London Attraction Passes

London City Passes | Which Tourist Pass is Best?

Posted by & filed under London.

This post compares the London Pass, the Explorer Pass and other tourist discount passes in London. Learn how a tourist discount pass could save you money on attractions, tours and more.  Don’t forget, our tours are pay-what-you-wish and cover much of the city.

 

 

BEFORE YOU BUY

There are several different passes to choose from, and we have broken them down by type.  Just click on the links for more details, but here is an overview.

The London Pass is an all-inclusive pass that allows you to enjoy as many attractions, tours, and experiences as you can within a set number of days for one set price (think of an all-you-can-eat buffet). All-inclusive passes are the most expensive type, but you could potentially save the most amount of money if do some pre-planning.

There are passes that allow you to choose a set # of attractions and tours. These passes are usually offered in increments of 3, 4, 5, 7 or more attractions and you choose which attractions you want from a long list of top attractions. These are a bit cheaper and more flexible than all-inclusive passes but your savings potential is lower.

Another option is prepackaged passes which are like a prix-fixe/set-menu. If you like the attractions included on the ‘menu’, then these passes are a nice, uncomplicated way to save money. There are bus tour companies that offer their own combo deals. Lastly, London has many discount cards and passes for one or two specific activities.

If at first glance the tourist passes seem too pricey, be sure to calculate the estimated cost of visiting all the attractions you hope to see. When properly planned, these tourist passes can actually save you a lot of time and money.  It can be difficult to decide which, if any, are right for you.  Therefore, we recommend deciding on what you want and have time to do first before choosing which pass you would like.  In other words, don’t necessarily let the pass(es) decide for you where to go, but certainly get ideas from what is offered.  

Remember Our Tours

Don’t forget about all of our “name your own price” walking tours of the city! You can save as much as you like with our tours. For a full list of our tours offered, check out our calendar.
