London is such an amazing city, and is sure to always have what seems like an endless list of things to do whether it be an activity, landmark, museum, bar, cafe, or show…there is something for everyone. Although London csn get expensive, here is a list of free things you can do that are still lots of fun and a great way to spend a day in the city.
Caden market is one of the cutest hidden gems in London. It is north of the river, in Camden Town, and is sure to fill your day with something new. The market itself is free to enter and is composed of vendors both indoors and outdoors. You can find so many things here, from food to drinks to clothing and accessories, to everything in between. Many of the vendors offer free samples, and the others are honestly really fun to just have a browser through. The paths inside also have an umbrella roof, which makes for a great photo opportunity!
The sky garden is by far one of my favorite places to go in London. You need to book your tickets online in advance as it fills up constantly, but the tickets are indeed free and you can book as many as you need at once. When you get to the garden, the view will absolutely amaze you. You can see the city for as long as you can see, and it is amazing to see just how massive London really is. You can also get a birds eye view of tower bridge, the shard, and the London eye which is pretty cool! I’d also recommend going at sunset, to see the colors light up the entire sky over the river.
In south east London, you will find Greenwich park; one of the biggest parks in London. Ti spark is gorgeous and is the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. In the spring there are paths with cherry blossoms that line the sides and make a beautiful tunnel. There is also a massive hill you can climb, and see the whole London skyline from. It is an amazing view and makes the perfect picnic spot. There are also numerous gardens throughout with gorgeous flowers you can admire.
Last but not least, I had to add the Thames river to this list! I personally love walking along this river at any time of the year, as it runs though central and opasses by many major London landmarks such as Big Ben, the London eye, St Pauls cathedral, the Shard, and Tower Bridge. It is super relaxing and such a nice walk if you want to take in the sights London has to offer.
