Free things to do in the UK this summer

Free things to do in the UK this summerHostel-staying travelers who plan to spend the summer in the UK can enjoy a host of budget-friendly free events at various locations across the country.

Backpackers on a budget will be particularly interested in the range of cultural activities on offer that do not require a single penny to be spent, reports the Guardian.

Fans of rather more refined cultural pursuits can make their way to London's St Paul's Cathedral for a free performance by the Bonachela Dance Company on 10th July 2009 until 11th July 2009.

Literature enthusiasts can also head further north to catch the Humber Mouth Literature Festival, which is taking place from 20th June 2009 until 7th July 2009 and features a host of free diversions including talks by authors Kate Long and Dan Waddell.

Other highlights include the Cardiff Festival from 2nd July 2009 until 31st August 2009, the Leicester Caribbean Festival on 1st August 2009 and the flower show at Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Garden.
