London
You might think London is an expensive place to stay, but not when you use one of YHA's excellent hostels. Located near some of London's best-known landmarks, the only problem with booking a stay at one of our London hostels is deciding which one to choose! One of the world's biggest, most diverse and most vibrant cities, there is so much going on in London, which is what makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The list of attractions is almost endless, from places which explore the city's rich history and teach you about every subject you could ever want to learn about, to fun activities and places to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet - London is proud of its open spaces. There's so much to do, in fact, that you could be taking holidays in London for the rest of your life and still not get bored!
Expert Views: 
<p><strong>Five free things to do in London</strong></p> <p><strong>Museums</strong></p> <p>London's list of museums rivals any from any city across the globe - and the best ones are free. Family breaks in London should feature a trip to the British Museum, learning about the world around us at the Science Museum or seeing some ancient artefacts at the Natural History Museum.</p> <p><strong>BFI Mediatheque</strong></p> <p>At the home of the British film industry is the Mediatheque suite, which provides free access to thousands upon thousands of archived television shows, films and documentaries - it's the ideal place to get lost in Britain's rich film and TV history.</p> <p><strong>Ceremony of the Keys</strong></p> <p>For something uniquely London, check out the ceremony of the keys at the Tower of London. It's a ritual that has gone on uninterrupted for over 700 years and there's nothing like it anywhere else.</p> <p><strong>All Hallows Church</strong></p> <p>A stunning church just next to the Tower of London, All Hallows features architecture which is over 1,000 years old and the crypt contains a wonderful insight into Roman-era London.</p> <p><strong>The National Portrait Gallery</strong></p> <p>There's no better place in Britain to enjoy artworks from throughout British history than the National Portrait Gallery, from great kings and queens to modern celebrities.&nbsp;</p>
