3 Ways To Find Cheap Places To Eat In London

London has a reputation for being expensive, and most of the time, it deserves that reputation. It’s a great city that has so much to see and do, but it is so expensive. Most people would think that a budget trip to London just wasn’t possible because everything is so costly, but that isn’t true. If you know what you’re doing, it is possible.

The thing that people struggle with the most is food because the restaurants are so pricey, and you end up eating out a lot when you are away. With the food and drink being so expensive, the cost quickly adds up and before you know it, you’re way over budget. But believe it or not, there are actually ways to eat out for cheap in London. These are some of the best ways to save money on food when you visit London

Avoid The Tourist Traps 

This is a good piece of advice in general if you want to save money in London. Anywhere that is near a tourist attraction like the Houses of Parliament or the Tower of London is going to put their prices up a lot. There’s no point looking for places to eat out near any of the tourist attractions because you will pay way over the odds wherever you go. It’s best to look at the places where the locals would eat, like Shoreditch, Soho, or Camden. They’re still going to be expensive, but nowhere near as much as you would pay if you were right in the centre of the city near all of the tourist hotspots

Find Chain Restaurants 

Chain restaurants are a bit more expensive in London than they would be elsewhere, but compared to most restaurants nearby, it will be a lot cheaper. If you are looking for a cheap meal, you should look for chain restaurants. The good thing about London is that a lot of chains from other countries will open up there before moving to other cities, so you can find a lot of reasonably priced chains like Chuck’s Roadhouse (find the menu at www.chucksroadhouse.com), a great American style rib place. You’re still getting new dining experiences, but you benefit from the low prices of the chains.

Do Some Research 

London is expensive but people exaggerate sometimes. We all assume that you can’t find anywhere in the entire city that won’t rip you off, but that just isn’t the case. There are always cheap places to be found, as long as you know where to find them. If you do a bit of research beforehand, you will be able to find some more affordable places to eat while you are out in London. A lot of the street food places give you a cheap option for lunch, and some of the food is amazing. If you visit www.standard.co.uk, you can find a great list of London meals for under £10. 

It’s true that London is expensive but that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to find a cheap bite to eat while you are there.
