London for a Fiver.

Traveller loves London.

There is so much to do and see as the city hosts many of the world's most iconic buildings and Traveller believes it has the most beautiful parks of anywhere she has been in the world.

Today, Traveller went on a tour of the hidden gardens of the city and it was amazing!

We toured around the small gardens that can be found in the city's financial district and T couldn't help but gaze at the gardens, but also the architecture of the buildings surrounding the city.

One of T's favourite gardens had an Azara tree in it which made the whole garden and its surrounds smell like vanilla.

Heavenly.

Photobucket One of the best parts was that the tour was only £5 and the money goes straight to charity.

There is so much you can do in London for a fiver or under that from now on - perhaps once a fortnight - Traveller is going to run a little feature called London for a Fiver.

Great pictures of a great city, thank you for sharing. I know some of those places but not all.

Have a look at my post from a couple of days ago for 2 more pics of a similar nature.

Hello! Just stumbled across your blog today and love it. I look forward to the other 'London for a Fiver' posts! I was in London and Europe mid last year but there were so many things that I didn't get a chance to do or see. Your blog makes me feel as though I'm back there :)

Wow, how gorgeous! And it's nice to know that the money goes to charity, that's always a plus.

Have I told you lately that I'm so jealous of you? We spent one horrible jetlagged day in London on our way through Europe. And I have to go back and see it for real.

Superb, so when next I'm in London, sorry when next we are in London, we can do this. Seems fantastic to see a side of London.......less travelled

London has always struck me as prohibitively expensive. I like the idea of you running this series. Beautiful pictures by the way - my absolute favourite is that of the lemon tree.
