Despite excessive transportation and accommodation costs, London has significant advantages for tourists as most museums are free.

London is an expensive city and this is especially apparent when looking for accommodation in the city centre. Although it is sometimes challenging to find a double room in a central hotel for less than £90 a night, if you book several months in advance, it is possible to find affordable prices.
