    I wanted to mention to you the great time that can be had on a Tuesday evening in New Cross at the Amersham Arms. I'm not a Jazz fan but have been recording a number of gigs for the SE Collective and have to say that the standard of musicianship has been absolutely breath-taking week after week, actually quite an experience, very original acts, worth having a look at. I think they need to do a lot more work in marketing their events which they have been holding for just over two years now. Please take a look at their site http://secollective.blogspot.co.uk/ You can also hear some of the gigs I have recorded there, a list that will grow via this link http://andandand.tripod.com/livemusic.htm

    Sorry, forgot this one. Free cuppa's to be had at Twinings in the Strand. If you go to the far end of the shop on the right,
    they will happily give you a sample of a freshly made cuppa to try.

    Went to Kenwood House yesterday. It was free. Recently reopened great collection of paintings by some noted and less noted artists and no barriers all around the place. Artists that spring to mind were Rembrandt (another self portrait), Landseer, Turner, Constable, Reynolds, Gainsborough, Vermeer Etc. Etc.

    A great collection of art, furniture and armour closer to central London is the Wallace Collection. That too is free.

    For freebies; some places will accept carers for free. I don't know who they considered the carer and who was the cared for,
    but Wisley just did me two for one as the considered me or my ma in law a carer!

    A few London bus garages are opening their doors on various Saturdays in the next month or so. Vintage vehicles etc , family activities and buses for kids (and big people) to have a clamber about.

    image.jpg In addition to the Urban Art Fair in Brixton, come to Stanley Halls in SE25 for a free art exhibition in the 'real 'hood'!

    196 will drop you straight outside the Halls. Overground to Norwood Junction and it's a 3min walk! Come and check it out...

    How cheap do you want things?
    Ive just had a quick spin on the outdoor gym on Clapham Common and note the equipment has USB sockets for charging devices.

    lots of lovely parks. Many of the museums have free entry, though certain exhibitions aren't.

    Walkie talkie, 20 fenchurch st is free. Good views, expensive once you are up there for drinks etc. And needs booking in advance.

    But is it free public access without a booking to the top / somewhere high up in the building?

    The ky Garden, 20 Fenchurch St is free, though booking is required two or three days ahead or visit; ID is requested on entry. Once up on top, there is no obligation to spend a penny and you are free to wander around all 360 degrees.
