Free Things To Do In London

The Natural History Museum

this is my absolute favourite place to go. It is massive. There are 36 free galleries inside the museum. The museum is divided into various colour zones: the blue zones feature life from large mammals to dinosaurs; the red zone focuses on the creation of the Earth; the green zone features the Earth’s evolution and the orange zone features scientists at work. It opens from 10 am every day, not sure on Bank Holidays. And you can find it at Cromwell Rd, London SW7 things to do in london - natural history museum

Green Park

Located right next to Buckingham Palace. It has masses of grass and would be amazing to sit on in the summer. There are lots of parks connected to each other within walking distance. Such as St.James’ park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. All of which are beautiful!

Buckingham Palace

Right next to Green Park. You can watch the changing of the guards here. From 11.30am-12.15 pm April-end of July. Alternate days, the rest of the year weather permitting. It does cost money if you want to watch this but just to stare at Buckingham Palace is enough.

Picadilly Circus

You could combine this one with Oxford street as they lead into each other. Picadilly Circus is where the advert billboards are. The light from these is amazing. They have recently been given an upgrade and I have to admit they look good! Oxford Street is where all the major shops are located. Just be warned though this area can get incredibly busy. Sometimes it feels like you are swimming against the tide.
