Durham Cathedral 2

1- Many British museums and galleries offer free entry. Try former brewery The Tetley for modern art in Leeds, northern England or, for something tangier, Colman’s Mustard Museum in Norwich, eastern England. There’s also the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Modern in London, Tate Liverpool in… Liverpool (unsurprisingly) and hundreds more;

2- Similarly, few of Britain’s famous churches levy visitors. Consider the Romanesque splendour of Durham Cathedral in northeastern England, or, in December, King’s College Chapel’s famous Christmas Eve carol service in Cambridge, and an hour above London via train. Start queuing before 9am to guarantee entry;

3- While paid-for boat trips out into southwestern Wales‘ Cardigan Bay give visitors the best chance of watching dolphins, climbing to the overlooking village of Mwnt makes an ace budget alternative;

4- Tickets to many BBC shows in London, Sheffield, Birmingham, Belfast and other cities aren’t priced; check bbc website
