London. For many people the name alone conjures up pound signs. London can be as expensive as you want it to be. Fancy a hotel suite for £26,000 a night? It’s yours. Are you hungry enough for a £300 a-head meal? We can book you a table. However, there is a flip side to the expensive side to London. The Free side!
Surprisingly, London has many free things to offer tourists and locals alike. From free museums to free live music. You can literally fill your day up with free things to do in London.
Not many cities offer free entry to their museums but in London almost all the museums offer free admission. They do like you to leave a donation but it is completely optional. These world-class institutions are a great way to learn about London’s (and Britain’s) past. You could spend two weeks alone just visiting London’s museums and galleries.
Did you know that 47% of London is green space? Unsurprisingly, that makes London one of the greenest capitals in the world. Like most cities the parks and green spaces of London are almost all free (there are some private parks that are not open to the public). They are a great way to kick back and unwind from the hectic city. Each park in London has its own character. For example, Hyde Park has the massive serpentine lake in it, Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath have amazing views of the city and Epping Forest is wild and natural.
The UK is world-famous for its comedy. From Monty Python to The Office, the British humour is exported to TV channels all around the world. London is full of comedy clubs. Be it little rooms above pubs to dedicated comedy clubs that have shows on every night of the week. Amazingly there are quite a few comedy clubs that have free entry. Having a few drinks and lots of laughs is a great London night out. Here is a list of places where you can get free laughs:
London is undoubtedly the home of live music. In the past two weeks alone we have had Beyonce and Jay Z, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, and The Arctic Monkeys all play in various venues around the city. Now, we are not saying that these gigs were free but there are many places where you can catch live music for absolutely nothing.
