Most people usually go away so that they can think of nothing, leave all their troubles behind and charge their batteries on a deserted beach. However, as we grow older, we tend to forget how exciting it can be to go on an adventure, be spontaneous and not have every single thing planned out in advance. From time to time, you should allow yourself a getaway such as this, especially if you’re working with a tight budget.

Having a small traveling budget isn’t a legitimate excuse not to travel – you just need to change your criteria. For example, instead of being fascinated with an exquisite five course meal in a five star hotel, you should look for joy in completely different things, like wonders of nature and artistic soul food. Sure, London has many luxurious attractions, but if you set them aside, you’ll be surprised by what is left. Best of all – you’ll be able to visit them for free.

British Museum


If you’re up for a quick two million year tour through human history, the British Museum is the right kind of place for you. Other than their regular collection, there is always some kind of exhibition going on. You should definitely check their website, so that  you know what to expect. Also, this museum is really family-friendly, so if you decide to bring your kids as well there will be many interesting activities you can participate in. They offer free entry, but you should know that most people leave a £5 donation.

Natural History Museum

If you’d rather have an adventure and find out more about wildlife, you should definitely pay a visit to the Natural History Museum. You’ll be amazed by their Dinosaurs gallery, and of course, the notorious Diplodocus skeleton won’t leave you indifferent. Even the entrance has that wow effect – their blue whale model is the first thing you’ll see in the Centre Hall. Other than special exhibits, you’ll be able to enjoy these wonders of nature absolutely free.

During your stay in London, you should pick out a day when you’re all fresh and rested, free of obligations and eager to learn more about the Western European history through art! There are more than two thousand pieces of art from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. This enormous amount of historical art pieces will leave you breathless. There are no entry charges, except if you want to see the special exhibitions.

Science Museum

This is the most visited Science Museum in Europe – it displays over fifteen thousand items, one of which is the Apollo 10 command capsule. If you’re into science, you should definitely take this free opportunity to learn more about the progress of science through the ages. You can also enjoy their incredible 3D and 4D simulations, and experience what it’s like to fly with the Royal Air Force Red Arrows. Naturally, those simulators will require paying for a ticket, but you’ll have a great time even if you decide not to try them out!

Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens


If you’d like to get in touch with your childhood, there’s a world-wide famous statue of Peter Pan in the Kensington Gardens that you must see. This is the cheapest and the most beautiful way to have a great time with your friends or family! There are all sorts of budget travel tips such as this one, like renting an apartment, so that you don’t have to eat out during the whole stay or pay for a bland room in a hotel. Do your research before the actual trip to find the best options.

No matter what brought you to London – business or pleasure – these five locations are a definite must-see. However, visiting all of them will take a lot of time and energy. It’s a good idea to create some kind of route, so that you don’t miss out on anything. One last piece of advice – consult the locals about the best restaurants that aren’t pricey, because they will point you in the right direction. Have fun!
