Budget Check

Budget Check London, England

London is one of THE cities in Europe you have to visit – due to the big international airport it's mostly actually the first city travelers come to see when entering the continent. The capital of England has a lot to offer but rumors has it that the largest city in the European Union is a pricey spot for budget travelers.

The video: “Budget Check London”

It was my first time ever that I visited the UK – I booked a cheap flight from Hamburg and asked local friends for recommendations. I didn't expect so much from the city but in the end I liked London with it's pub culture, loads of things to do and the good transportation network. Only the fact that there are no tubes running during the night is a bit disappointing if you like to have a big night out.

Sure, the Budget Check London reveals that this metropolis is one of the more expensive ones – but there are some options to keep your expenses low. After speaking to some locals I got some of the tips you can see in the video – the parliament hill for example: it is a little journey but it will be rewarded with a great view (especially in summer it's a nice trip).

If you want to see more of London: have a look at the Photo Essay “London by Instagram”. Furthermore you can find more Budget Checks in the Video section of the Navigation Bar e.g. the “Budget Check Porto”.
In case you didn't do it yet: on YouTube you can subscribe to my channel and interact as well.
