6 Free (or Almost Free!) Things To Do: London

London in the United Kingdom is up for this week’s Free Things To Do list!

1.  Tate Britain Art Gallery, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG (map)

This gallery is home to British art ranging from the 1500s to the present.  Admission is free except for major exhibits.

2. The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square (map)

The impressive National Gallery building.

More than 2,300 paintings are on display at this art gallery, and it’s almost worth visiting just to see the grand building!  Admission is free.

3.  Museum of London, London Wall, London EC2Y 5HN (map)

Admission is free to all museums in London (except for special exhibits), but this is one you should definitely have on your list.  On May 28, the Galleries of Modern London will be opening – a collection of art and objects telling the story of the city!

4.  Changing of the Guard, Buckingham Palace (map)

Watching the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace is something every London visitor simply must see.  This event occurs at 11:30 a.m. daily during the summer, and every other day in the winter.

5.  Walk Along the South Bank, (map)

Walk along the River Thames for some exercise and sightseeing at the same time!  See the South Bank Lion, the London Eye, the Imperial War Museum, and much more! Download a free South Bank tour guide from Walk This Way.

6. Westminster Abbey, 20 Dean’s Yard (map)

It’s free to see the inside of the Westminster Abbey, founded in 960.  There is a fee to visit the museum.  The College Garden and St. Margaret’s Church are also free, but accept donations to help offset the cost of upkeep.
