Best Paid Attractions in London

Sometimes the free things just don't hit the spot and you deserve a treat. You deserve some flavour and spice to add to your life for that little adventure. Some things just aren't worth spending your money on in London you get those tourist prices so find the best things here on this list. Don't get me wrong I love finding the best free things but i do love spending a little money from time to time, especially a good festival or concert, a little groovy boogie can't hurt anyone.

Mayfields Lavander 


Not much to say here other than its a field with loads of lavender in. it looks pretty and purple and of course smells lush.

Its about £4 per person so not too expensive and a nice thing to do on a spring or summers day. Under 16's go free!

Climbing the O2

You get amazing views of London especially at sunset and its like a leg day at the gym, what more could you want? Honestly I think it's a really cool thing to do with anyone and it doesn't completely break the bank as it's around £35 - £40 per person.

Emirates Cable Car

Just a cable car across the thames most busy at sunset but its cheap and you get beautiful views of London.  

Around £4 - £10 per person you can use your oyster or contactless card.

Whistle Punks

This is right up my street. I mean everyone needs to let there anger out sometimes doing it with an axe in your hand is the best way. Apparently drinking is allowed but I'm not sure how safe that would be especially if someone in your group pisses you off lol.


Each lane can have up to 6 people you can hire out the whole lane or you can be with a group of other random people. You get a full health and safety debrief on arrival and a lesson on how to throw the axe properly. £30 per person or £174 per lane.

Rio Cinema

This is an Art Deco inspired cinema, throwing it back to the 1930's. I love this style and think its pretty cool and it adds that twist to your normal cinema night.

Moth Club

This is in Hackney it's a cute little club that offers a wide range of concerts and live events. Its usually small bands or artists but if you stay peeled you'll find some up and coming. In the video i went to go see Rada she's this chill artist who at the time wasn't as well known as she is now it was amazing but it was covid so we was sat down.

Museum of Brands

What can I say it's a museum of brands. You look at the past designs that the brand have used. I think its kinda cool and very aesthetic. It has things like old sweet deigns, cleaning products, food, drinks, from all the well known brands.

Top Secret

Comedy Club

The top secret comedy club isn't very secret at all its actually had some pretty well known people go. The most secret thing they do is surprise celebrity guest tickets and their events do sell out quick so you will have to book.

I have heard great things about this place but of course, it does depend on your sense of humour and the type of person you are also what comedian you go to see.

Warner Bros Studio

(The Making of Harry Potter)

I am a big Harry Potter fan I cant lie, I watched it multiple times through my childhood and always wished I could be Herminone. I've only been here once and it was when it first opened so many years ago when I was a lot younger. It's got a little bigger and things have been added to it if your a fan this is a must see!

Yes, okay this is definitely a weird one but trust me on this. The architecture in this place is insane besides the history. Well no, I take it back the history makes it kinda interesting considering the beauty of the building.

~ Skuna Boats ~

 Boats that you can hire out and float down the thames with a group of your mates. Theres two types of boats one is a BBQ boat and the other is a Jacuzzi boat they can both fit up to 7 people on. Personally I couldn't sit in a hot tub for too long but I still think both are pretty cool. This can be a little more on the pricey side but if your splitting it between all 7 of you then its not too bad (think they do couple deals too).

Average cost - £220 - £250
