In London, many pubs and coffee shops use the Cloud service to provide free wifi. This service require registration so you can just do it beforehand and use whenever you spot it.

It should not be difficult to spot a free wifi ranging from mobile companies to individual shops.

I have the EE WiFi App on my iphone and that seems to work OK. I haven't tried any others though to compare it against

The Cloud also offers app which makes log-in easier! There must be for Apple and Android as well.
