Want to get your fill of culture without breaking the bank? We've got you. Here are our top free exhibitions in the Big Smoke this Spring…

Harmonics in Space

The Now Gallery at Greenwich Peninsula is always playing host to some of the best artists in London, and this Spring is no exception, with Fred Butler taking over. His exhibition, Harmonics in Space, is an "exploration into the energy of chromotherapy", and features healing spheres, which visitors can place their heads into to see the colourful lights and (hopefully) enhance their mood.

You can find the gallery on Peninsula Square, SE10 0ES - it's open every day from 10 am, and runs until 29 April.

Rhythm and Reaction: The Age of Jazz in Britain

Want to relive the Roaring Twenties in true Gatsby style, or immerse yourself in the shadowy depth of New Orleans? You can get your fill of all things jazz at Two Temple Place's new exhibition, which is running until 22 April. Set over two floors, the exhibition boasts posters, vinyl, silent films, instruments, postcards and more - all full of jazzy nostalgia.

Head over to 2 Temple Place, WC2R 3BD for free entry - it's open every day except Tuesday from 10 am.

Sixties Style: Shot by Duffy

With the 70s making a major comeback in the fashion world, some of us are starting to miss the Swinging Sixties. Luckily, photographer Brian Duffy has a new exhibition paying homage to the classic sixties style, with fashion editorials, portraits, and ad campaigns capturing the iconic decade. Duffy has pretty great credentials, too - he's shot everyone from David Bowie to Grace Coddington and John Lennon.

You can find the exhibition at 32 John Adam Street, WC2N 6BP, and it's running until 18 March.

Illuminating India

It may be in South Kensington, but this exhibition is 100% Indian. Celebrating the influence of the country's science and culture, the Science Museum's latest exhibit includes a Q+A with Danny Boyle, a screening of Slumdog Millionaire, tea blending workshops hosted by the Bluebird Tea Company, and renowned Indian public speaker Sadhguru. Most of the season is completely free, just make sure to check ahead of time.

You can find the Science Museum on Exhibition Rd, SW7 2DD.

Super Sharp

In a timely nod to the fashion of the 90's garage and jungle scene, curators Tony Turk and Saul Milton have created the ultimate rave fashion tribute. With Moschino featured prominently, many pieces come from Milton's own collection, and each outfit is set up like a piece of art with listening points where visitors can have a true #TBT and hear tracks like 'Garage Girls'.

You can find this original exhibit at 20 John Princes St, W1G 0BJ.
