I very much enjoyed my visit to this quaint and friendly museum. I saw the 'Picasso to Warhol in textiles' exhibition which was executed beautifully with trad jazz playing appropriately in the background. If you have an interest in pattern and design and how art and fashion can cross over brilliantly then go see this lovely exhibition. Also as I had travelled by train I showed my ticket at reception and printed out a coupon from the 2for1 for london website and got a buy one get one free ticket for me and my daughter.
