If you’re looking to experience the wonders of London without breaking the bank, taking advantage of the amazing Park Grand deals is a great way to start. To help keep things under budget we’ve also put together a list of free things for you to do while at the Kensington Hotel London.

Street Art

It’s the alternative culture in London that makes the city so unique and the underground art scene has grown rapidly over the last decade. After the rise of Banksy, more and more urban artists have taken to the streets to showcase their talent and add a touch of colour and inspiration to the walls of the city. Take a stroll around areas like Camden and Brixton to find some of the best graffiti in the city. Be sure to take your camera along.

Platform 9¾

King’s Cross Station, London

Wannabe wizards and aspiring witches can escape into the amazing world of Harry Potter and snap a picture of themselves pushing their trolley through the invisible doorway onto the fictional platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station. This is an amazing experience for youngsters and is totally free. However, the shop next to the photo spot may end up costing Harry Potter fans a penny or two.  

St Paul’s Cathedral
