London: Y-Plan London
Cost: Free – just download the app.
When you first arrive in a new city, it’s handy to have a local to guide you; a guide who knows where to get cheap 2-for-1 cocktails, discounted cinema tickets and last-minute gigs. For those of you short on a local friend (or any friends), Y-Plan will become your new personal BFF. Signing-up is free, easy and the site will tailor your profile to your specific interests, ensuring it doesn’t suggest a candle making class unless you’re totally down with scented wax and fake seashells. Some events are free, some cost money, but you will often find super cheap activities and deals that will show you a side of the city you haven’t yet experienced. Download the app, sign-up and be prepared to impress the friends you totally have with a London West Bank Graffiti Workshop.
