How do you activate The London Pass?
The London Pass is available for 1, 2, 3, 6 or 10 days – so choose the duration of Pass that best matches your trip. Your London Pass is valid for use on consecutive days for the duration you have selected and is activated upon entry at your first attraction, through a bar code recognition system.
So if you have bought your pass and selected an estimated start date, the pass won’t actually be activated until you scan it through at an attraction. This benefit allows you to purchase up to 12 months in advance – giving you plenty of time to plan your trip before you arrive! Note: if you have a London Pass with Travel the travelcard will be activated from the date selected at purchase.*
TOP TIP It is important to note that a ‘day’ is based on a calendar day, so should you first use your pass at 4pm on Monday, Monday is counted as day one of your pass usage.
When does The London Pass expire?
Your pass will automatically expire at the end of your validity period, after your pass duration (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 6 or 10 days) has lapsed. Once your pass duration has expired the card will stop working and will not allow you access to attractions.
The London Pass is also subject to a “purse value” of maximum gate prices related to the number of days. For example, with a one day adult pass you can visit up to £90 worth of attractions. Once you have reached your “purse value” for the total duration of your pass, the pass will also expire. Note: Passes can only be used at each attraction once. Here is a complete breakdown of purse values.
Full Adult Public Entry Value "Purse Value"
Full Child Public Entry Value "Purse Value"
1 Day Pass
2 Day Pass
3 Day Pass
6 Day Pass
10 Day Pass
For example; with a 6 day adult London Pass (online price: £108) you get a whopping £540 worth of attraction entry!
Fast Track Entry
Want that VIP feel? Another great benefit of the London Pass is that it allows you to skip frustrating queues at a number of attractions. Simply look for the London Pass signs and show the attendant your London Pass. Learn more about the attractions included on the queue jumping privilege.
