Free London/London on the cheap. Is it possible? Why yes, yes it is! I have always had to be thrifty, being a single mother of two, and a mum who wanted to give her children memories and new experiences. You can find cheap tickets for all the shows in Theatreland without breaking the bank (choose restricted view seats, use sites like this, that offer discounts on tickets or sign up directly to Theatre sites that offer discounts on multiple purchases. Throughout the year there are free events at The Scoop, Tate Modern, Southbank, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square. The museums are free (my favourites are the Natural History, National Gallery and the Museum of London at the Barbican). There are plenty of places to eat; not forgetting the wonderful cafes in Marks and Spencer, Food Halls in Debenhams and Boots and you cannot beat just walking the streets of London and finding all it's hidden history. London has many, many secrets, so always remember to stop and look up, or look down; and don't be afraid to walk down a hidden alley or parade, you never know what you might find.
I enjoy the format very easy to use! This definitely helps me plan my next trip to London. I go once every year, and my boyfriend and I always are looking for new, fun, and cheap things to do. This site really helps us plan our future memories! :)
