How does the London Pass work?
The London Pass offers entry to over 80 attractions for a fixed fee, saving you up to 60% on individual admission charges. There are 5 different types of pass, valid for 1, 2, 3, 6 or 10 days. Regardless of the type you choose, the attractions included are the same. The only difference is the period of validity. Simply present the London Pass at the entrance to one of the attractions and get started! No matter how many days the pass is valid for, you can use it anywhere in the city to gain admission to the sights, museums, and tours.
Our tip: The validity period is calculated in calendar days! If you’ve booked the London Pass for 1 day, for example, and you don’t start using it until 5:00 p.m., it will only be valid until midnight. We, therefore, recommend that you start your sightseeing tour of London in the morning. That way you’ll have sufficient time to see a maximum number of attractions.

Why do you need a London Pass?
The London Pass is a tourist pass that can save you up to 60% on tickets for London’s major tourist attractions. You pay a one-off fee for the pass, which then gives you admission to the attractions at no extra cost. The pass also makes it easier to organize your trip and visit the sights, as it spares the need to buy individual tickets. And most important of all: why pay more for the same thing? If you purchase your London Pass online in advance, you’ll pay less and won’t need to worry about buying tickets for individual attractions either. All you need to do is check the list of attractions included in the pass. As long as it covers at least three of the places you want to visit, you’ll save money. We strongly recommend buying one!
