road where the boilers used to be (and before that Henry Cole’s residence), Amanda Levete has solved the problem of disabled access with great elegance (but only one lift) and the staircases are made of the most amazing black polished lacquer:-

  1. Why on earth weren’t you allowed to take photographs?

    I’m delighted about the lifts, obviously ! (What is Disabled Access going to be like in Burlington Gardens?)

    i had two versions – one was greenish mud brown, and the other dull Hookers green. Glad if they’ve gone for ever
