Hi everyone! I'm going to London on the 16th to the 21st for my 20th birthday! Looking for interesting things to do that don't cost a fortune as the last two times I've been, I've been doing the same sort of things of just wandering around :lol: !

Thank you in advance

See a show, go to the theatre cafe. Flight club (Victoria), Van Gogh exhibition, walk along south bank, The Globe tour, Walk up St Paul’s whispering Gallery, BB Bakery bus afternoon tea (more pricey) x x just a few….

Sky Garden - but be aware they release the tickets on Monday two weeks in advance. Or you can book a table in the bistro. Or go up there for drinks at night! Don't forget your photo ID - is required to go in.

Camden Market is fun.

Not sure it is the weather for it, or if it is running in the winter, but the Thames Rocket speedboat rides. Walk up to the top of the O2 if you have a head for heights. Have you been to the V&A museum? That's really lovely.

Also have a look for bands playing within the music genre you like.

There are tons of small museums (Sherlock holmes, keats house, freud and the foundling etc). Ally Pally, Camden locks/market, sky garden, picnic on primrose hill at sunset, regents park, London zoo, dulwich, borough market, spite fields, St pauls cathedral, Greenwich, boat ride down the themes, soho, a show, covent gardens and Shakespeare's globe to name a few. Sky garden is a must. Need to book in advance.

Queens Silver Jubilee Walk. Follow silver discs with a crown on them. The crown points in the direction of travel. Start anywhere on the route which is about 10 miles long. Goes through Parliament Square, over Lambeth Bridge and along the South Bank to Tower Bridge. Need route map from then on.

The British museum is free and the building itself is a lovely dome. The mummies and Elgin marbles are there. Also usually have an exhibition on, but will likely need to pay.

The monument to great fire of London isn’t far from Southbank for views and a few quid to get up. It is also not far from a lovely arcade. Think it’s called Burlington arcade.

Sky garden or 120 garden also in that area.

Southbank places to eat and can also get a Uber down the Thames reasonably priced.
