In order to fly to Turkey I had to travel via London. So I took the opportunity to make a brief stopover. It meant that I could catch the end of the London Design Festival, visit the V&A Museum and meet with Liberty of London.
Even though London was in addition to my Winston Churchill Programme, I believed it would be integral in informing my experiences from Japan and China, and to prepare for Turkey. Many of the world’s treasures have been removed from their place of origin. Both the V&A and British Museum have an amazing collection of ancient through to contemporary objects, that originate from each of the places I was visiting for my Winston Churchill Research.
