A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called TRAVELING UNDER OUR PRIVILEGES. I was pleased that I had several emails expressing thanks for my suggestions for a modest visit to London. It is true the the Queen’s Gallery charges. The Tower of London charges. Kensington Palace charges. The Summer Opening at Buckingham Palace charges. This is understandable as these tremendous “piles” cost great amounts of money to keep open for the public to see. Ok, you have 4/5 destinations which charge. Build them into your itineraries and planning. But, look what is free! I don’t think you could do it all during a week’s visit to this exciting city. I prefer walking, wandering through the city with my camera, and I have a fabulous time. I might throw in a boat ride down the Thames to Greenwich or a visit to Westminster Abbey, but I have not found “touring” in London to be any more expensive than any other city around the world. In fact, I have found that there are more “free” visits in London than any other city of its size, culture, and history Check out this list of “FREE STUFF.” Get a week’s OYSTER TRAVEL CARD and you are set.
