We’re near phase three of unlocking and its great to see. With beer gardens, gyms and beauty salons now open it may now be harder to fit events in to your schedule, but there is definitely lots to check on in London this month.   

Next week, art galleries will be re-opening their doors to the public and there is a jam-packed timetable of culture awaiting you. What’s more? There’s another bank holiday to fill with fun activities too, so go get planning!

To help you get started, here are our top pick of things to check out around the capital after 17 May:

Feeling nostalgic? Step back into your childhood at the Victoria and Albert Museum’s upcoming exhibition which explores Lewis Carroll’s infamous Alice in Wonderland tale.
