Pick of the Spring Exhibitions

Heaps of exhibitions have opened over the last couple of weeks. We have been wandering round galleries across town and have come up with our Top Exhibitions for Families.

There are three stand outs in photography: stylish 50s' NYC at the Hayward, brightly coloured Brexit and Battenburg at the National Portrait Gallery and our Don't Miss show of the year so far is Don McCullin at Tate Britain.

At the Royal Academy, give the star-laden Renaissance nudes a miss with your kids; instead, we reckon littles will love Phyllida Barlow in the new Burlington Gardens galleries.

There is utterly nuts sculpture at Tate Modern with Franz West who also got a big thumbs up.

Two tiny gems for older kids at the House of Illustration - Madeline and a thoughtful look at the refugee crisis.

Dior at the V&A has been extended until 1 September and is well worth a visit, while we have done a special 'Find the Dog' trail for Bonnard at Tate Modern.

Check back at the end of Thursday for our verdict on Sorolla at the National, Kaleidescope at the Saatchi and a Dambusters virtual reality exhibit at the RAF Museum Hendon.
