Central London

London has plenty of museums and art galleries that are FREE so it does not have to be an expensive city to visit. However, you may have to pay extra for special exhibitions. Also to keep costs down if you are staying for a while, check out the Oyster card for the tube and the London Sightseeing Pass for attractions that have entrance fees.

London's most popular attractions include the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, London Museums and Art Galleries, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey.

There are also many parks and green open spaces around London that provide great places to relax, such as Hyde Park, Regents Park and St James Park. So even though you are in one of the major capitals of the world, you can still feel as if you are in the countryside.
