Save on sightseeing in London - one of the world's top ten 'best-value' destinations
Published: Tuesday 3rd of November 2009
Due to the fall in the value of the pound, many tourists can now enjoy cheap London sightseeing, as outlined in a travel guide of the world's top ten best-value destinations.
Travel guide company Lonely Planet introduced its review of London by saying: "Every economic crisis has a silver lining."
It went on to say that London has become much more affordable for visitors from abroad, if not for its residents and that the favourable exchange rate means that travellers will often find hotels and meals up to half the price they were a few years ago.
Tom Hall, Lonely Planet's travel editor, said: "The tables have turned and London's reputation as one of the world's most expensive cities is over."
The Lonely Planet website recommends 219 different sights to see in London including Banqueting House, the only surviving part of the Tudor Whitehall Palace, which once stretched most of the way down Whitehall, but was burned down in 1698.
