Default Bargain London

For years, London has been touted as one of the world's most expensive cities. But a recent survey shows that its rip-off reputation is slipping. In a Mercer survey measuring the comparative cost of over 200 items in 143 cities, London dropped 13 places to number 16 in the world, falling below Paris, Hong Kong and Geneva (if you want to play around with the poll's findings, find all of the data at the Guardian Datastore). Amazingly, the survey even claims that visiting London is better value than a trip to Caracas, the capital of Venezuela.

But as an avid budgeteer, I've never thought of London as being expensive. In fact, some of the best things to do in London are some of the cheapest.
