Cool spots to check out this hot summer

Summer means many things to many people. To some, it’s the windy season, where at times it’s physically possible to fly (or be flung) to wherever you need to go. For others, summer is another word for “Boney M season” as the pop super group comes out of hibernation and takes over our airwaves with their smooth, sultry voices.

For many folks however, summer is all about being out and about, wining and dining, and making memories with friends and family alike.

Thankfully, there are a quite a few spots at the V&A where you can do just that.
