6 free adventures for hanging out in London this week

The average Londoner’s day is roughly 15 hours long. Which means, subtracting the eight hours of work time, there’s seven hours of the day to explore the sights, smells and social spaces of the greatest city on earth.

However, it’s expensive to do pretty much anything in a city. That’s why we made an effort to find the most fun, most free things to do in London just for you – here’s six of them.

1. The Sky Garden

The worst part of the London skyline might be the Walkie Talkie building. Luckily, you can book free visits to the top of The Sky Garden to see London in all it’s glory without the upside-down monstrosity you’re standing atop blocking your view.

2. St Dunstan in the East

Right below the Walkie Talkie, there’s a hidden church that goes by the name of St Dunstan in the East. In the midst of the metropolis, this slice of Narnia is a welcome break from the grey pallet with scenic greenery spread across the almost 1000 year old site.

3. Spitalfields City Farm

Another slice of nature hidden in the mire of congestion, around the Brick Lane there is a fully functional farm. With goats, horses and chickens – Spitalfield’s City Farm is a surreal but amazing place to swing by on a sunny afternoon.

4. Brick Lane Graffiti Walk

Embrace the DIY culture of London’s coolest street with the Brick Lane Street Art Tour. The tour starts from Aldgate East and lasts about an hour. It’s technically free but it’s encouraged to tip your guide – they are very knowledgeable.

5. Angel Comedy Club

Renowned in London as the best stop for an evening of free entertainment. The Angel comedy night is a balls-to-the-wall giggle-fest featuring the best (and worst) of local stand-ups with nothing to lose but your attention.

6. Serpentine Galleries

An awesome display of modern art in the middle of London’s nicest lake view. With constantly revolving exhibitions and an architecturally stunning outside cafe, check out the Serpentine if you’re ever on a high culture streak.
