activités à Londres à moins de 50 euros

How to enjoy London without spending too much? Here you have 5 activities to do for less than 50 euros.

Oh London! Big Ben, the City, Buckingham Palace or the Palace of Westminster… An unmissable city that we often discover on school trips and to which we return later as a family or for business. But now, as in all capitals, the lower activity puts a strain on the budget.

Some museums are expensive, not to mention food and transportation. However, there are some very affordable activities, good plans for less than 50 euros that allow you to discover and enjoy the city without spending a lot of money. Let me guide you…

1. Follow in the footsteps of celebrities

If there are two characters that stick to the skin of this city, they are Harry Potter and the most fatal Jack the Ripper. We find the trace from the first to the king cross rail hub, a stone’s throw north of the British Museum. We immerse ourselves once again in the universe of the hero imagined by JK Rowling in the Harry Potter Shop, of course, and in its famous platform 9/4 where you can take a souvenir photo at a lower cost. I do not hide from you that sometimes the place is a bit crowded!

For fans of unsolved crimes, nothing better than a road trip at dusk to the places once visited, knife in hand, by the man nicknamed Jack the Ripper. It all happens in the White Chapel area, not far from the Tower of London. Walk the streets that were once the hunting ground of the most famous serial killer. Anxiety guaranteed!

For less than €10 you will have a return metro ticket!

2. Explore the city by bus

No, I’m not talking about a tourist bus tour with a ticket of more than 100 euros, but about getting lost in London! Even if it’s about visiting London, you can also do it on a Routemaster, that old bus of the same scarlet red as the telephone boxes and also called a double-decker bus. Being equipped with an Oyster Card, which is quite affordable, boarding these mammoths of London’s public transport is a must.

Eye, most have been modernized. So for a seat in an old-school Routemaster, I recommend Line 15, which runs from the Tower of London to Trafalgar Square via St. Paul’s Cathedral. Direct boarding via the rear platform and ready for a visit of almost half an hour at the pace of London traffic.

3. Travel inside Covent Garden

Lover of music, spices and old books? Covent Garden is the place for you. I wholeheartedly recommend this old market adjoining Saint Paul’s Cathedral in the heart of London.

The Apple Garden has preserved its freshness of yesteryear and still offers local products that will delight the palate of any gourmet. Better yet, there is always a group playing a tune or a concert open to all that moves its viewers.

If you pass, take a Cafe Chez Antoinettesuch a cute place!

Between melodies and smells, an hour or two spent in this place will surely make you forget the often gloomy weather of the capital, and without necessarily spending a dime.

4. Take to the skies at the Sky Garden

In London is the Shard, the tallest building in Europe that reaches a height of 310 meters and offers an impressive view of the city from the south bank of the Thames. Yes, but here it is, I won’t hide from you that to access it you have to pay about 30 pounds, which is not cheap if you come with your family… Especially when you know that on the other side you will find Sky Garden and its famous Sky Pod Bar !

Located on the top floor of the skyscraper known as Walkie-Talkie, it also offers a sensational view of the capital. And I assure you that it is largely high enough! The garden is completely open to the public. You will be able to see in an instant all the monuments that make up the beauty of London and gaze behind huge windows at the ships sailing below. The only restriction? Remember to register for the free visit on the official Sky Garden website!

5. Just enjoy

Why pay to admire? I must admit that the streets of London are so atypical that it is absolutely useless to spend even the smallest ticket to enter somewhere when everything is visible from the outside. A simple stroll through Camden Town is enough to convince you.

North of the city and on the edge of Regent’s Park, this mecca of punk, goth, disco and even now anti-globalization cultures will surprise those who are willing to take the trouble to raise their heads. Facades decorated with labels or sculptures, each one more psychedelic than the last.

Flea market atmosphere, young population… Everything is there to have a great time, and why not see the houses where Charles Dickens lived and Amy Winehouse left us.

Once again here, a simple round trip on the metro and the trick is done at the budget level!
