The London Pass - To Buy or Not to Buy?

Updated: Aug 14, 2019


The London Pass is a travel card that offers access to over 80 attractions in London. They can be purchased for 1, 2, 3, 6, or 10 consecutive days of sightseeing. Here are some things to think about before purchasing a London Pass:

What attractions are you wishing to visit during your stay? Prices of the tickets for attractions are available online or on the The London Pass website. I wrote a list of attractions we wanted to see and listed the prices and then compared that list with purchasing a card.

Hop -On Hop Off Tour £34.00

Churchill War Rooms 22.00

Westminster Abbey 22.00

Tower of London 26.80

Tower Bridge 9.80

River Cruise 18.75

St Paul’s Cathedral 20.00

Globe Theater 16.00

View from The Shard 32.00

Kensington Palace 19.50

Movie 16.50

Total £237.35

A 6-day pass for one cost £169.00, a savings of £68.35. So, to purchase passes for the two of us saved £136.70

Oyster Travel Card. We added a travel card to our London Pass order. The 6-day pass comes with £40. loaded onto the card. For most traveling, the cap is £6.40 per day, but if you run low, the card can be refilled at any station. Whether you buy a London Pass or not having an Oyster Card is essential and can be purchased without a London Pass ahead of time or on your arrival. Click here for details.

If you plan, however, to spend most of your vacation visiting art museums, galleries and other public sites or shopping, buying The London Pass is not for you. These attractions are free with an optional donation at each entry.
