A trip to London doesn't have to break the bank. You and the kids can enjoy a number of incredible activities totally free of charge.
Museum of London
Get to know the capital on a whole new level at the fantastic Museum of London.
Interactive galleries guide you through the turbulent past of the city, from the first Anglo-Saxon dwellers to modern-day bankers, and from the tragic Great Fire to the momentous 2012 Olympics.
Families can stroll through Victorian Pleasure Gardens, see what London looked like before it was inhabited, and learn about the history of the Thames Valley. Afterwards, relax in the beautiful garden cafe.
The Museum of London is open daily 10am-6pm.
Kensington Gardens is one of the many wonderful outdoor spaces nestled in the bustling cityscape.
Highlights of this stunning park include the Albert Memorial, the Serpentine Gallery, the Peter Pan Statue and, of course, the Diana Memorial Playground.
All free to enter, the Royal Parks offer some beautiful sights, fresh air and a chance for the kids to blow off some steam. Be sure to check out Green Park, St. James' Park, Regents Park and Hyde Park, too.
You can enter Kensington Gardens from 6am until dusk.
This ancient market is located under the Victorian railway arches near London Bridge and is jam-packed full of delicious grub.
Of course, you'll have to hand over some pennies to taste the locally-produced, mouth-watering food and drink on offer, but it is free to wander around and take in the sights and scents.
Also, because of the diverse variety of street food available, everyone is bound to find their perfect snack.
The Full Market is open Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-5pm, Fridays 10am-6pm, Saturdays 8am-5pm and limited stalls are open 10am-5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays.
See the city at height from the terrific Sky Garden. Situated on the top decks of the Walkie Talkie building (also known as 20 Fenchurch Street), it is truly the best place in London to get a free, breathtaking view.
Although it costs nothing to pop up, you do need to book a slot to visit in advance.
Experience the Sky Garden 10am-6pm Monday-Friday and 11am-9pm on weekends. To book your slot, head to their website.
As with many of London's best galleries and cultural venues, the British Museum is completely free to look around.
Possibly one of the most popular attractions in the Big Smoke, this curation is full of incredible artefacts from all over the world. It really is the museum to beat all museums, housing Egyptian mummies, historic burial treasures and even the Rosetta Stone.
The building is actually home to eight million objects, only being capable of displaying 1% of them at any one time.
Look around the British Museum 10am-5:30pm daily and on Fridays until 8:30pm.
