Free places of interest in London:

The museums and many art galleries are free. Enjoy London's parks in the summer, Green Park, St. James' park, Regents Park, Hampstead Heath, all for free.

Free sightseeing walks:

Walk part of the Thames Path (signposted, along the Thames), perhaps from Canary Wharf to Tower Bridge and take in the impressive skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, Docklands, St. Katherine's Dock and Dickens Inn, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Entry to the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge Experience is by ticket only. A visit to the Tower of London is well worth the money.

Or, walk from the Tower of London to the Millenium Bridge, passing the Fire of London memorial en-route. Pop into St. Pauls cathedral, then use the Millenium Bridge to cross the river and visit Tate Modern art gallery. Note the Shakespearean Globe Theatre (take the tour if you wish) to the left. Continue along the Southbank and enjoy the various free street entertainers. The Southbank is very pretty at night with blue lights interwoven in the trees. There is an excellent view to be had for free from the top of the OXO tower - just take the lift. The view is equally good to that of the London Eye and you don't have to queue. You may wish to visit the London Aquarium. Cross Westminster Bridge for the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey and Cathedral.

There are numerous other good places to explore in London, walking if free and often the best method of seeing London. The open-topped sightseeing buses have their uses but do allow plenty of time because you will spend much of your journey stuck in traffic.
