Enjoying London on a Budget

London can be expensive, but if you are on a budget, it can also be amazing.

First things first, get an Oyster card, and take the tube and buses everywhere.  Short tube trips in central zone 1 are only GBP2.40 and all buses are GBP1.50 a ride.  Just remember to tap on and tap off!

Parks in London

Great for taking a rest, and perfect in Summer!  You can grab some great salads, fruit or sandwiches from M&S or Tesco.

Buckingham Palace

A trip to London would not be complete without a visit to the Queen. i.e. Buckingham Palace. It’s beautiful and there always seems to be something going on.

Trafalgar Square

Definitely on the must-see list…


Coffee in London

Set your quality expectations low, and never, ever get coffee from Pret a Manger.  But grabbing a coffee and people-watching is a fantastic budget activity in London.


The British Museum

This could be my most favourite museum in the world.  So stunning and so much to see.
