A small and nifty guide to the best free activities across London – covering everything from architectural gems and panoramic views, to green spaces, galleries and unique events.

In a bustling and often expensive metropolis, being able to make the most out of what this city has to offer can sometimes be challenging.
Free London takes in the full breadth of experiences on offer, including centuries-old traditions, the world’s best art, hidden green spaces and unexpected views of the city. See London from a new perspective and start planning your next day out – for free.

Perfect for tourists, visitors and Londoners alike.

I spent the first 24 years of my life living not far outside London, so I have done a lot of the sights either by myself or acting as a guide for visiting friends from overseas. However, I always like to take a glance at guidebooks offering suggestions for free and/or quirky things to do there, because I often come across one or two new ideas for future trips, and Free London was no exception in that respect. Although I already knew about 75-80% of the activities mentioned, there were a few places I hadn't heard of before, so I made a note of them for whenever COVID-19 lets us travel again. Overall, the suggestions in this book offered a good mix of different activities, ranging from the more traditional tourist suggestions to hidden gems, making it a worthwhile read for both tourists and locals looking for something new to see and do. The information was simply and concisely presented, accompanied by some lovely images. This book gets a solid 4 stars from me.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
