A large square full of life and street artists doing everything from singing to graffitis. Go there, sit on the stairs and enjoy the vibe for free

The National Gallery has some excellent paintings collections and is free to visit. The additional bonus is that every summer, the London Symphony Orchestra offers a free open-air concert there. After your visit, stroll to Chinatown for some food.

“Another location with a long association with British royalty, Westminster Abbey stands on a site that's been associated with Christianity since the early 7th century. Officially known as the Collegiate Church of St. Peter in Westminster, Westminster Abbey was founded by Edward the Confessor in 1065 as his place of interment. From his burial in 1066 until that of George II almost 700 years later, most sovereigns were not only crowned here but they were buried here, too. More recently, it's become famous as the preferred location for Royal Weddings.”
