5 further free things to do in London

Westminster Abbey - photo by J.SalmoralSummer in London is full of activities. Most expensive, but plenty for the perfect price of free which you can do. Yesterday and the day before, we presented 5 free things to do in London and 5 more free things to do in London. Today, we're presenting the final 5 free activities.

Walk along the Thames to see the city's top attractions

Go for a walk from Westminster Bridge along London's River Thames to London Bridge and you'll see a host of the city's top attractions without spending anything. This includes Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Gherkin Building, St Paul's Cathedral and Tower Bridge.

Go to the recording of a TV Show



Just like in America, if you want to be in the audience of a TV show, be it a sitcom, game show or other, you can get tickets for free! All you have to do is visit TVrecordings.com or BBC.co.uk/tickets to see what's available.

Enjoy choir singing in Westminster Abbey

While visiting one of London's most famous attractions may cost £10.00 during the day, if you leave your visit until when 'Evensong' takes place every evening at 5.30pm you won't have to pay anything. Not only that, you'll be treated to the sounds of the Abbey's choir too.

See if up and coming comedians can put a smile on your face

While London is full of comedy clubs, many of these expect you to pay for the privilege of having your funny bone tickled. But there are some that don't. The Theatre Royal Stratford (Gerry Raffles Square, Stratford) has free comedy nights every Monday night, while on Wednesdays you get to choose between the Comedy Cafe (66 Rivington St) in The City, or 'Mirth Control' at The Lower Ground Bar (269 West End Lane) in Hampstead.

See London's most famous sights

Don't forget that many of London's landmarks are free. This includes Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square, not to mention suburbs like Camden Town and Notting Hill.

Free for all!

Great to see free stuff that will really make you enjoy London. London is a great place and there is so much you can do even if you don't have a dollar in your pocket.

I didn't know you could be a part of television audience for free - that sounds interesting and worth doing at least once in your lifetime.

And who wouldn't mind having a good laugh with comedians for free!!

Free Fun in Jolly Old England

Free is good! It sounds as if I could fill up a couple of days being entertained and taking in the sites of London without emptying my wallet! What better way to soak up some English culture than by visiting some iconic landmarks like Big Ben or attending the filming of a British sitcom or even sampling some British humor? History and modern culture, all for the tantalizing price of nothing. Great guide!
