If you’re on a tight budget, you may assume that taking a vacation to this stunning city can put a hole on your pocket. But did you know that you can easily find a cheap London hotel that’s both comfortable and elegant?

Instead of staying at the Oxford street or Convent Garden, try staying at Bayswater or Camden or the Hammersmith. The rooms in these places are cheaper and the neighbourhoods are filled with local pubs and restaurants that offer good dishes and shops.

When roaming in this beautiful city, it’s best if you have a free walking tour than riding on a double decker bus since it can be pricey. Also, the bus won’t let you enjoy and appreciate the city if other vehicles surround you.

Instead of availing the double decker bus tours, numerous companies promote walking tours where some are free. The tour take three hours and provides entertaining commentary from an interesting tour guide. Furthermore, you can roam around at the heart of London’s most historic spots. Tips work solely for the tour guides and it’s very much appreciated.

As for the meal, your expenses always depend on where you choose to dine. In London, pricey dishes are usually found on places with many tourist spots. To save money, it’s recommended to eat at non-touristy areas. Eat where the locals go and possibly you may find a meal that’s both delectable and affordable.

To make sure that you won’t be a victim of theft and robbery, you need to street smart especially in the city centre, even during the day. Don’t leave your mobile phones or wallet on a table of any public place. Always keep your bag close to you, don’t leave it unattended.
