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.

    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 hotel is in a good location, they offer breakfast, with two options, included the price . The problem is the bathroom is too small and it's a little peculiar.

The location is great. Staff is really nice, and breakfast is fair. The only bad point is that bathroom was really small, but that wasn´t really a problem.

All in all a good choice to someone who wants to stay cheap and still be near to the city. The 15-bed-mix dorm was very small to so many people.
