Looking forward to the Early May Bank Holiday on Monday 7th, but don't want to break the bank?

We've picked out 5 of the best attractions London has to offer this May Day which will cost absolutely nothing to attend.


Deptford Market Yard

Located next to Deptford station, the Market Yard is home to some of London's quirkiest restaurants and boutique shops.

The market is free to enter and explore and is a perfect way to spend your bank holiday Monday afternoon. Dip in and out of the various trader's shops and come away with a whole host of treasures and hopefully a full stomach!


British Library's Treasures Gallery

Another free spot to visit is the Treasures Gallery at the British Library, which is home to some of the world's most exciting, beautiful and significant books, manuscripts and recordings.

Discover the stories that shaped the world, from the Magna Carta and Shakespeare to Ada Lovelace and The Beatles, from 11am to 5pm.


Nunhead Cemetery

One of London's lesser known great Victorian cemeteries, Nunhead is located between Brockley and Peckham in south London.

Take a Bank Holiday stroll through the grounds of the cemetery, which was consecrated in 1840, to take in the impressive planting and Victorian monuments.


Royal Observatory Greenwich

This year's free exhibition at Royal Museums Greenwich is the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year, open this Bank Holiday Monday from 10am to 5pm.

Showcasing spectacular images shot by astrophotographers around the world, you won't get a wow-factor as big as this for free anywhere else.


Picnic in the park

Prepare your basket of food and drink and get ready to leave the house as soon as the sun appears from behind the clouds.

London has a multitude of options to choose from, with scenic highlights including Primrose Hill, Kew Gardens and Crystal Palace Park.
