What a sexy city. London has a reputation for being busy, loud and active - yes it is all of those things. However, it also has some really chill spots and hidden gems that are the best little discoveries to make. The restaurants are amazing, the shopping is outstanding and what makes it all better is the amazing transport system. You can’t get Lost on London transport, it’s all so connected. It’s a beautiful thing. If you are coming here from elsewhere in the country, you might receive a massive shock when you start hearing the prices. Yes, London is overpriced. However, there is also a lot of free fun to make around London for days when you’re skint. There are free museums, a tonne of parks and days out on the Southbank or in the West end can be nice. Also, a lot of the cheaper stuff is closer to the outskirts. I wouldn’t come to London expecting to spend all of your time in central London. Areas like New Cross are full of cheap things to do on a night out.
