Top 10 free things to do in London – Attractions without price tags

London offers more free things to do than any other city in the world. Museums with free admissions, markets, amazing parks and beautiful cemeteries are all elements of a London tour.

1

National Gallery

National Gallery of London has a spectacular collection of artworks done by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Van Gogh and Renoir. Every year, the gallery receives over six million visitors. If you want to avoid crowds of people, you should visit the place on weekday mornings and Friday evenings. Whatever time you choose to go, seeing the world-famous art gallery is absolutely free.

2

British Museum

One of top London's attractions, British Museum is an absolute must-visit if you are ever in London: especially if you are staying at a Bayswater hotel, possibly the likes of Berjaya Eden Park London Hotel. Its collection of artefacts is diverse with exhibits like Egyptian mummies, Rosetta stone and Anglo-Saxon burial treasures. The remarkable fact is that at any given time, what's on display is only a 1% of the total amount of artefacts the museum has in its possession: the number of exhibits the museum holds totals up to eight million.

3

Houses of Parliament

This is home to the most known clock in the world, Big Ben. The Houses of Parliament is designed in neo-Gothic style, and it was constructed in the mid-19th century. It has two houses: the Commons and the Lords. A tourist is permitted to go inside given that they have made a reservation, but even if you couldn't reserve in advance, with any luck, you might able to gain entry.

4

Tate Modern

One of the most loved attractions in London, Tate Modern, is located on the south bank of the Thames. There's a permanent collection you can enjoy, including Warhol, Pollock, Picasso and Matisse. The building itself is an attraction, and the upstairs café offers terrific views of the Thames.

5

Greenwich Park

This is another attraction London is famous for. The top of the hill that's situated in the middle of the park is a spectacular viewpoint; it offers you lovely views of the city. The 17th century Queen's House and the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf are in the best view when seen from the viewpoint in Greenwich Park. The place is also ideal for a picnic.

6

East London Street Art

The nature of street art is that it changes regularly, therefore it is difficult to say where exactly you might find the displays of street art. However, several regions in East London are host to amazing graffiti. If you go to Brick Lane, you can see some impressive artwork, Sclater and Middlesex streets are famous for having street art too.

7

Borough Market

The market celebrated its 1000th birthday in 2014, establishing itself as a necessary part of the capital. Open from Monday through Saturday, the market has stacks full of food items promoting various cuisines in the world. Borough Market is an excellent place for a wanderer who wants to have a quick breakfast or lunch.

8

Museum of London

Not many visitors are aware of the touristy grace of Museum of London. Yet, it stands to be one of the city's best attractions. The museum presents its visitors with a walk through different periods of the city's history.

9

Kensington Gardens

The garden itself is a delightful attraction, but it is also home to many London highlights such as the Peter Pan statue, the Albert Memorial, the Diana Memorial Playground and the Serpentine Gallery. All the attractions come free of charge, and when you've had your fill of sightseeing, you can ramble about through paths lined with trees.

10

National Portrait Gallery

Before the era of Google, the British people came to the National Portrait Gallery to admire their favourite historical figures. The paintings found at the gallery are priced on account of their subjects rather than the artists. Among the highlights are Queen Elizabeth II and Shakespeare.
