Nothing comes close to the astronomical value afforded by a London Pass. It grants you access to over 70 special offers at attractions around the city, and many of these are entirely free! This is a great way to save money in London, which is otherwise known as an expensive location for shopping or sightseeing. We’re glad it doesn’t have to be that way – and our guide below will show you why.
Those who want to catch a West End show are able to save on exclusive theatre tickets with a London Pass, and can follow their experience with a discounted dinner aboard a Bateaux London Cruise, with a complementary river sunset to boot. If a medieval themed meal is more your dream, try the Medieval Banquet for a fraction of the price!
If seeing famous London landmarks in succession is something that appeals to you, the Original London Bus Tour is a fantastic way to see the city’s sights – it’s a hop on/hop off bus tour that takes you right through the heart of the world’s greatest city and shows you much of what it has to offer. There are plenty of other city tours on offer too: there’s the London Bicycle tour for example. Which should suit anyone who prefers to travel on two wheels.
It’s no secret that London is steeped in history; there are the Chislehurst caves, where abound beautiful corridors and artefacts abound, or you can discover the history of London’s Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, the London Canal Museum, Churchill’s War Rooms and much more. The Imperial War museum is a highlight, and is highly encouraged for tourist and locals alike.
Sports fans can enjoy a large host of football stadium and tennis court tours, all at reduced rates, thanks to the pass. There’s plenty of them scattered around the city, so you’re bound to find one for your team of choice.
Art enthusiasts may prefer the Queen’s Gallery, or the Banqueting House — the ceiling of the latter is covered in famous works by fine artists long gone. Enjoy a fully immersive visual experience for less than you would normally have to pay.
For films there are plenty of free screenings and events at Curzon cinemas across the city. There’s the Curzon Mayfair, the Curzon Bloomsbury, and the Curzon Mayfair; the free films play any time between Monday and Thursday and before 17:00 on other days.
Finish any of these activities off with a cheap drink at one of many a London city bar. What we recommend is the ‘Drink London!’ tour as part of the Food & Drink lovers tour package – you can save 20% on final costs using your London pass. Wafflemeister is a viable option for food, selling some of the greatest freshly baked waffles around. They’re all made according to an old family recipe, which remains a secret to this day. The scrumptious waffles are freshly baked every day and are served with a mouth-watering range of toppings and fillings, including strawberries and Belgian chocolate fudge. (Don’t miss the homemade thick American shakes and Italian ice cream either!) They’re all available for 15% off the usual price.
The London Pass also caters to those who want to unwind after a tiring day in the city. Carnaby Street in London features a Walk-In Back Rub which, when paired with a London Pass, is available to you for 20 minutes at a staggering discount of 30%.
If that’s not enough in the form of discounts, London Passes allow you free entry into several of the city’s greatest attractions and museums, including but not limited to; the National Gallery, National portrait Gallery, National Maritime museum, Royal Air Force museum Southwark Cathedral.
These offers even extend to Windsor, so you can take advantage of these offers and discounts in the cafes and restaurants whilst you’re on your way to Windsor castle!
You can begin using your London Pass whenever you like. It activates upon entry at the first included attraction you choose to visit. It’s advised to use your pass in the morning to get as much from it as possible, as it operates on a consecutive day basis rather than a 24-hour period.
You can even pair the pass with an inclusive travel option, for unmitigated travel across the city all day! When you’re done, make sure you check in to one of the luxury suites in London, for an especially memorable stay.
