London Travel – Free Things to do in London

London is my favorite city on this planet. I first went there after graduating high school and in the last 20 years I try to visit at least every two years. Unfortunately, the exchange rate between U.S. dollar and the British pound has made visiting nowadays a little more expensive than it used to be, but there are still plenty of free things to do in London. Here is a list of some of my favorites.

Museum Jump London

Most major museums in London are free to visit. So each of my trips to London, often visit and spend a couple few hours wandering the galleries and exhibitions. Some of my favorites is National Portrait Gallery right on the edge of Trafalgar Square, the Victoria & Albert (V & A) in South Kensington, and the Tate Modern on Bankside near the London Bridge.

Window shopping and street markets

There are modern many shops in London, which I like to stay away from chain stores. It's more fun to putter in different stores that are not like back home. My favorite place of window shopping is Covent Garden and the streets running off it. Usually duck into Neal's Yard Neal Street, a few blocks from Covent Garden, to treat myslf a nice bit of cheese on Neals Yard Dairy. Sorry, the cheese, which is not free!

Other favorites are wandering points of Kings Road (starting near Sloane Square), and Carnaby Street. Some of the side streets in Soho also have some interesting shops and if you like books, Charing Cross Road and the streets that run off it is fun to stroll.

Also, be sure to visit some of London's most popular street markets. My favorite is the Portobello Road in Notting Hill for lots of cool second hand goods and flea market finds. There is a market here six days a week! Sunday is the only day that no market.

If it is Sunday, however, they can always go to Camden Market. That is the best day to go there anyway. When you exit the Camden tube station, only to the north but you will have no problem with getting lost because the place was packed with people.

People watching

No matter what time of year you visit, London is always full of people. There are some great locations in town for a few hours of immersion in the flavor of the place. Piccadilly and Trafalgar Square Square are the most obvious places, but I also like Covent Garden because it tends to be a little calmer and usually have street performers too.

If you are going round on Sunday and not in the mood for Camden Market, why not head to Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park and see who is determined to give a speech. Looking at the audience that gathers is as fun as watching some of the most entertaining speakers.

Hope I helped you with some ideas of some of the things you can do for free in London. The city is a vibrant and ever-changing place to be I think aimlessly in the direction that I feel as if pass leads to a new and interesting to discover. All you need is a pair of comfortable shoes and maybe a pass for the metro.
