What to expect in London
Exciting London is a great city to visit at any time of year, from winter when Christmas markets, ice rinks and festive lights bring the city to life in a blaze of scents and colour; summers when canal-side drinking, alfresco dining, music and beer festivals and outdoor markets are just some of the wonderful outdoor activities to enjoy, and autumn and spring when the many and beautiful green spaces like Hyde Park, Richmond, Park, Victoria Park, Hampstead Heath and St James Park burst with natural beauty and wildlife.
The West End sparkles and offers spectacular shows all year round. Fabulous restaurants, world class museums and galleries, ballet, theatre, iconic sights and historic monuments, breathtaking architecture, local markets, micro breweries, vintage, designer and high street shopping and a non-stop nightlife are always part of London life and available no matter what the time or year.
Obviously, London is not a particularly cheap city to visit but thanks to its size there are a huge range of accommodation, dining, shopping and sightseeing options enabling most budgets to enjoy the London experience. One of the main costs when visiting London is public transport, which even with an Oyster Card, can be more than £10* a day. For a cheaper alternative, think about hiring a bicycle for just £2* for 24 hours – if the weather allows! Many attractions have an entry fee from the London eye, which is £24.50* for adults and £17* for children and the Tower of London which is £33* for adults and £11* for children however the Natural History Museum and the Tate Modern are free as are many other museums and galleries, iconic sights like St Paul’s Cathedral are free and you can see London Bridge strolling along the river – there is plenty on offer that doesn’t cost money. Budget breakfasts, lunches and dinners can easily be found in snack bars and cafes, local restaurants away from central London, even pop-up restaurants in people’s, homes so eating out doesn’t have to cost the earth.
