London is one of the biggest and most thickly populated urban communities on the planet. It’s likewise a standout amongst the most well-known stops on any exploring trek, European get-away, or two week occasion. I always wanted to come to London, to experience the English lifestyle. Individuals are drawn by pictures of pubs, free museums, theater, and sovereignty. London is a social and design capital, an incredible spot to go out, and an astounding spot to consume.
Accommodation and Food
Just like everything else in London, hostels can be pricey. I paid around USD26 per night for a dorm room. However, a few other places begin at around USD17. Hotels in London anyplace in the downtown area will begin about USD130 per night and tend to go up from that point. In the event that you stay on the edge of the city, you will pay around USD80 one night. London offers all kinds of food and for every price range. Asian and English food are among the cheapest for USD8 per meal. Lunch specials starts at USD16 for a multi-course meal with a drink. French fries and fish and other pub food had cost me about the same cost. Decent restaurant with table service set me back at USD32 or more for a good meal with a beverage. However, if you feel like you want to cook, basic supplies will cost you between USD65-USD80 for every week. (Image by : business_traveler_1818 )
Take the transport or the Tube (the underground) as they are the least expensive manifestations of transportation in London. Fares begin at USD3, or USD6 without an oyster card (pre-paid card). Oyster Cards and Underground tickets are also valid on the buses. I rented a bicycle from one docking station in the capital city. Nonetheless, be cautioned that London’s roads are not the least demanding to explore and there is far to go before London is cyclist cordial. The Heathrow Express’ fare is USD32.
Money Saving Tips
Visit all the free display centers. Museum of London, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the British History Museum are all free. Learn more about British history without spending too much money. The Tate Modern and the National Gallery are also free-of-charge. Purchase an Oyster Card for a week access to metro system. Do people watch in the Flower Market, the Portobello Market and the Camden Market. I took incredible photographs, and experience the lifestyle of London without using a dime. I also watched the changing of the gatekeepers at Buckingham Palace at 11:30 a.m. and the stallion guards at Whitehall at 11:00 a.m. for free. London is a gigantic city and there are wonderful noteworthy structures all around. Actually, London beat me. I discovered this city to be completely un-walkable. I strolled for four hours and scarcely made a gouge on the course I was going to take (henceforth the need to get the Oyster Card.) (image by : 401(K) 2012 )
