Whether you have the pleasure to live in London or you are just planning a cultural weekend in the British capital, there are plenty of exciting events to attend over the following months. And the good news is that they’re all free! From the latest art and design to the most alternative side of architecture and photography, once again, London won’t disappoint you. Save your money for the gift shop (Who doesn´t love the postcards at art exhibitions?) and get excited: This is also your chance to discover the city’s best museums.

Take a View: Landscape Photographer of the Year
If you love photography and, more importantly, your eyes are extremely attracted to the “unexpected”, this is the perfect time to take in a new view. Thousands of people aimed their cameras to enter this annual exhibition. The result is a wide variety of images of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK.

Extra tip: Take a walk along the Southbank and pop into the National Theatre for a cultural break. Remember, you can visit at any time between 9.30 am and 11.00 pm.

Venue: National Theatre (Upper Ground, South Bank)

Dates: Tue Jan 28th - Sun Feb 9th

3D: Printing the Future
The idea that this invention will replace the world of mass production has probably been a little over exaggerated… But why not get more information about the 3D world and its possibilities? The Science Museum of London shows around 600 objects that were created last year using this new 3D printing technology. Examples include: artworks, airplane pieces or even human organs. This is definitely a must-see exhibition for science lovers!

Extra tip: Although the museum opens until 7pm, make sure you arrive before 6.15pm, which is the last admission.

Venue: Science Museum (Exhibition Road, South Kensington)

Dates: Tue Jan 28th - Sun Jun 1st

Made in London: Jewellery Now
This is a super interesting exhibition for and by fashion lovers. Have you ever thought about how jewellery is inspired by nature? “Made in London: Jewellery Now” explores the work of seven London-based makers such as Noemi Klein, whose work draws its inspiration from the geometry and construction naturally found in nature.

Extra tip: For this exhibition, you will need to let your imagination go wild to understand that the two worlds of fashion and nature are very close.

Venue: Museum of London (150 London Wall)

Dates: Tue Jan 28 - Sun Apr 27

Behind the Mask
“Behind the Mask” is a BAFTA Future Archive collaboration with Andy Gotts, a 23-year-old photographer who specialises in actors’ portraits. Until the 6th February, Somerset House will be showing portraits of over one hundred international actors and actresses that have won or have been nominated at the BAFTA Awards since 1954. Some examples include Marion Cotillard, Jonny Deep and Daniel Day-Lewis.

Extra tip: If you miss your chance, don’t worry as the portraits will be projected onto the façade of its headquarters during the weekend of the British Academy Film Awards.

Venue: West Wing Somerset House (Strand)

Dates: Tue Jan 28th - Thu Feb 6th

Don't Move, Improve!
This exhibition is all about functional architecture. “Don’t move, Improve” shows the real life: When there is a point that we need to do an extension or conversion, as we don’t want to move house. Here you will be able to know the 72 shortlisted works from architects and homeowners from all over the country.
Extra tip: Don´t forget your notebook to write down some ingenious solutions!

Venue: New London Architecture (The Building Centre, 26 Store St)
