10 FREE THINGS TO DO IN LONDON

In this video I talk about typical London attractions like the markets, Buckingham Palace, the usual tourist locations like Piccadilly Circus, and the more unusual things to do in London like seeing what East London has to offer and what to do in London for free at night. You don't need money to have a great time in London! As a backpacker, I know how great it is to do things for free in a new city. So I thought I'd share my knowledge of the city I know best, to help all of you who travel to London have a fun-filled, inexpensive city break! Here’s where we go in the video: 1. Museums - Natural History, Tate Modern, British Museum 2. Parks - Hyde Park, Regent's Park, Richmond Park 3. Markets - Camden, Portobello, Columbia Road 4. Royals - Buckingham Palace, St James's Park 5. Embankment at night 6. Southbank 7. Sunrise at Primrose Hill 8. East London - Brick Lane, Box Park, Chance Street 9. Window Shopping - Harrods, Selfridges 10. Tourist Snaps - Southbank, Chance Street, London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Abbey Road London is big! There are a lot of activities, fun things, for adults, for kids, and a lot of them are expensive. But if you plan well and think ahead there’s so much London has to offer that’s cheap or free. This video’s not meant to be a definitive guide as to things to do in London, it’s just my advice about what I have enjoyed or I think is fun to do for free.

These are some things to know before your first visit to London. My ten tips will make your visit to London easier and help you not stick out as a tourist. London underground tips, how to tip in restaurants, and how to pronounce some of the trickier names, and more.

**Updates and corrections:
- They call it the River Thames (not Thames River)
- For all oyster cards, zone charges have increased. For example, travel via zones 1-2 for the day (plus any bus rides) it costs £6.60 the most for that day
