Given there’s so much going on in London in the next couple of months, we thought we would explore a few things you can do without travelling more than a few miles.
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, the Queen’s Gallery has mounted the largest exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical studies – a must for any budding artists (or doctors!)
For polo lovers, book your tickets for Mint Polo in the Park, held over three days in Hurlingham Park. It has all of the glamour of Smith’s Lawn, without the M4 journey!
If you’re looking for a little style, why not do to the Hermes Exhibition - Leather Forever 6 Burlington Gardens, London W1 S3ET. It’s free entry and runs from 8th-27th May, opening between 10am-6pm.
To celebrate the reopening of the Fashion Galleries, the V&A are putting on Ballgowns:British Glamour Since 1950. The exhibition starts on 19th May and will be on until 6th January.
There is more glamour going on at Chris Beetles Gallery as Magnum Photos are mounting an exhibition of the most memorable images of the past six decades – Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson to name but a few.
The South Bank is full of wonderful entertainments – this stretch of river next to the National Theatre is fast becoming London’s most exciting place to visit. We particularly like the idea of Cantina - a circus cabaret mix which is edgy, stylish and scary all at the same time.
