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.
All of this choice comes at a price and being the capital London is not the cheapest city to visit, however, with a huge choice of accommodation including hostels and B&Bs and luxury hotels, there is something for most budgets. Eating out is much cheaper in areas away from central London and there are always fast food and supermarkets to keep costs down. Transport is the biggest yet most essential expense in London. As an alternative, if the weather is good, city bike hire costs just £2* for 24 hours. Many major attractions have an entry fee however entry to London’s parks, museums and most galleries is free of charge. Many hotels include breakfast in their stay which is worth taking advantage of. Dinner in an average restaurant will cost anywhere from £14* for one. A cafe coffee starts from £2* while a pint will be around £4.50*.
