If you’ve been following our daily tips highlighting the best bits of London Design Festival then you’ll be aware of the variety of visual talent that has been on show throughout the capital all week. This weekend marks the end of the festival, but there’s still plenty to see if you missed the beginning. Victoriana: The Art of Revival at City of London’s Guildhall Yard (10am-5pm Fri-Sat, 10am-4pm Sun) offers a steampunk special of recycled and re-imagined neo-Victorian art and design. Another retrospective affair is Memory Bank at the V&A (10am-5pm Sat-Sun), in which participants are invited to delve into their personal memories and choose just one to represent using a web-based drawing tool, to be archived as part of a collective memory bank. Finally, if you’re after a quick design fix, pop your head around the door of One Aldwych to peek at glass artist Michael Ruh’s pretty installation – just don’t bring your pet rhino. Katie Forster
