"We combined the London Pass with a 7-day Travelcard and saved a bundle. The London Pass allowed us to skip the queues for most attractions we visited, more time spent actually enjoying the things we went to see. The Travelcard made using public transit very simple and saved us a ton of money. Anyone who is thinking about a London vacation should consider buying the London Pass and the Travelcard."
