In this tercentenary of the Hanoverian accession to the throne, the V&A has brought together an extraordinary body of work to celebrate that era's most influential designer and architect - William Kent. Kent is not a man that is spoken about widely but his influence continues to be profound. This fascinating and evocative exhibition goes a long way to redressing that imbalance.
In London, for instance, our 1,030 museums and galleries and 214 theatres helped attract 15 million international tourists in 2011. With 349 live music venues, 108 cinemas, 10 major concert halls, 337 night clubs and 37,450 restaurants, London punches well above its relatively tiny weight and gains massively as a result.
