Visiting Cluster places
There is this obvious idea of planning the trip before entering the city and it is indeed very helpful. Since, London has a huge number of attractions and places to visit, travelers can easily fall into the trap of seeing everything at once and burning out without exploring properly. Thus, they should prioritize on visiting such locations that have maximum number of attractions nearby. This will not only save time but also a lot of money and there will be lesser or almost no zigzagging at all during the trip.
Using cycles to travel through London
It is one of the best ideas for exploring the great city. London has a system of providing cheap bicycles known as “Boris Bikes” that allow people to pedal their way through the city. These bikes can be picked up from any of the docking stations for less than about two pounds and park them back into another one at the destination. There are about seven hundred fifty docking stations and more than one thousand bikes. For travelers, this can be an excellent opportunity to explore every bit of London.
Go beyond the central regions
People usually only explore the center of the city and end up battling the crowds and wasting a lot of time and peace. Exploring some different sides of the city can be a different story altogether. Areas like Shoreditch, Hampstead, Greenwich, Stratford and Richmond have a lot to offer like massive parks, riverside pubs, top view of London city, local cuisines, Aquatic center of London and the epic Hampstead Heath.
Getting cheap accommodation
Acquiring cheap accommodation in such a busy city is not easy. However, one can lookout for some cheap hostels for tourists or if they don’t like the dorm beds then they can go for some capsule beds in some private dorms with multi-bed facilities.
