It’s really that simple!


The London Pass has been designed so you don’t have to carry around cash or queue to buy tickets; saving you time and money. As well as this, you can feel like a VIP with the London Pass as you are granted Fast Track Entry into a select number of London’s most popular attractions.

How do I start using my London Pass?

You can start using your London Pass whenever you like, it will only become activated upon entry at the first attraction you visit. We always advise customers to start using their pass first thing in the morning as from then on it works on a consecutive day basis, not 24 hour period. So to make sure you get the most out of your pass duration use your pass as early as possible to get a full first day.

You can get your London Passes delivered instantly to your smartphone, mailed to your home address, or you can collect them when you arrive in London.

How long can I use my London Pass for?

The London Pass is available for 1, 2, 3, 6 or 10 days meaning you can choose the duration of Pass that best matches your trip for maximum flexibility.You can use your London Pass from the day you activate it until the last day of your pass duration. Your pass will automatically expire at the end of your 1, 2, 3, 6 or 10 days. After your pass has expired the card will stop working and will not allow you entry into any further attractions.

The London Pass is also subject to a “purse value” of maximum gate prices (a total value of attraction entries) related to the number of days on your pass. For example; with a 6 day adult London Pass (online price: £154) you get a whopping £605 worth of attraction entry! If you exceed your “purse value”, the pass will expire. Here is a complete breakdown of purse values.
