London Pass with Travel? a good buy?

by ruthanna09

Hi, I'll be in London and other parts of UK for about a month. (two
weeks at least in London.) Is the London Pass a good buy?..what are the
"catches"...(here in U.S., there'always a "catch" ...that you may not
be aware of when you think you've got a bargain). I would buy the 6
day LondonPass for an adult...and I know its requirements: 6 consecutive
days of use...and free entry to a number of attractions. What additional
advantage would the "London Pass with Travel" offer? (It's hard to know
in advance what 6 consecutive days I'd want sign up for--perhaps the
2nd or 3rd day after arrival in London..) You need to buy ONLine. Would I be
better off buying the "Oyster Card"?

Would appreciate suggestions...I'll be staying in Bloomsbury..
assume transport to Central London by "Tube" would be included in
"London Pass.with Travel"....

I can call their number directly, but would like your input first.

Thanks, Ruthanna

The London Pass, as with all city passes, is only a bargain if you use it enough to get your money's worth. What I did when I purchased one was sit down with the list of what was included and a list of what I wanted to see to determine whether it would save me money (I found one for 1/2 price a few years back, it did save me money but I went to ALOT of places). Quite honestly, I don't remember it saving me any time with queues so that wasn't a factor like it was with the Paris Museum Pass.

Remember too that a lot of London attractions are free, such as the museums, if you are rushing to all of the places on the London pass to get your money's worth, you may be skipping some of the best things in London. Plus if you buy a paper travelcard in London, you qualify for the 2 for 1 offers on the Daysout guide which includes the Tower, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court and a lot more

http://www.daysoutguide.co.uk/attraction-types/2for1london.aspx

As far as the with travel or without travel question, the difference in cost is £42 and it gets you a zone 1-6 7 day travelcard which would be £47.60 if purchased separately. The reality is that most people who travel to London rarely go outside zone 1-2, the 7 day pass for that is £25.80 and you'd be overpaying with the travel option on the pass.

Someone on Trip Advisor actually took the time to compare the admission of full admission vs. the London Pass vs. the Days Out Guide, you might find it useful in figuring out if the pass works for you

Re: London Pass with Travel? a good buy?

As noted above, it all depends on how much you might want to use the travel element and, more especially, the entrances. Major museums are free to enter anyway.

Same with all European city cards.

If you are dubious about entrances you might consider whether just a travelcard or Oyster is a better option for you.

http://www.londontoolkit.com/briefing/travelcard_oyster.htm

is a very useful page giving the pros and cons for each.

If you are staying in Bloomsbury you will be in Central London. Check if you will really be entitled to free entry to the attractions you mentioned, because I bought a pass when I visited London and it only offered limited fare reductions in some places.

Re: London Pass with Travel? a good buy?

Sorry - this is a blatant plug, but I bought a six day adult London pass earlier in the year and now don't have enough holiday left to use it. I've just put it on Ebay at £40 (the usual price is £77). If anyone's interested it's here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140340284450

I've used these passes before, and if you're intending to see major attractions like London Zoo and the Tower of London they do work out at very good value.

Hope this is of interest to someone on the forum !

Travel Tips for London

We didn't get to see the...

by yankeeswede

We didn't get to see the changing of the guard (bummer), but Buckingham Palace was just amazing. Pictures in books and magazines does it no justice. The same holds true for Big Ben...what an incredible clock!!! Also, I couldn't get over how green it was in February! Grass and daffodils everywhere!!! The people are very friendly and hospitable. That's a total plus when you are travelling in a foreign land! I didn't find that when I was in Paris, people there were very rude and Anti-American.

Then comes the Blackfriars...

by Pegasus74

Then comes the Blackfriars Bridge across which the familiar domed St Paul's Cathedral erects. Linked to the cathedral by the new cross-river Millennium Footbridge is the Tate Gallery of Modern Art, which houses interesting collections of contemporary art. At the top of the building is a two storey glass roof which provides natural light into the top floors of the gallery. Here you can enjoy a cup of Capuccino at the gallery cafe and see St Paul's sitting elegantly amidst towering modern office blocks.

Standing in line

by filipdebont

As Westminster Abbey is a very popular tourist highlight, you have to prepare yourself to stand in line for some time. If you are unlucky because you have arrived after the arrival of a few busses full of travellers, well waiting time can easily be more than an hour.
But of course this can’t be a reason not to visit this magnificent Church; it is really a “must-see”.

Maybe its because i'm a Londoner!

by carlrea

Some people might think that Londoners or 'Cocknies' can appear rude sometimes and i am sure that some of them are but what people dont realise is that they dont mean to be like this it is just that everything in London moves at 100 miles per hour and they wait for nobody. Londoners are on edge and are always looking to get ahead or create an advantage. They dont mean to be abrupt but they do not suffer fools gladly.
Still thet are fiercely proud of their heritage and roots and certainly proud to be 'a Londoner' or 'Cockneys' as they are more affectionately known.

The Tate Gallery of British...

by chrissyalex

The Tate Gallery of British Art This gallery holds the world's largest collection of British works from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Some famous works here are 'Manes and Foals' by George Stubbs,'Flatford Mill' by John Constable and one of my favorites, 'Lady of Shalott' by John Waterhouse
