    Unlike the Shard, it is free. Also, you can still walk round all 360 degrees and views are good. The Shard turns everything into tiny minatures, people looking like ants etc. Worth the booking hassle.

    Meetup - Meeting new people as a group. This is interest based and can be quite good. Although some meetups can be dissapointing
    ToucanDo App - Making new friends near you. This is mainly for girls looking to widen their social circle of female friends in their area to do stuff with.

    There is Barclays Front Row in the Donmar Warehouse theatre. The tickets are released every Monday morning online and it's a 'first come - first served' system but you can get a ticket for a great performance for £10. My fiance and I saw Coriolanus this way and we absolutely loved it. We have a friend who is trying to get tickets for every play in that theatre and she usually manage to see most of them (or it seems from her Facebook comments haha) Worth trying.

    I saw the NT production of Coriolanus when it was broadcast to cinemas, it was excellent.

    Oh yes, if you don't get a ticket you can watch amazing productions in a cinema. Non just London of course :)

    Always free and always worth a trip, London has some superb cemetarys The Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery
    Kensal Green Cemetery - Links

    I think I shall go and pay my respects to the Brunel's amongst others this weekend at one of the "magnificent seven", Kensel Green. They are generally a haven of peace and great for wildlife.

    I was going to post that place under the great Chistmas rip ofs. You have to pay to get in, suffer crushes similar to the tube in the rush hour and then have to pay a small fortune for a naff burger and incipid glass of something they try and pass off as mulled wine.

    I believe that organ recitals in the likes of Westminster Abbey and St Pauls are free.
    I am not sure if this simply means that once you have paid your humoungous admission charge the recital is free
    or the admission charge is waived. I am also not sure if this will leave you free to wander around the place or not.
    Anyone know more about this; I hope to test this soon!

    I have visited Tate's Magic Realism: Art in Weimar Germany 1919-33 and can only recommend it. Stuff by George Grosz is really weird.

    Much of the British Museum is free, even some of the special exhibitions up on the top floor, room 90/91. This was a delight Rembrandt
