Life in London never stops… days and nights can be packed full of fun activities. For students, this means having the opportunity to network with classmates and discover the sights and sounds of this magnificent city. And, for those travelling from overseas, it means being able to familiarise themselves with the many wonders of the capital. Of course, getting the best deal is important too, which is why we’ve detailed some of the cheapest days and nights out to enjoy in London.
Sightseeing in London
Sightseeing in London doesn’t have to cost the Earth. In fact, soaking up some culture, the sights, and the sounds of the capital doesn’t have to cost anything at all. Some of London’s biggest attractions are, in fact, free to enter and enjoy, meaning you have an abundance of magnificent things to see and do without spending a penny. For example, the following museums and galleries enable you to explore free of charge, or for a small (optional) donation:
It doesn’t have to be just culture that offers a great deal, as London features many open spaces and beautiful parks in which to unwind and escape from the stresses of study. Choose from Hyde Park to Hampstead Heath and Green Park to St James’ Park, getting out and about among London’s stunning natural greenery is simple and doesn’t cost a thing.
Of course, the changeable weather of the UK often means outdoor adventures are off limits, so being able to find cheap alternatives is essential. Art exhibitions and live shows – from music to performance art – are held year-round throughout the capital, meaning there is always something to see and enjoy during your free study time, irrespective of the weather.
Cheap Nights Out in London
As day gives way to night, you’d be forgiven for thinking that all the free and cheaper entertainment is replaced by high-cost theatre productions and expensive sporting attractions. But you’d be wrong. While there are a lot of activities which result in you spending your hard-earned money, there is just as much to enjoy for next to nothing. From cheap restaurants catering for all tastes to pop-up bars, live music and stand-up comedy.
Life in London really does offer something for all tastes and all budgets. In fact, you may be hard-pressed to fit it all in during your time in the capital.
