London's  Top Free Attractions

Natural History Museum

If kids are in tow, visit the information desk to snag a free Explorer Backpack, packed with themed activity guides, binoculars, and a safari hat.


You don't have to come to this luxury paradise with a full wallet—treat it like a living museum, a prime spot for browsing over-the-top items. And at night, when the exterior is all lit up, it’s truly a sight.

Winter Wonderland

Visit Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park during the holiday season for festive family fun. General admission is free, with extra charges for the observation wheel, ice skating, or the ice kingdom.

Borough Market

Borough Market, still lively at 1,000 in 2014, offers cheeses, candy, and baked goods Wednesday through Saturday, with lunch on Mondays and Tuesdays.

British Library

With 150 million items, the British Library features treasures like the Magna Carta, John Lennon's lyrics, and Alice's Adventures manuscripts.
