Free events in London
A pretty good piece of entertainment is definitely worth paying a load. But everybody is always happy to escape the duty of being charged. Here are some ways to keep your moneybag heavy: free events in London.
Believe it or not, but top London museums are free! National Gallery, British Museum, Natural History Museum, V & A, Tate, and even Sherlock Holmes Museum will not charge you a penny. A gorgeous gift, isn't it? And a really useful one, as visiting museums is definitely one of the best things to do in London with kids one can imagine - but going out all together as a family may be challenging for your pocket.
But be careful: some temporary exhibits still should be paid for.
Festivals that flourish in London frequently have no entrance fee. Nevertheless, some fest activities do require payment. Those can include merry-go-rounds for children, different contests, certain performances and of course goods sold at fairs and alimentation at food trucks. Be ready and take with you some money.
Having a walk is normally still free ;). Why not do it in a park? You never knew, but there are about 3.000 green zones in London. Actually, half of the city is covered with parks. And having a stroll is not the only activity available there. Free concerts, yoga and jogging, festivals, eco tours, art & craft exhibitions... and many more. From Camden to Croydon, from the world famous Hyde Park and St. James Park to the smallest playground in Sutton - everybody can choose a place to entertain without a fee.
- Monuments and attractions.
A logical addition to the previous point: nobody will charge you for observing the Big Ben. (From a distance). Monuments, statues, installations please the eye every here and there. Enjoy them for free.
Free movie screenings take place every summer all around London and its boroughs. Amazing views, like the London skyline along the Thames, cherish the eye along with the gems of cinematography. Special screenings usually mean special films: it is classics. But some premieres come to the rooftops, too. Imagine hugging your beloved one in a comfy deck chair under the deep late-summer sky, sipping a glass of wine... Well, wine is unlikely to be free. But if they try to charge you for a blanket - laugh in their faces and wrap yourself in a scarf.
- TV show tapings.
We saved you the best for last. Wanna be a TV star? Well, that would be too good to be true, especially free of charge. But to come into the spotlight for a second or two is highly possible! And even if you do not get your minute of fame, you will have a chance to see in person all those TV stars! This delicacy is possible at TV show tapings. Most of them are free, but you will have to apply in advance / win a lottery / stand in long a line. Difficult, but real.
