  2. This is a great go-to list for the next time I’m back in the UK. Surprisingly, there is so much of the UK I’ve never seen & as a Brit it’s slightly embarrassing to admit.

    Reading some of those articles makes me wonder what I did with my time in London.

  10. Wow! This list is awesome. I’m in the city now and lived here once before. If you’re not careful it’s crazy expensive, but with tips like the ones you give-it’s actually a very affordable place. The two biggest money saving tips I have is to walk instead of rely solely on the tube and take advantage of all of London’s freebies, which there are loads of! I’ll be using this post while I’m here. Cheers!

    • I was amazed at how many free things there were to do in London! Even using the tube, we still walked A LOT…London is just a huge city, but we tried to avoid taking the tube when possible because it was so expensive.

  11. I am beginning to think I’ll need to return to London with a higher budget. The problem with making it your last stop on a trip around the world is that everything, EVERYTHING seems soooo expensive. So we didn’t do a thing other than take very long strolls, visit some free museums, and spend quality time in pubs.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I might do the same with

    • Yeah, I could use some quality time in the pub right now…I can’t wait to go back to London someday. I missed one of the “touristy” things that I really wanted to see there. We never made it to the Tower of London (which I have heard is expensive and touristy but SOOO worth it.)

  14. That’s a very informative post, indeed. I don’t need my London Lonely Planet Book anymore :):). Can’t wait to re-visit London and explore the London Bridge once again 🙂

    • Yeah, me too. I haven’t been to London in a while…it is always a favorite city of mine to visit.

  15. Wow!! What an amazing guide to London. Love how you’ve really captured some of the best things to do, but you’re missing a few highlights – notably stories from East London. This is the coolest part of London (well, at least for me!). Also, if I could be so bold, I’d recommend the East End Food Tour – it’s definitely a unique tour!!
