If you’re staying in London and you’re short on time you should definitely consider taking the London Pass. If you plan your trip properly and you have that explorer’s zeal in you, you can extract much more value from it than what you pay for in the pass! Even though it doesn’t include some popular attractions like London Eye, Madam Tussaud’s and Sea Life, this pass will definitely help you in simplifying how you should plan your trip in and around London. PS - The availability of the Uber Boat and Hop on Hop off Bus through the pass is a very underrated feature and if used properly can impart great saving value to your trip!

Definitely worth it ! I was in London for 5 days. I tried to arrange my schedule around what was included in the pass and it was worth the money. The app is very clear and lets you know how to get the tickets for each attraction.

Very good tour especially to get your bearings on the city. Hits all the main historical attractions, our guide Thora was passionate and insightful, Great way to start trip in London

Simple and practical, we only had to get the passport for the things we looked at and were able to get in or received an entrance ticket.

With the London Pass everything is very quick and easy and allows you to see many things
