London, like most big cities, has a reputation for being expensive however there are a million and one things to do and see in London that are absolutely free. Most museums have free entry for their permanent collections and these are our top tips:
Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath – where films like Belle and Notting Hill were filmed, and also near the Heath’s swimmable lakes to cool off.
The Getty Images Gallery in Fitzrovia (walking distance to campus) is hosting theBeat Positive exhibition showcasing photographs from New York hip-hop’s early days.
Walk along the south bank of the Thames and visit Greenwich Park
