Find out here!
(And everything on our list is FREE!)

From Big Ben to Little Venice, London offers a huge variety of attractions, events and experiences. There are lots of free music festivals, comedy gigs, film screenings and more… if you know where to look!



Unlike other global capitals, most of London’s museums are totally free!

You can see mummies at the British Museum, dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum and amazing art at the National Gallery for absolutely nothing.

Avoid weekends and school holidays when they’re packed with kids, research exhibitions ahead of your visit, and check out their
late-night events!


Get some fresh air at one of London’s incredible parks.

You can swim outdoors in the ponds at Hampstead Heath or in the Serpentine, meditate in the Kyoto Japanese Garden in Holland Park, spot free-roaming deer in Richmond Park, cows in Wanstead Park, or pelicans in St James’ Park.

Keep an eye out for London’s feral green parakeets!

Walking Tours

Retrace Sherlock Holmes’s footsteps around Bloomsbury, the Beatles’ footsteps on Abbey Road, or the beefeaters’ footsteps at Buckingham Palace on a free walking tour.

If you prefer, travel between attractions on our iconic transport: red double-decker buses, black cabs and the Tube are experiences all on their own!


If you know some of London’s secrets, certain skyscrapers, car parks and shopping centre rooftops have amazing free panoramic views of London.

Climb up to the
Sky Garden, Frank’s Café, the Tate Modern, or One New Change early in the morning when there’s no-one around.

Many parks also have jaw-dropping views of the city skyline: trek up to
Greenwich Park, Parliament Hill and Ally Pally – which is just a stone’s throw from Ingla!

TimeOut is another good place to find some great ideas for things to do in London!
