    Here’s the good news: you don’t have to do a thing! We’re taking care of that for you. Your pass will work for 2 years from the date of purchase. So relax and don’t worry - you have plenty of time to visit your favourite city once we are up and running again.

  • Should I purchase a pass now for an upcoming trip?

    Absolutely! Our London Pass is available for advance purchase despite attractions being currently closed. If you purchase a pass now, you can have peace of mind that:

    - Passes are at the lowest prices of the season and you can start your experience any time within 2 years from the time of purchase

    - We have a flexible return policy. Passes purchased during this promotional period may be returned within 30 days, with no questions asked

     - You are supporting the tourism recovery effort and helping our family of attraction partners!

  • How should I prepare for my upcoming trip?

    We recommend you check the travel advisory from your local authority for travel planning.

    However, we do advise checking opening times of attractions directly on the attraction website and if unsure we’re on hand to help through our various customer service channels, detailed below.

    We also know that your future travel plans may change, that’s why we’re offering 30-day free cancellation. Plus, you have up to 2 years to start using your pass - and you don’t have to commit to the date in advance. This means you can plan your sightseeing safely in the knowledge that you’re protected if things change.

    We recommend you monitor the local government’s website for updates on the situation on a local level, as well as checking the travel guidelines for your country.

    Yes, the London Pass comes with a handy 160+ page Guidebook packed with information about each attraction, maps and helpful information about the city. It comes in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese.

  • Can I skip the lines?

    London has so many great things to see and to do it's no wonder it is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Did you know a record breaking 17.4 million visitors came to London in 2014 alone?

transport

  • How does the Oyster Travelcard work when you have The London Pass + Travel

    The Oyster Card is an electronic travelcard designed to facilitate journeys across London on the extensive transport network. The Oyster Card will come pre-charged with a credit value respective to your London Pass duration, and can be used at any time of day, any day of the week.

    Your Oyster Card can be used on the public buses, the underground network as well as overground trains and the DLR. The Oyster Card will never expire so it makes a great investment if you plan on coming to London in the future.

    To find out more about Oyster Travelcard, click here.

  • When and where can I use the Oyster Card?

    The Oyster Card can be used across all buses, tubes, overground trains and the DLR. It can be used any time and any day the public transport networks are running. To find out more about opening times of the London transport network, visit the Transport for London website.

    You can use your Oyster Card without activating your London Pass - as your pass will only become activated at first use at an attraction.

  • Is the transport limited to certain hours of the day?

    Oyster Cards can be used any time of day, any day of the week the network is running, normally from approximately 05:30am until approximately 12:30am, depending on the service.

    Please check the Transport for London website for more information about times and line closures before you travel.

     
  • Can I use The London Pass from the airport?

    If you have your order shipped to you before you travel and you fly into Heathrow Airport then you can use your Oyster Travelcard on the London Underground to travel into central London. The Oyster Travelcard would also cover use on the DLR trains from London City Airport as well. Using your Oyster Card to travel into Central London from Gatwick will incur a higher charge (up to £19.80 one-way on the Gatwick Express, for example) so we would advise against using it from this airport.

    The Travelcard doesn’t cover transport to and from Luton Airport and Stansted Airports. 

  • Can I buy the London Pass with Travel anywhere?

    No, the London Pass with Travel can only be purchased online in advance.

  • How do I get to Windsor Castle?

    Travel to and from Windsor is included with the London Pass and the London Pass + Travel package. 

    Show your London Pass to the ticket controller when boarding the train at Paddington (for a train to Slough, and change for Windsor & Eton Central) and you can travel for free. Full details can be found in your London Pass Guidebook or on the Windsor Castle attraction page. The journey should take around 30 minutes. 

    Note: Do NOT use your Oyster Card to get through the barrier as it might charge you.

  • Will the Oyster Card activate my London Pass?

    The London Pass will only become activated after first use at an attraction. So you can start using your Oyster Card independently of the London Pass and continue to use your Oyster Card after your London Pass has expired if you are staying in the city longer.

  • How do you define a Child London Pass (+ Travel)?

    Children under 11 years of age can travel for free on London Transport with an Adult holding a valid Oyster Card. Children between 11 – 15 with a 1, 2, 3, 6 and 10 day London Pass + Travel Package will receive Daily/Weekly Paper Visitor Travelcards.

    Please be aware that a 1-Day Child Pass up to a 6-day Child Pass will grant you the equivalent 1-daily to 6-Daily Paper Visitor Travelcards. A 10-Day Child Pass will grant you 1-Weekly + 3 Daily Paper Visitor Travelcards. Each Daily Paper Visitor Travelcard is only useable for one day.

  • What is the £5 admin fee on the Oyster Travelcard package?

    The £5 admin charge is a fee added on by Transport for London to cover the cost of producing the Oyster Cards. This is a non-refundable fee that is unavoidably added to every Oyster Travelcard order.

    It does mean that the card is yours forever as you do not have to return the card after use, or throw it away. Providing the Oyster Card has credit, it can be used at a later date as the card never expires.

  • If my child (under 11) doesn't need a travelcard or Oyster Card, how will they get through the barriers?

    Children under 11 can travel on the London Transport network for free, accompanied by an adult holding a valid Oyster Card. Please go to the wider gates at the side where a member of staff can let you through without a ticket.

  • Can I store my luggage somewhere while using my London Pass?

    Stasher have locations across the world where you can store your bag while you explore the city. Exclusive to Pass holders only, bookings can be made online here and use the code LONDONPASS for 15% off.  

     

validity

  • How does The London Pass work

    The London Pass is simple and easy to use, check out the Guidebook, app or website to choose where you wish to visit. Show the London Pass card at the entrance or ticket office of any attraction included, they will scan the card and give you entrance at no further cost. Show your card and head straight inside - it's as easy as that!

    The London Pass is valid for a calendar day and is subject to a "credits value" - check out How It Works for further information.

  • Are the 2 day, 3 day, 6 day and 10 day London Passes for consecutive days?

    Yes, all London Passes are to be used on consecutive days - NOT 24 hours. For example, if you have a 3 day London Pass and start using it on a Tuesday, it will be valid for that day, Wednesday and Thursday.

    Note: If you start using you London Pass in the evening or late in the day that will count as your first day.

  • How do I enter attractions with the London Pass?

    Simply scan your London Pass at an attraction entrance or ticket desk to redeem your sightseer credits to enter the attraction. Credits will be deducted with each attraction visit, starting with your first visit.

  • Who am I buying entry from?

    Your sightseer credits are redeemed with the London Pass (not individual attractions).

  • What is the "Credits Value"

    Each London Pass is subject to a credits value based on the duration of the Pass.

    The credits value is a maximum amount you're able to use based on the standard gate price for each attraction. For example; with a 6 day Adult London Pass (Price: £171) you can visit attractions up to the total attraction cost of £625!

    Here is a breakdown of the credits value for each London Pass:

    1 Day Adult - £175.00
    2 Day Adult - £297.00
    3 Day Adult - £385.00
    6 Day Adult - £625.00
    10 Day Adult - £925.00

    1 Day Child - £145.00
    2 Day Child - £195.00
    3 Day Child - £245.00
    6 Day Child - £370.00
    10 Day Child - £510.00

    If you want to check your remaining credits value, you can call our Customer Service team +44 20 7293 0972.

  • What happens if I change the date of my trip to London

  • What should I do if my plans change due to COVID-19?
