You’ve stood beneath Dippy the Diplodocus and gawped up at Hope the blue whale, but now the Natural History Museum is letting you walk beneath one of the largest creatures that has ever graced the Earth. For the first time ever in Europe, visitors will get the chance to see the most complete gigantic dinosaur cast ever discovered: a titanosaur, four times heavier than Dippy and 12 meters longer than Hope. Find out how the creature survived and thrived on Earth, tracking its life from football-sized egg to behemoth predator.
Say hello to March. Finally, the days are getting lighter and spring is here brightening up London with colourful flowers and plenty of opportunities for sunny park walks. The month also packs in a whole host of big events from Guinness-filled St Patrick’s Day to patriarchy-smashing International Women’s Day and, of course, Mother’s Day.
This means it’s time to finally come out of winter hibernation and set about exploring the city’s fantastic parks and gardens, world-class museums and galleries, and unbeatable restaurant and bar offerings. Wander beneath one of the biggest dinosaurs ever to grace the planet at the Natural History Museum’s new exhibition ‘Titanosaur: Life as the Biggest Dinosaur’; watch Oxford and Cambridge take each other on in the historic Boat Race; settle down in the BFI for Flare, the UK’s biggest queer film event; or check out a host of fun activities going on around the city as part of the London Games Festival.
There’s also plenty of blockbuster culture to add to your diary. Grab tickets for a massive immersive production of Frank Loesser’s all-time classic musical ‘Guys and Dolls’, check out the National Gallery’s massive Modern Art exhibition, see Sheridan Smith on stage in Willy Russel’s ‘Shirley Valentine’, and see what the deal is with the new ‘The Great British Bake Off Musical’.
