The United Kingdom is famous for being one of the more expensive places in the world to travel. London in particular can be expensive, but the region in general will take a fair chunk out of your wallet if you’re not careful. Basically, you can expect to pay about one and a half times the prices you’re used to if you’re coming from North America. However, travelling the region doesn’t have to mean the demise of your wallet. There is no reason that you can’t travel the UK on 45-55USD a day, but you’ll certainly have to work to do so.

Stick to National Museums
In the UK most of the national museums are free. The private museums can charge you between 5 and 8 pounds. Unless there is a private museum you “have” to see, you’ll get just as much out of the national museums and you’ll have more cash to spend on other things.
