The perfect (free) walking tour of London

If you want to see London on a budget, follow our walking tour of the capital so you don't miss out some of the big tourist spots.

Start your journey at Waterloo tube station, which is serviced by the Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo & City journey and is just a short journey from Oxford Circus and Victoria. However, if you're travelling from other popular tube stops such as Covent Garden or Liverpool Street, it is really easy to get to too.

When you come up at Waterloo, head to Southbank, where you can see the Royal Festival Hall and the National Theatre. From here, walk along the river towards Jubilee Gardens and the London Eye, which stands tall above the Thames. It's a great opportunity here to get yourself a picture of the London Eye with the Houses of Parliament in the background. Perfect for that postcard of London for family and friends back home!

As you head towards Westminster Bridge, you'll pass the Sea Life London Aquarium and the London Dungeon. A walk across Westminster Bridge is fantastic as you can see the wonderful skyline, so unique to London.

Now you'll find yourself in front of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament with Westminster Abbey - where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got married back in April 2011 - just around the corner.

Then make your way down Horse Guards Road, which will take you past Churchill War Rooms, 10 Downing Street and Horse Guards Parade, eventually leading you to The Mall.

Right at the end of The Mall is the Victoria Monument and Buckingham Palace but the walk there is lovely too.

If you want to continue your walk, you can head up Constitution Hill to Wellington Arch, which is a victory arch proclaiming Wellington's defeat of Napoleon/
