Curated with as much thought and flair as any exhibition, with a mix of merchandise that reflects or – in the case of the commissioned items – responds to the V&A’s collections and temporary shows (they open a separate, themed mini shop for each of their big exhibitions and there’s an excellent bookshop too) . Boldly putting the shop right at the heart of the museum has made it a destination in its own right and it’s a strategy that has paid off – visitors nip in to buy a birthday present, then find impossible to leave without dipping into the galleries. Great for birthday and Christmas cards, arty scarves, contemporary jewellery and quirky decorative items

V&A Shop is number 50 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
