As we spring into March, London is once again jam-packed full of fantastic events, festivals and exhibitions. Whether you love beer, vintage or Beatrix Potter, the capital has something wonderful waiting for you. 


1. Beatrix Potter's London

Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter, the celebrated children's author and illustrator. Running until April, this exhibition honours her work, sketches and writing.

She was a regular visitor to the V&A museum and would often sit and sketch her famous drawings in its halls.

Beatrix Potter's London will be displayed at the V&A Museum until Friday 28 April.

2. WOW - Women of the World

In March, female achievements across the globe will be celebrated at WOW: Women of the World Festival. Discussion, debate, performances and activism are to take place at the Southbank Centre. It's a great opportunity to rejoice in the importance of girls and women and to explore the obstacles that still face many women in the world today.

WOW: Women of the World Festival takes place from Tuesday 7 March to Sunday 12 March. Day passes, three-day weekend passes and individual tickets are available from the festival website.

3. London Drinker Beer and Cider Festival

From Wednesday 8 March to Friday 10 March, beer and cider enthusiasts can sample some proper brews. North London's Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) presents its annual festival, where pint lovers come together to enjoy some of the most delicious ales, beers and ciders from around the world.

London Drinker Beer and Cider Festival runs at the Camden Centre. Entry is free between 11:30pm and 3pm, and £4 after 5pm, with discounts available for CAMRA members.

4. Peckham Salvage Yard

Vintage fans and bargain hunters alike will love this flea market full of second-hand gems. Explore rails of retro clothing, stacks of old-fashioned homeware and bags full of handmade crafts at Peckham Salvage Yard. After all that relentless rummaging, dig into some mouth-watering street food.

Peckham Salvage Yard takes place at Copeland Park, Peckham from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 March.

5. The Japanese House

Visit this intriguing house that echoes the legacy of the Second World War and the impact it had on Japanese culture and society. Find out how everything changed in Japan after 1945, from the architecture to family life.

You can visit the Japanese House at the Barbican Centre from Saturday 5 March until Sunday 25 June.

6. Robotics, AI and Society

Take a trip into the future at The Royal Society's Robotics, AI and Society event. Take part in discussions, listen to talks and explore what could happen if robots take over the earth.

You can find all about our mechanical friends for free at The Royal Society building in St James's from Monday 13 February until Wednesday 22 March.

7. Teenage Bedrooms

Famous curator Carey Newsom managed to convince 26 teenagers that it would be a good idea for a photographer to snap their personal spaces. In March 2017, the Geffrye Museum reveals images of these personal domains under creative scrutiny.

Find out how teenagers nowadays ensure their privacy, as well as spotting the astounding revival of some old-fashioned favourites.

You can have a nosey at others until 23 April.

8. The Museum of Transology

In March, the Fashion Space Gallery in Marylebone will display a collection of artefacts, portraits and artwork challenging the idea that gender is fixed and biologically determined.

Catch a glimpse of work by photographers and artists such as Bharat Sikka, Sharon Kilgannon and Grayson Perry.

The Museum of Transology will run until Saturday 22 April.
