London often gets a reputation for being an expensive city to visit, but that doesn’t have to be the case at all. That being said, we know that paying for a hotel, dining out, and getting around the city can soon add up, which is why we’re here today to share some of the best activities to do during your stay without breaking the bank. All of these activities are either free or inexpensive, helping to make your budget go further on your next trip to London.

Visit London’s World Famous Museums

When staying at any of our London hotels, you’ll be only a short tube or bus journey away from many of the city’s top museums. The great thing about a lot of London’s museums is that they are free to visit. Make sure you check out their website ahead of time to check if there is a fee associated with the museum you are looking to visit, or whether you need to book ahead. It’s a great way to have a fun family day out in London without spending a fortune on attraction tickets.

A Free Walking Tour of London

One of the best ways to get around London is via a walking tour. There are two ways to do this without spending a fortune. Either create your own walking tour or find a free walking tour that you can join in the city. Many of the free tours do request that you tip the tour guide, but there still isn’t a charge to join the tour. Otherwise, plan a route in advance using your phone or an online guide and head out for your own adventure around London. Our Bloomsbury Palace Hotel is the perfect place to start a walking tour, allowing you to see sights such as Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. We also enjoy walking down by the River Thames, where you’ll see many of the city’s top historical sights.

Summer Events and Picnics

London comes to life in a whole new way during the summer months, when there’s a lot more outdoor entertainment for you to enjoy. Take a look online at events calendars for your travel dates, which will allow you to see if there are any free concerts or events happening. Another cheap day out is a picnic in one of London’s top parks, such as Hyde Park or Green Park. You can visit a supermarket near the park and then enjoy the summer weather as a family without spending a fortune.

As you can see, there are many ways to enjoy a trip to London without spending hundreds of pounds each day. Make sure you also look out for discount vouchers for any of the attractions which you need to pay for, as this can help you to save a little on your admission charges. Our team will be here to help you make the most of your time in London when staying with us, so don’t hesitate to contact us today with any questions you have.
