London may well have reputation for being one of the most expensive places to visit as a tourist, but with a bit of forward planning you can find plenty of things to do for free should you visit the UK’s famous capital. There are so many ways to soak up London’s historic culture and atmosphere without spending a penny.

To start with you could choose from one of London’s free historic locations. Built in the 1830’s London’s famous Trafalgar Square is home to the iconic landmark Nelson’s Column. Nearby is the Covent Garden Market area, although known as a place for shopping and eating out you can watch some top class street entertainment here for nothing. Performers have to audition to earn their place and all are licensed so you can be sure you will be watching something a little bit more special than your average street performer.

During the summer months and every other day in the winter you can watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace and if you get there early enough may even be able to watch from the front gates of the palace. The ceremony takes place at 11.30 AM on the forecourt, inside the gates of the palace.

A great way to spend a few hours for free in London is to visit one of the city’s galleries or museums. Most of these are free to visitors although some exhibitions within will have a charge, however there will be plenty to see for free in these places. Free museums and galleries include The London Museum, The British Museum, The Science Museum, The RAF Museum, The Natural History Museum, The National Gallery, The Saatchi Gallery and The Tate Modern.

There are lots of free parks and gardens that you can visit when in London. The oldest Royal Park is St James Park where you can take in great views of Buckingham Palace. During the summer months free concerts are held at the park so it is worth taking a look at the schedule. Another Royal Park is Regents Park, which has beautifully maintained gardens including Queen Mary’s Rose Garden and the Wildlife Garden. Kensington Gardens next to Hyde Park is home to the famous Peter Pan statue and the Diana Memorial Playground.

The inside of Westminster Abbey is also free to view if you have come to attend a regular service, although it relies on admission fees to cover costs if you just want to take a look around inside. Evensong is perhaps the most well known service when the Abbey choir sing; this takes place at 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding Wednesdays) and at 3pm on Saturday and Sunday.
