Even if it’s this expensive, you can still do a bunch of things and visit a lot of places and I can assure you you’ll have so much fun.

Per example, “The British Museum”, the world famous museum exhibits the works of men from prehistoric to modern times, from all around the world. The entry is free, but special exhibitions require tickets.
Another good place to visit is the “Science Museum”. A great experience to witness and feel for you.
