    The Victoria and Albert Museum would be on my list. The Victoria and Albert Museum (often abbreviated as the V&A), in The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, London, England, is the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects. Named after Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, it was founded in 1852, and has since grown to now cover some 12.5 acres (0.05 km2)[2] and 145 galleries. Its collection spans 5,000 years of art, from ancient times to the present day, in virtually every medium, from the cultures of Europe, North America, Asia and North Africa. The museum is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
    The holdings of ceramics, glass, textiles, costumes, silver, ironwork, jewellery, furniture, medieval objects, sculpture, prints and printmaking, drawings and photographs are among the largest and most comprehensive in the world.

    No I haven't been there but I found a link to their site somewhere, maybe on this board? They had the coolest program. You could upload a photo and have it printed in a quilt with up to 20 colors! I just like to play with ideas, I didn't actually make it.

    There are some very nice areas to visit in the SWMidlands!! I agree we are very short on Quilting shops but you can.t beat Stratford -on-Avon and the surrounding countryside for seeing the Real England!!
