Top 10 Free Attractions In London You Won't Regret To See


Are you on a budget? Want to have the best London trip without throwing 500$ out the window just to have an experience while visiting one of the world's most loved cities in the world?
The good news is...

The BEST things in life are FREE!
You heard that right!
London is an expensive city but it doesn't have to be that way. I will show you my top free tourist attraction to see and experience in London. Have the best out of the city like I did.

1. THE NATIONAL GALLERY
A museum located north side of the Trafalgar Square. The National Gallery has plenty of beautiful, historical arts that you should see while the free entrance is there. You'll see arts by Van Gogh, Titian, Rembrandt, and Turner for example. You'll see of total 2300 paintings from 1300-1900. If you're an art fanatic, this place is for you.

2. THE BRITISH MUSEUM.
The museum is SO huge, and one of the top free attractions in London. You'll see a lot of things such as the mummies, Greek sculptures, samurai armors, Rosetta Stone, and the list goes on. You'll see around 80.000 objects inside the museums on display.

3. BOROUGH MARKET.
One of the oldest markets in London, and the perfect place for you to grab food to-go on a budget. You don't have to buy anything to have an experience out of the market, you can do windows shopping and feel the atmosphere of the area.

4. THE BUCKINGHAM PALACE.
The royal residence looks beautifully if you see it with your own eyes. It's best to visit the royal residence during the daylight if you wanna see the Queen's guard. Enjoy the view and don't leave London without seeing the royal residence, if you haven't seen it before. I was there and I loved the view of it. It's a must.





5. SKY GARDEN.
Entering the Sky Garden is free and located in the central city. You can see the whole city of London from the Sky Garden. Take the chance and go there. They have 4 restaurants at Sky Garden called Fenchurch Restaurant, Darwin Brasserie, City Garden Bar, and Sky Pod Bar. Book in good time if you want a spot.

6. KENSINGTON GARDEN.
A huge park once a private garden that covers the area of 270 acres. I went there to see the statue of Peter Pan, but there are other things to see there such as The Albert Memorial, Italian Gardens Fountain, the sculpture called "Physical Energy" by G.F. Watts, and the Diana Memorial Playground for your children to see.

7. PLATFORM 9 3/4
This is for Potter-heads. You'll find Platform 9 3/4 located inside the King's Cross Station. Let your friend or family take a picture of you while you're on your way to Hogwarts with the train! You can take a picture of your own or a have a professional photo taken of you with scarf and wand.

8. THE ABBEY ROAD (THE BEATLES)
The road where the Beatles had their "Abbey Road" album cover taken. The closest underground station is St. John's Wood. It's very easy to get there. Just keep in mind that there is still traffic going on the Abbey Road, as any roads. Start to recreate the album cover with your camera!

9. TRAFALGAR SQUARE.
It's a great spot and a common tourist destination and the place where tourists gather together. It's a public spot in the central city of Westminster. Designed by the architecture named John Nash in the 1820s. The closest tube station is Charing Cross and Leicester Square. The National Gallery is at the north side of Trafalgar Square.



10. THE BIG BEN AND PARLIAMENT.
It's officially named The Elizabeth Tower instead of Big Ben, but no one really calls it Elizabeth Tower, it's known to be called Big Ben. It's the symbol of London. You won't get the exact experience as you want to because Big Ben is under reconstruction and will stay silent until 2020. Still, it shouldn't stop you from visiting the area. The architecture of the Big Ben is named Augustus Pugin.

I hope these recommendations were useful for your next trip to London.
