1. Today is your last chance to have a whirl on Kew Garden's winter Victorian carousel. It's dotted among a whole bunch of other vintage fairground rides beside their cafe, which is also serving up a menu of warming winter meals. The rides are included in the cost of entry to garden, which is £12.75 for adults.
2. If you haven't been to the Barbican's Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition, there's no better time than now. Basquiat was the biggest young artist of his generation and his sprawling show – the first major retrospective in the UK ever – unpicks all the elements that made him so special.
