Things To Do This Weekend in London

There are so many things to see and do in London every day. Here is our pick of the best things to do in London this weekend, including hot new shows, exhibitions and family events.

 

It’s the last weekend of March and four of London’s best museums are rolling out their spring exhibitions for you to check out. You can take a journey underwater at the Natural History Museum, go back in time at the British Museum’s survey of Greek sculptures and jump on board an interactive trip into maritime history.

Treacherous Seas

Take a journey into the uncharted at the National Maritime Museum this weekend. Against Captain’s Orders is the first foray into family events from the immersive experience specialists Punchdrunk Enrichment. Aimed at six to 12 year olds, kids will be asked to strap on a lifejacket and go on a journey through maritime history, tearing through the hallways of the museum and jumping on board HMS Adventure. 28 Mar-31 Aug

A Study in Colour

The annual Tate Commission at Tate Britain sees Christina Mackie take over the famous Duveen Galleries with her own artistic vision. Mackie’s focus is on pigments and colour, and this bold three-part installation will reflect that. Keep an eye out for the set of 12-metre-high dipped silk nets suspended above pans of semi-crystalised dye. 24 Mar-18 Oct

Secret Cities

The Natural History Museum is taking you into the underwater world of Coral Reefs for its latest big exhibition. Visitors can get up close to stunning coral formations and more than 200 specimens of the weird and wonderful creatures that call them home. Highlights include a virtual dive and coral samples collected by Charles Darwin himself. 27 Mar-13 Sep

Sculpted Physique

Defining Beauty: The Body in Ancient Greek Art is the British Museum playing to its strengths, exploring the ancient Greek’s mastery over sculpture and representations of the human form. There will be a huge number of sculptures pulled out of the archives, from the instantly recognisable white marble statues to lesser known bronze and terracotta figures and finely crafted vases. 26 Mar-5 July
