It’s no secret that London is the perfect destination for all kinds of reasons. Some people spend time in the nation’s capital for a romantic weekend away with their other halves, while others do the tourist thing and check out all the sights.
There’s so much to see and do in London, but the problem is visiting the sights, dining out, and having somewhere to stay for one or more nights can be very expensive. Thankfully, there are some ways you can save money when sightseeing in London:
1. Get an Oyster Card
You don’t need to get a black cab or Uber to every destination in the capital. London’s transport system is very comprehensive, and you can use the Underground, buses, ferries, and the Docklands Light Railway to get around reasonably cheaply.
2. Make Use of Online Offers
You can use loads of websites and apps to get discount codes or details of special offers for various attractions and restaurants in central London and beyond. Don’t pay full price for everything!
3. Visit Some Free Attractions
It might surprise you to know that a vast array of attractions in the nation’s capital are free to enter, while you can also walk around the others outside for free.
4. Join a Free Walking Tour
Did you know that there are many free walking tours you can join? Some will even give you a glimpse into history by travelling along areas from Anglo-Saxon times.
5. Stay In a Hotel Outside of the City Centre
Lastly, avoid staying in a hotel in central London, especially right next to the city’s top attractions. You could end up paying more than double the national average for a room per night, as the infographic below illustrates:
