When you are travelling to London on a budget there are many things you can do and see for nothing. What this means for you is, you can have fun and still keep to your travel budget. To start with you can go to a large number of art galleries for free. I will summarize a few of these for you here.

What ever sort of art you enjoy you will be able to see in in the Tate Modern and Tate Britain.

Tate Modern - Free Galleries to Visit in London

The Tate Modern is aptly named as it houses modern, contemporary works from artists all over the world. It is located on the South Bank of the River Thames just across the Millennium Bridge. There are 4 tube stations within walking distance but none of them are really close. They are St Pauls, Mansion House, Southwark and London Bridge. There is no entry fee except for special exhibitions here. So you can wander around to your hearts content and not spend a penny if you so wish. Fabulous! Is a descriptive word that springs to mind about this.

Free Entry to the Tate Britain

The Tate Britain is also aptly named as it hold collections of British art, from British artists. It is located on the River Thames at Millbank, SW1P 4RG a short walk down the river from the Houses of Parliament. The nearest tube station to it is Pimlico However, as above it is not terribly close. Inside there are 3 floors for you to explore. You will find works by J W M Turner, William Blake, Thomas Gainsborough, Henry Moore and more here. Entry is free apart from some of the special exhibitions. More about both of the above gratis galleries can be found here >>> Tate Galleries

National Portrait Gallery in London

If you are interested in seeing leading figures from British history, then a visit to the National Portrait gallery is called for. This free to enter gallery is located in St Martins Place, WC2H 0HE. The closest tube stations to it are Charing Cross and Leicester Square. It contains one of the world's biggest collections of portrait paintings. The collections start in the Middle Ages and continue all the way to recent times. The artists you will come across here may be well known, yet also may not be. This is because all of the portraits here are hung because of the importance of the person in the portrait, not the importance of the painter. Which makes a change from the norm.
