We all know that the best things in life are free. Especially right now, when life seems like a a little Dear. But the good news is… London is officially the best place in the world to gobble up free culture.
According to a new study by radical storageLondon has the most and best free tourist attractions of any city in the world.
The Luggage Storage Network analyzed more than 22.9 million TripAdvisor reviews from nearly 150,000 tourist attractions around the world to come up with their ranking of the best cities with free attractions. They looked at both the quality and the quantity of the gifts. JThe analysis focused on attractions such as parks, galleries and walking and cycling tours.
Unsurprisingly, London came out on top for quantity and quality with 1,389 free tourist attractions rated with an average of 4.41 out of five. Our city was also ranked second best in the world for museums and galleries, beaten only by New Orleans. The top rated free museums in London were the National Gallery, the British Museums and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Second on the overall list was the Big Apple with 628 free things to do with an average rating of 4.48 stars. Rome had the second highest number of attractions that will cost you nothing, and Paris was second. But compared to London’s 1,389 activities, it was hardly a competition, as those cities had 945 and 680 giveaways, respectively.
And if you’re going to Japan, the tourist attractions can be epic (we’re looking at you, DisneySea), but they’re going to cost you a pretty penny because Tokyo got the highest score for paid activities.
