  1. Below is a past thread "London on a budget." I would suggest going to the upper right-hand corner of this page and search for budget and/or bargain.

    1. re: DavidT

      Recent "Frugal Traveler" article in the NY Times on visiting London:


    2. Try the various places in Brixton Village. See the mega thread here:

      Close to the Kensington area, this might be useful:
      Less pricey places mentioned in that thread include: No. 10, Mohsen, Daquise, Bosphorous Kebab House

      1. You're very close to Taiwan Village and that whole high street (North Rd?) has a lot of cheap eats as well as a market. There's a fried to order falafel stand which I think is 3 pounds for an enormous "large."

        Otherwise check the other budget threads. Depending on how far you want to travel on the District Line, check various Indian threads regarding Whitechapel and East Ham.
