Alexandra's Advice: Free London
Tags: days out | london | tips | trips

As part of the English UK All Inclusive London, we’ve come up with our favourite Free London activities.

1)      Free Museum: Science Museum


This large modern Museum is full of fascinating objects and interactive exhibits. From a machine that shows you what you'll look like when you’re old, to futuristic games about driverless cars, there’s something fun for everyone!

Nearest tube: South Kensington.

2)      Free Art Gallery: Tate Modern


Arguably London’s best known art gallery, the Tate Modern doesn’t disappoint. This fun gallery has plenty to look at even if you’re not an art-lover, and if you are, you’ll love to see these famous modern paintings!

Nearest tube: Southwark 

3)      Free open spaces: Cannizaro Park


We might be biased because it’s in Wimbledon but Cannizaro Park is a tranquil place to relax, enjoy the summer sun or take a brisk walk on a sunny winter’s day.

Nearest tube: Wimbledon 

4)      Free street art: Shoreditch


If you like street art, a walk around the East End is a great way to catch everything from Banksy to lesser known (but still amazing) artists! The Hackney Post has a useful map of the best places in Hackney to catch great iconic street art.

Nearest tube: Shoreditch

5)      Free performances: Covent Garden

Covent Garden is a great place to visit because it’s a fun, buzzing part of London with lots of cool shops, restaurants and bars. It’s also a great place to catch some crazy street artists and street performers. From men on bikes cycling a slack line (terrifying) to some seriously impressive magic tricks and the best mimes in London.

Nearest tube: Covent Garden

6)      Free walking tours: Central London


What’s better than a free guided walking tour? It's a fun and informative way to learn about London. Make sure you tip your tour guide after. There are lots of tour companies that offer free guided walking tours – we recommend Sandeman’s New Europe Tour or Walks.com

7)      Free views: Primrose Hill


The London skyline is so famous you must see it for yourself! Going on the London Eye or up the Shard is a great way to see all the sights of London but tickets can be pricey. Primrose Hill is 256 foot  hill located on the northern side of Regent's Park in London. From the top of the hill, you get an amazing view of Central London and surrounding areas stretching as far out as Wembley and Crystal Palace.

Nearest tube: Primrose Hill

8)      Free Culture: Barbican Centre / Royal Festival Hall



There’s always something weird and wonderful going on at these two art venues from live to music to free art to literature festivals, especially on the weekends. Have a look at their websites beforehand to get an idea of what's on!

Nearest tube: Barbican / Waterloo

9)      Free dance and theatre: The Scoop


It’s quite hard to find free dance and theatre in London but the fairly unknown Scoop is a great place to catch free performances in its 800 seat amphitheatre.

Nearest tube: London Bridge

10)   Free Historical House: Sir John Soane Museum

One of most fun things to do in London and England is to look around old houses and admire the wonderful decor and paintings! The Sir John Sloane Museum is amazing because it’s free and on Tuesday evenings (6-9pm) you can walk around the house in candle light.

Nearest tube: Holborn
