What's it for? Free entry to London tourist attractions
London Pass gives you totally free entry to over 60 top London tourist attractions and tours and some outside London as well. It gives you not just free entry to landmarks like galleries and historical buildings, palaces and museums, castles and cathedrals, but also discounts on entertainments such as theatres, cinemas and activities. And then more. That does not mean, of course, that you never pay anything (the London Pass first needs to be bought), but you pay less and you do not have to stand in queues to buy entry tickets to the attractions.
When an attraction is already free to the public, the London Pass gives you something more like a free guided tour.
So you both save money and save time. The London Pass is a very useful and practical purchase for a London visitor.
London Pass is a smart, electronic card, about the size of a credit card. All you have to do is show the card to the attraction attendant who will swipe it through the London Pass machine and will give you free entry. Once you've chosen any attraction to see, look for the London Pass signs at the entrance so you'll avoid the line or queue.
London is extremely rich in tourist attractions, shows, events and entertainments of all kinds. When you are in London it is very easy to spend a little fortune trying to see, visit and get involved in everything. After all, that's what you're there for. You are in one of the capitals of the world only for a short time and you want to make the most of it.
