Things to see in London
London has a host of free-of-charge museums worth visiting, and “Albertopolis” in South Kensington—the city’s cultural and scientific quarter—is home to many of the best. The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum are all to be found here and you can spend a day (or even two!) exploring these huge Victorian institutions without spending a single dime. Admire art from all corners of the globe, marvel at prototype steam engines, and come face to face with a life-size T-Rex before taking the short stroll to the trees and waterways of Hyde Park, where you can listen to fiery orators making their ideas known at Speaker’s Corner. A picnic, stroll, or jog in any of the city’s many parklands is a pleasant and cost-free way to spend an afternoon in London.
