Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about National Gallery:

"London is vast. You don't say where you will be based, or what you'll be doing on the day, so I'm going to assume you'll be somewhere in Central London. 'Affordable' varies from person to person so, again, I must assume that my idea of 'affordable' is roughly the same as yours. Do look at pubs as well as restaurants. The vast majority of pubs offer good, affordable food for lunch as well as in the evening. For either lunch or dinner I can personally recommend the Holly Bush in Hampstead:  "  See More

"Here are more to add on to the list: 1. Borough Market - for the history, food and coffee (coffee at Monmouth Coffee). 2. Fortnum & Mason gift and specialty shop. 3. Kensington Palace. 4. Gluten-free Afternoon Tea at Ting Shangri-la at The Shard. You get fantastic views of London."  See More

"From there it depends on who I'm with but you can't go wrong with the British Museum (Stop OA), the Victoria & Albert Museum, or the National Gallery which are all free to visit and top notch."  See More

"If so, check out the National Gallery."  See More

"The National Gallery and the Victoria & Albert Museum for museums (stop by the V & A Cafe for scones and the view)."  See More

"Beyond that, it's going to depend on your interests, London has many free museums that are world class but if you don't like art museums, there is no sense in telling you to go to the National Gallery."  See More

"Lots of museums in London (such as the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Gallery) offer this for free, providing the bag isn't too big (as in, a day pack, not a 3-month backpack)."  See More

"Right in Trafalgar Square, across from the National Gallery, take the #24 Bus going to Hampstead and you can get off at Camden Market and experience the Horse Tunnel Market crafts/ everything before and grab some awesome street food."  See More

"Hi, Donna, Not sure what your interests are, but I just happened to be helping a friend who was going there with a group of many different ages and interests so see if any of these appeal to you! For mainstream attractions: Tower Of London don’t let the high admission fee discourage you from coming here. It’s an absolutely incredible experience that will give you a sense of history like almost no other place in London. If you can, send away for tickets to see the Ceremony of the Keys—it’s incredible. It’s a nighttime ceremony that’s been going on for 700 years and it’s not easy to get to see (the tickets go months in advance but try it anyway). Here’s the link to apply for tickets:>"  See More

"Trafalgar Square has the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery is just behind"  See More

"As Colleen and Nathanel have mentioned, most all of the best museums are free - National Gallery, The British Museum, etc."  See More
