I went to London in April with two of my friends, and as it was our first real trip (without our parents) and that we're all still students, we didn't have a lof of money to spend, but we wtill wanted to have a good time! So here are 4 spots you should visit if you're going to London and don't have millions to spend (and even if you do!)
There's a building in the City, where they've set up an inside garden at the top floor of! So not only do you have a 360-view of the whole city, but you also get to spend a nice moment in a garden... in a building... in the middle of the British capital... No big deal! It's free, all you have to do is book in advance for a date and time, and then show up and you're good to go!
This is where we stayed for the five days we were in London. The first thing that brough us there, was the fact that it was really cheap, compared to other hotels in London! We had a small room for three, with a sink to brush our teeht and all of that, and then there were communal showers, breakfast was included, we just had to come down to the communal kitchen! It's 5 minutes away from King's Cross which was really convenient because we just had to walk to the subway station in the morning, and we could be anywhere in the city in no time at all!
Although we didn't have a lot of money, we still wanted to go out and eat a fish and chips once, because what's a trip to England without that?? So we found this little pub, three steps away from where we were staying, and it was just exactly what we were looking for! It was super unexpensve, and it totally looked like an authantic british pub where people gather around to drink bear and watch the football game! I loved it!
I'm a tea drinker, that's no secret at all! And this place pretty much looked like heaven to me! There was all kind of tea in there, like whatever you can imagine, it's in there! You can taste a lot of them (meaning you actually spend HOURS in here!) and I found that it was also a good place to buy gifts for my family (little biscuits, hot chocolate...) and now I'm just sad that we don't have that shop in France!
