5 Inexpensive Things to do in London

leave a comment »

These are just a few things you can do in London that are either free or have a nominal cost.  Whether you live in London, or are visiting, there are countless options that won’t hurt the pocketbook. These are some of my favorites!

  1. Go to a Museum or Art Gallery – there are quite a few museums in London who don’t charge admission (though donations are welcome!).  The British Museum, The Natural History Museum, the National Gallery, the Tate Modern and Victoria and Albert Museum are just a few free museums around town.
  2. The Royal Parks The Royal Parks are some of the most beautiful parks I have seen.  They are filled with beautiful gardens, walking paths, and trees that you’ll forget you’re in the middle of London at times.  Check out their website to see what events the parks have going on!
  3. Street Markets – Places like Camden Market, Portobello Market, Greenwich Market and others offer a great place to get out and get away from traditional malls and stores.  I’ve been to the Camden Market, and it was definitely an experience!
  4. Street Performers/Artists – Spending any small amount of time in Covent Garden, you will see a host of performers and artists.  Sarah and I had a drink and watched a school choir from the US perform various popular songs, as well as an opera singer!
  5. Go to the Pub – When all else fails, go to the pub. There are literally thousands of pubs throughout London varying in size, price, and atmosphere. Go for a drink, go for a meal, or go just to relax in by the fire with your favorite book, pubs are a great way to truly enjoy London like the locals!
