Top 10 Free Attractions in London

9. Markets

London is famous for its markets, and it has quite a few. On any given weekend, and sometimes during the week, one can find new and used clothing, antiques, jewelry and accessories, fresh produce and meats, local crafts, international delicacies, and much more, rain or shine. Some markets have a specialty, and some have a little of everything. Though the markets' inventory is not free, just walking through a traditional London market is enough of a treat. Some of the best markets include Portobello Market, Camden Market, Borough Market, and Brick Lane Market.

10. Walk Along the South Bank

Walking is something you can do for free in any city, and London has some particularly special strolls. One of the best is the walk along the South Bank along the river Thames.

A comfortable stroll will take you to some of London's most significant landmarks. Walk across the Millennium Bridge, which joins the original City of London with the South Bank, and proceed down the river path to pass the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, County Hall, which houses the London Aquarium, and the London Eye, the largest Ferris wheel in the world.

All the while, St. Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, Westminster Palace, and the London Bridge stay within view. If you get tired or just want to stop and enjoy the scenery, benches line the path, and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants along the way in case you get hungry.
