Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire and Revolution

There'd be no Bridget Jones without him, but Samuel Pepys was so much more than just his diary. Discover the great man's habits, stories and experiences in an exhibition about the period between the execution of Charles I (1649) and the Glorious Revolution (1688), presented using Pepys's voice and character. Through 200 paintings and objects gathered from international museums, galleries and private collections, visitors will see the full story behind this formative era of British history.

Big Bang Data

What does data look like? Loads of 1s and 0s floating through the ether? A mass of serpentine cables? A nice-looking cat? The answer, as presented by Somerset House’s epically informative Big Bang Data exhibition, is all three.

Alice in Wonderland

150 years have passed since 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' was first published. To celebrate the anniversary, the British Library have curated this special exhibition within their entrance hall where visitors can sneak a peak at Lewis Carroll's original manuscript complete with hand-drawn illustrations, as well as beautiful editions by Ralph Steadman, Mervyn Peake, Leonard Weisgard, Salvador Dali and Arthur Rackham.

Cycle Revolution

The bicycle is the pinnacle of simple but effective human design. It has evolved from nineteenth-century push-along hobby horses through patently ridiculous penny farthing ‘ordinaries’ to the ubiquitous epitome of functionality it is today. So how do you improve on perfection? And why would you want to? This new exhibition at the Design Museum doesn’t answer those questions, but gives us plenty to think about.
