Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,399 reviews

With the London Pass I was able to visit three attractions whose separate price was much higher. So it's worth visiting London with the London pass

This ticket was excellent value for money. App was really easy to use and venue staff knew what the ticket was.

The London pass allowed me to visit most of London in 5 days. I liked the practicality and the price.

Very good pass to avoid the queues and enjoy a lot of attractions

everything I wanted to do, at a ridiculously cheap price
