Have you got a trip to London coming up in 2020? Whether you are there for business or pleasure, we always recommend having a great itinerary planned out – so that you can make the most of your time in the dazzling capital. Once you’ve booked your lovely accommodation in Paddington London, you may start looking at all the experiences around you and forget about a little thing called budgeting. Too often, we have planned a jam packed itinerary in a big city, only to realise that we’ve then blown all our money on tickets and have nothing left for spontaneous fun. We want to ensure that your trip doesn;t suffer the same fate, so we have listed below our favourite of the free attractions in London – so you can save a couple of quid here and there meaning you have extra money for fun!
If you’re fortunate to be staying in the Paddington Park Hotel, then you will be in the heart of the action. Paddington is one of the best connected areas of the city, meaning that you can reach pretty much any place that your heart desires without much hassle. This includes the wonderful Museum District in Kensington. Here, you can enjoy a day of marvel and intrigue for no charge, in prolific museums such as the Natural History Musuem, the V&A and the Science Museum. One of our favourite spots for a free day in London, these estalbishments are perfect for those looking for a little calm away from the bustling streets surrounded by amazing exhibits. Also, while you’re in the area, we recommend that you include a walk through Kensington Gardens, where you can view some of the most iconic monuments and memorials in the City, in the very grounds which hold Kensington Palace – which was home to Queen Victoria, Princess Dianna and Will & Kate!
Now, this one isn’t your traditional attraction, but Brick Lane is one of the most famous streets in London. In the surrounding Shoreditch area, you can explore the streets and discover some of the best examples of Urban Art in London. Be sure to check out Grey Eagle Street, where the rooftops hold crazy statues of monsters which are looking down on you! Brick Lane is home to one of the best markets in London, and it is the heart of the Bangladeshi Community, making it a great place to experience the eclectic culture for which London is famed for. We recommend that you try to aavoid the temptation of dining in one of the fantastic restaurants near Paddington, as the curries on Brick Lane are legendary (and is perhaps the only place in the city where you can haggle for your dinner!).
The Royal Parks
The Royal Parks are perhaps the most obvious of the free attractions in London. The perfect places to unwind with a book and watch the world go by, the Royal Parks hold some pretty immense sculptures, monuments and more which make up some of the best free attractions in London. For a day out, look no further than Richmond Park, where you can spot rabbits, swans and even Red and Dawny Deer, just a short journey from your accommodation Paddington London.
