Mayor of London Ken Livingstone this week launched Totally London, a £3.8 million campaign to boost business and tourism in the capital. Here's a quick guide to the offers and discounts available in SE1:
A new survey by YouGov for Totally London says that 69% of Londoners would like the opportunity to visit the capital's top attractions more than they currently do. 72% felt that the best thing about living in London was the range of entertainment and cultural attractions, 64% liked the excitement and general 'buzz' of London.
Running from 17 May to 15 June, Totally London month has been funded by the London Development Agency at the request of the Mayor as part of a major recovery package to offset the effects of the recent downturn in tourism.
Ken Livingstone, said: "From our poll results we know that Londoners want to go out more so we are hoping that they will enjoy Totally London month to the full and take advantage of all the amazing offers around. There has never been a better time to experience London's attractions and enjoy the diversity our fantastic capital has to offer. We hope that their enthusiasm for the capital will also inspire the rest of the country to begin to come down and visit London!"
There will also be unlimited bus travel on each of the five weekends for just £1 a passenger per day, plus free travel for accompanied children on the Underground and buses at weekends from 31 May.
