London for Free! House Swap Holiday

Posted by kattedonn on June 26th, 2014

Stay in one of the world's most exciting cities without paying anything for accommodation - that's right stay in London for free! Like most major cosmopolitan cities London can be expensive, especially its hotels and holiday rentals. The cost of accommodation can put visiting London out of reach for many people. However it doesn't have to be that way, by arranging a house swap holiday you can enjoy totally free accommodation while visiting this amazing city. It is a real pity not to take advantage of vacation home swap and the advantages it provides.

See Even More

By enjoying free accommodation you can cut your holiday costs in half which means you’ll have more money to spend visiting London’s famous attractions, more money to spend in London’s famous shops… or you may even be able to extend your holiday stay even more time in London! All that is possible thanks to vacation home swap.

You'll be able to see all the major sites, such as the Tower of London, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye and the British Museum. It’s also rewarding to get off the busy tourist trail and dig deeper into the history, quirkiness, and uniqueness that makes up the multi-cultural melting pot of the city. Head north to the leafy area of Highgate with its village feel and very interesting Highgate Cemetery (taking the tour is well worth it). After visiting the cemetery why not stop for some tea and cake at the quaint High Tea of Highgate.

In the east London area of Chingford, you'll find a real Tudor hunting lodge surrounded by ancient forest. Henry VIII built to lodge in 1543 and today it is a fine example of Tudor history. Despite this, Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, is still a hidden gem.

The pretty south London suburb of Greenwich, you'll find the National Maritime Museum, the impressive Cutty Sark sailing boat, Greenwich market and the Royal Observatory. This is the only place in where you can be in the past, present, and future at the same time, for it is here that Greenwich Meridian, zero longitude sits. The observatory also contains an interesting museum of maritime and astronomical equipment and history. You will be pleased to discover that vacation home swap is a hassle free experience, one you will be eager to repeat.

London has some beautiful neighbourhoods that, while they are densely populated, still have a distinct village feel.
