London Budget Travel Tips

  • In London it is cheaper to travel on the buses rather than the Tube, and if you get the front seat of a double decker bus you get to see where you are going, and way better value than the Tour Buses!! Tip from aboo10
  • If you are feeling adventurous, head for places like South London's Brixton Market (they also have a farmer's market first Saturday of every month), in the market itself there are some great restaurants tucked away with some great food for really affordable prices. Tip from moshimoshineko
  • London only breaks the bank if you get trapped in the tourist hot spots. If you want a reasonable night out check out some of the quirky bars in Camden...not to mention Camden market has some great bargains. Tip from MaryyyB

London

London is a cultural melting pot where people from around the world have found a home, a legacy of their colonialist past and a great contributor to its vibrant culture today: according to the 2001 census, over a quarter of the population of London was born outside the United Kingdom.

Overall I thought the hostel had a great vibe, had young and older crowd, great location by Hyde park and walking distance to station! Rooms were clean and tidy with bathroom in room so more privacy! Saved money with breakfast and dinner included so I thought great value for the money I paid! Would go there again ... more

    I forgot to ask in my other post. Who knows of a nice, decent price hotel in London, close to some good attractions? I am travelling alone and want somewhere safe, which isn't to far away from a few attractions. Walking distance I guess. What are the best things to see in London - apart from the London eye ...

The room was very very small, but it is clean and it is near the Hyde park, so we walked to the center. The breakfrest is great. As room, the bathroom was also very small.

Our room was in the basement and the Internet didn't work there. Also we didn't have a remote control. The staff could've been a bit more friendly and more approachable.
