Is the London Pass worth it?

We believe that the London Pass is a good choice for many visitors. There are many attractions to choose from, which are very expensive.

The London Pass is flexible, offers a validity of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 10 days and can be loaded directly onto the mobile phone.

Nevertheless, there are also a few disadvantages. For example, you have to take care of some reservations yourself and you don't have priority entry in high season, so you have to put up with waiting times. This results in our following rating:

It quickly becomes clear that although the London Pass is quite expensive for one day, there is only a small charge for each additional day. This improves the price-performance ratio for longer use over several days. The London Pass for ten days in particular is well worth the money. The price per day is very favourable.

Assuming you're staying in London for four days, the London Pass costs £149, and we think you can visit between eight and twelve attractions in that time.

For whom is the pass worthwhile?

In our view, the London Pass is worthwhile if:

  • ... you spend several days in London.
  • ... you would like to visit at least two attractions every day.
  • ... you would like to use particularly expensive services (e.g. hop-on/hop-off bus, Westminster Abbey, walking tour, The Shard, Tower of London).
  • ... you want to watch your wallet and save some money while travelling to London.
  • ... you don't want to buy individual tickets. The London Pass is very convenient.
