Are You Ready to Travel Smart?

If you'd like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way-the way the locals do.

Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, why not stay in Virginia Woolf's childhood home for just $150 a night, or bed down in a private home in central London for $45 a night?

Or how about paying only $6.50 for a classic fish and chips meal at the Fryer's Delight, so you'll have money left over for an elegant high tea at the British Museum for just $17, half of what you'd pay elsewhere?

Let me show you the "other" London-the one only insiders know about. Volunteer to help to build a burrow for hedgehogs with the London Wildlife Trust, or spend an afternoon watching the political brawls at Parliament. These are only a few of the great ways to get closer to the culture of London. Read on for more!

Happy Travels,

Pauline Frommer
