London Travel: 9 Money-Saving Tips For Visitors (VIDEO)

London is known as a notoriously expensive town, and the dollar to pound exchange rate isn't helping matters. The good news is, though, there are ways to experience the city and still stay on budget.

For instance, try shouldering the blow of lodging expenses by booking a stay at a UK-based hotel, rather than an American chain. Once settled in, be sure to hit up the museums, most of which are free. And, when it comes time to eat, head right to the pubs or check out the city's abundant grab-and-go options.

For all of the money-saving tips, check out the video above.
