London is one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities from Europe, and, if you hurry me, of the world. Walking through its streets you can hear an endless variety of languages, and people of all skin colors wear from elegant designer suits to alternative clothes belonging to the last urban tribe that has become fashionable. London is busy, colorful, music, financial center, historic buildings, palaces, alternative markets, the Thames, theater, royalty, museums, fashion ... A city of a thousand faces waiting to be discovered by tourists and locals in equal parts, because even if you live in it, there will always be corners that will have escaped your gaze.

Most of the travel to London They usually last a few days, because despite how much there is to see, it is considered as one of the most expensive cities in Europe. However, there are many things to do in London without spending a single pound.

From among them I have chosen a few that will surprise you and like you equally:

Stroll through the Camden Town market and enjoy street performers

Camden Town

The Camden Town market is the British icon of alternative urban culture. Since you leave the subway station of the same name, your senses are invaded by colors, smells and music of all kinds. Sitting in a corner and watching the diverse personal that parades between shops and stalls, is something that can entertain you throughout the morning. Most stalls show old records, gothic and alternative clothes, tattoo and piercing workshops and the like. In the main square you can try meals from different countries for a few pounds.

On sunny days, I advise you to buy a tray of Asian food and sit by the canal or at one of the wooden tables. There are other small restaurants scattered around the arcades of the different streets of Camden, but the stalls in the square offer higher quality food.

One of the stores to highlight is that of Cyberdog, where electronic music sounds at maximum power while gogós dance between shelves of clothes that seem taken from the Blade Runner movie.

Another attraction, both Camden and other neighborhoods - such as Covent Garden - is to enjoy the street performers Music, humor and juggling shows for an audience that does not have to choose an armchair.

London in its purest essence.
