Sights that are SOMETIMES free in London

London for free
Always Free
Sometimes Free
Parks & Gardens
Any day on which entrance to a normally pricey sight is free is never a secret. Expect a crush of visitors, especially of schools on class trips and other cash-strapped groups. Sure you get in for free, but the crowds may not make it worth your while. At the very least, try to show up when the doors open so you can be at the head of the surging masses. Caveat emptor.

Free Mon.

Guildhall Gallery ( - City-run gallery of portraits and views of London life from the 16th century on, plus plenty of Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite paintings and sculptures.
