V&A Dog Memorials

The Victoria and Albert Museum—known colloquially to Londoners as simply the “V&A”—houses one of the world’s preeminent collections of art and design, attracting millions of people to West London each year to gaze at the beautiful objects it houses. Yet few realize there’s a much more unusual claim to fame hidden on the grounds.

Tucked inside a niche in the museum’s John Madejski Garden are two small plaques memorializing Victorian England’s most celebrated pooches: Jim and Tycho.
