Money Saving tips for London

I know its expensive here and London is even more expensive so here are some ideas on making the most:

  1. Buy your train ticket for off-peak times and save more with a rail card.
  2. Use the Oyster Card or Contactless card for traveling on the tube and buses. It will NEVER cost you more than a travel card but can cost you less!!!!
  3. Walk- sometimes you miss the be sights being under ground. Here is a favourite walk of mine. You see the most important sights.
  4. Don't take black cabs, but if you have to for the experience, take a short trip.
  5. Have a picnic, you don't have to carry the food with all day just pop in a grocery store and head to a park. I love to do this on a sunny day.
  6. Use your your Tescos Club Card  and Nectar points to get into places or eat out.
  7. Bring a water bottle.
  8. You can go to a show half price if you go to the ticket booth in Leicester Square. 
  9. Go to museums, most are free except for the special exhibitions.
  10. Or buy tickets here or buy standing tickets at the Shakespeare's Globe.
  11. Get into London sells tickets for Jan to Feb at a good price.
  12. Go to a free concert at Royal Opera House, National Gallery and National Theatre.
  13. Attend a talk at the British Academy.
  14. Go to the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London.
  15. Go see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.
  16. Free talks and courses on mediation here.
Hope this is enough!

All the Best!
