Just how expensive is a day out in London? We recently heard that London is the world’s priciest city for culture with the average cost for 2 people to an art gallery, museum, heritage site, the opera, the ballet and a classical concert costing £256.
Despite the premium prices, London’s tourist figures have been sky-rocketing with millions filling the cities attractions every year. Clearly the costs aren’t putting people off!
So are London’s attractions really overpriced? Do we get a great experience for what we pay for or is it all one big rip off? I’ve taken a sample of London tourist attractions, researched the ticket price of 1 adult and 1 child and created a price comparison table. As you take a look, think about if you would be willing to pay that amount for that attraction.
London attraction price comparison.
The average price of an adult ticket for the above attractions: £21.03
The average price of a child ticket for the above attractions: £15.80
So what do you think? Which of these attractions is worth the admission price? Maybe you have visited one of these attractions before – if so did you think it was value for money? Let’s see if London is really as overpriced as we are led to believe.
Whilst this table only illustrates paid attractions, there are still plenty of free things to do in London which can help you balance the books when you plan your days out.
