Visit the adjoining homes lived in by Jimi Hendrix and composer George Frideric Handel in Mayfair. How’s that for a musical combo?

Stroll with London Walks: $18

Go for a stroll with London Walks. For about $18, visit Jack the Ripper’s slashing grounds, Harry Potter’s magical filming spots or the haunts of legendary rock stars. For a walk on the less seedy side of art and history, check out the city’s famous museums and public galleries—most don’t charge admission rates. The Tate Modern, National Gallery and British Museum are magnificent and offer free tours.

Visit Belmont Farms: $35
