As we know, London is not famed for being the most economical city to live in or visit, making it inevitable to be caught in the catch 22 of seeing the sites and trying not to go bankrupt. So what’s the secret to enjoying the capital on the cheap? We’re all for saving money and exploring the city on a different kilt here at TCé, so you might want to incorporate some of these tips for getting round all the sights without breaking the bank.
- Walk it: This is a city that pre dates the automobile and so exploring by foot is the best way around. Just remember to take your map! Have a go at some of Badaude’s London walks this Spring and Summer.
- Bike it: Boris remains in the London Mayor seat and it’s no surprise after he brought us the Boris Bikes! You may have seen them dotted around the city – they are everywhere and a great way to see the sites on the cheap. Priced at around a single pound an hour, it’s definitely cheaper than the gym.
- Bus it: Not keen on braving the English rain on the bike? Then there is always the archetypal red bus. The old Route Masters run a heritage route that passes some of the famous sites such as the Albert Hall.
- Save it: If you fancy getting a bit closer to the action how does a lovely discount on the best attractions sound? A lot more palatable? How about a 20% London Dungeon discount via SmartSave? Well, this voucher company offers money off nearly all the attractions in the capital including the slightly scary but hilarious trip into the immersive London Dungeon experience (and you can get your SmartSave vouchers for London Dungeon just here ). You would be crazy to explore London without it.
