The best things in life are free

Here are five reasons why you should come and stay in one of the greatest cities in the world - and they are all FREE!

  1. Art Galleries - The Tate Modern, focusing on contemporary art and the Tate Britain displaying British Art from the sixteenth century to the present day are exceptional national art galleries housing some of the finest artworks in the world.  
  2. South bank - It is amazing how many London landmarks you can see when strolling along the River Thames - you can download free walking tours from Walk this Way.
  3. Watch a trial - You can watch the proceedings of the most famous court in the world from the public galleries from , Monday to Friday (get there half an hour early). – Central Criminal Court Old Bailey.
  4. Street markets - London is well-known for its popular street markets. The most popular are Camden Market and Portobello Market, followed closely by Greenwich Market.
  5. Enjoy the great outdoors - Head up London’s highest hills for some of the best views over London. The Royal Observatory at Greenwich (home to the Prime Meridian Line that determines Greenwich Mean Time) sits atop Greenwich Park, alongside the National Maritime Museum, and looks out over all of East London. At the top of Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill offers an unfettered view of Central London, and atop Hampstead Heaths Parliament Hill, you can see most of  the city, from the West End to the London Eye.
