Everyone knows that London is one of the most expensive cities in the world and you have to be a millionaire to live and visit the metropolis. Or do you? Actually, there are plenty of places in London which are open to the public free of charge or cost almost nothing.

The problem is in knowing where these places are. While theatres and museums are heavily promoted, some of the city’s top treasures are virtually unknown.

"It is possible to wander around London, visiting galleries and historical sites without spending a penny," travel writer Paul Gogarty told the Telegraph recently.

Although St Paul’s Cathedral is known for charging a high entrance fee, many other buildings of the same period are free to explore. Those who love classical music can also catch free performances in the city. There are free lunchtime concerts at St Martin's in the Fields, while it is possible to listen to live classical music for just £10 in the National Theatre.

Of course, it is possible to spend a fortune on entertainment in London if you really want to, but just by doing a little research it is possible to explore for the day for next to nothing. Theatre goers can still find plenty of cheap and half price last minute theatre tickets at Leicester Square, and there is always some sort of transport deal on offer.
