1. Walking & Sightseeing
London may seem huge, but it’s actually easy for walking and of course, walking is free! One of the most popular walks is a circular walk around Westminster, which includes seeing Buckingham Palace, the iconic Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Free London Walking Tours has a selection of seven sightseeing tours, which show you the best that London has to offer.

2. Visit the Royal Observatory
Be dazzled by the moon and planets at the Greenwich Royal Observatory. Here, you can explore how scientists first mapped the seas and the stars, touch a 4.5 billion year-old asteroid and travel the Universe, whilst keeping your feet firmly on the ground. For £9.50 a ticket, this is an affordable and fascinating way of discovering the wonders of astronomy.

3. Take a Canal Boat ride
What better reason to get out and about in the sunshine than with a canal boat ride where you can see some of London’s most historic and popular attractions. The Jenny Wren is an authentically designed canal boat, running 90-minute round-trips from Camden. Sailing through London Zoo and Regent’s Park, as well as Robert Browning’s Island at Little Venice, it’s certainly a different way of seeing London and is only £12.50 for adults.

4. Explore Chinatown
If you’re looking for a vibrant change of culture, Chinatown is a diamond tucked away, full of oriental beauty and charm. In this area there is so much to see and do, with plenty of affordable and delicious eating options and lots of shops. In the evening, it becomes even more atmospheric and has plenty of bars and restaurants. Chinatown is easily accessible, placed between Leicester Square and Piccadilly tube stations.
