More of a foodie? You can find food from all over the world in London, so tuck in and eat your way around the globe!

Despite its reputation as an expensive city, there’s plenty to do for free in London, whether it’s visiting one of the many parks, including the beautifully landscaped Royal Parks, walking along the Thames, browsing the stalls at the famous markets, or taking advantage of the free gigs and comedy nights that you’ll find all over the city.

Plus, transport is a breeze in London. You can get all over the capital using the London Underground, with some lines running a 24-hour service at weekends. There are also innumerate buses, and always a night bus that can get you home. You can also walk between many locations too!
