As a tourist I found London WAY cheaper than Prague... The food was cheaper.. the galleries were cheaper... Of course I couldn't find any supermarkets in the old city, which didn't help.. In the end I paid 200kc for a meal and a bottle of water, nice place.. if only I could remember the name! but I saw one sign with the nerve to boast 'dinner for one person just 450kc'... That's ridiculous! I didn't have to stay overnight in Prague so I don't know about the accommodation.. And London is so english, you can be right in the center of London where all the shops are and all the history and all the tourist attractions, but it's still english. Prague doesn't feel Czech. Also people are soooo friendly in London, they were friendly in Prague too.. but they are sooooo friendly in London! And everything goes there! Every exhibition longs to stop in London! Every band! Everything! At least once in my life I'd like to live there, I know it wouldn't seem cheap then! But it's quite a cheap place to visit. I think the whole trip including accommodation and food and flights and gallery tickets cost me 250 euro for five days I adore London, I think it's my favorite capital city.. but then there's Madrid... oh how could I choose!? Still I need to visit Prague at least one more time, to see the art properly, London and Madrid have the best Galleries I've ever seen, and this colors my view... (literally) Reading this thread everyone seems to have had completely different experiences of London hee hee.. Tourist attractions are expensive? Not the ones that attracted me! I do remember thinking that 15 euro for a ferris wheel seemed a bit much.. but going to the top floor of the Tate is free and you get the same view.. And the coffee was slightly above the average price (but still cheaper than any restaurant in Dublin that I know of), but I saw it as a donation to the gallery so I didn't mind. and I'm not into eating out if I can avoid it... I'd prefer to go to a supermarket... Packet sandwiches were only the equivalent of 2 euro! I couldn't believe it! They're 5 euro at home!I guess London is was just made for tourists like me.
