Free attractions in Kent and London top the UK’s list of favourites

GoMunkee is a huge advocate of free things for families to see and do around the UK. In the latest Top 10 Free UK attractions poll, seven of the nation’s favourites were either in Kent, or easy striking distance of the county.   GoMunkee loves things  that are FREE!  

Topping the list is The Natural History Museum in London. This pipped the lead over The Science Museum – also in London – with Brighton Beach coming in third. The list is compiled from a survey of 2,000 UK adults by Premier Inn. GoMunkee’s added some of its favourites from recent years.
