Save money when visiting London

London is a great city to visit, be it a day, a weekend or a week long! But it can be costly too. Here  are some ideas on how to save money when visiting London with your faimly and having lots of fun at the same time.


Some places to visit in London for free, would be, Hyde park this is one of the greatest city parks in the world it is covering 350 acres of land and has 4000 trees in total. This park has it all, from swimming to skating, from cycling to boating and even a Pirate themed playground for the little ones. You can easily spend a whole day in the park doing all sorts of activities.

Close to Hyde park you can find Green Park and StJames' park, both close to Buckingham palace and great places to explore on a sunny day.


Top of my list is The British museum, this museum was founded in 1753 and holds over 2 million years of human history, It has the Rosetta stone, the Parthenon sculptures, this place has it all and it is free. Plus is not far from Oxford Street so you can combine a bit of shopping with culture!

The science museum is a child friendly place with fun activities that will entertain and teach your children but it is not only based on children, it also covers Space to Psychology, this museum will provide enjoyment for the whole family and even better, it has free entry.
