In this video I talk about typical London attractions like the markets, Buckingham Palace, the usual tourist locations like Piccadilly Circus, and the more unusual things to do in London like seeing what East London has to offer and what to do in London for free at night.

You don’t need money to have a great time in London! As a backpacker, I know how great it is to do things for free in a new city. So I thought I’d share my knowledge of the city I know best, to help all of you who travel to London have a fun-filled, inexpensive city break! Here’s where we go in the video:

1. Museums – Natural History, Tate Modern, British Museum
2. Parks – Hyde Park, Regent’s Park, Richmond Park
3. Markets – Camden, Portobello, Columbia Road
4. Royals – Buckingham Palace, St James’s Park
5. Embankment at night
6. Southbank
7. Sunrise at Primrose Hill
8. East London – Brick Lane, Box Park, Chance Street
9. Window Shopping – Harrods, Selfridges
10. Tourist Snaps – Southbank, Chance Street, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Abbey Road

London is big! There are a lot of activities, fun things, for adults, for kids, and a lot of them are expensive. But if you plan well and think ahead there’s so much London has to offer that’s cheap or free. This video’s not meant to be a definitive guide as to things to do in London, it’s just my advice about what I have enjoyed or I think is fun to do for free.

If you’re on vacation or a Brit heading to London for the first time, let me know, I’d love to hear from you! Send me a pic or message. For more general tips on backpacking and travelling, check out my top tips: https://youtu.be/dyujisFqG7M

Lovely, stunning freewheeling capital city. Did you know, that many of the parents in London ignore traffic laws with their children and that many of these parents are civil servants? Youth in England deserve better., from their civil servants. Let’s have a robust and vigorous attitude towards public safety and end the current freewheeling capital city phenomenon, by doubling traffic fines in capital cities, like London, Paris, Rome, Athens and Moscow. What do you think?

Camden costs a bit more (for transport) but it’s totally worth it! Go early and browse through the shops the whole day 🙂 They also have amazing street food.

Excellent fun video. I’m a Londoner myself. Now residing outside and abroad. I do tours myself. I should say thay nearly all your free visits have a slight fee…
The Tube ( London’s costly metro, subway, train system ). You will need to get hold of a London Visitor’s ( Tourist ) Oystercard.
Buy it online before you go. Then you can top it up ( buy more credit ) when you need to from a central London tube station or online, with your creditcard of course.
Plan your visit making sure you know which zones on the Tube ( check out a Tube map, free online ) you want to visit.
I highly recommend you get a Oystercard for two zones.
You can use it it on the London buses as well in the zones you paid for.
Check put Transport for London ( tfl.com ) or Londontown.com
London is extensive. You cannot simply walk from Camden Toqn market to Hyde Park or Trafalgar square unless you really do have time to waste…Walking for free.
