What is The London Pass® sightseeing credits package?
The London Pass® is a sightseeing credits package that grants you access to 90+ London attractions. You simply purchase your desired credits package and redeem your credits to gain access to the attractions. Your credits reduce as you redeem them for entry.
You can choose either a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 10 – consecutive day sightseeing credit package, which is subject to a "credit value" - see below for more information on "credit values".
Each pass is subject to a value of a maximum credit and you are unable to exceed this. 1 credit is worth £1 and your credits are redeemed when you enter attractions, reducing by the amount of the standard gate price of the attraction you enter.
The maximum credits value per pass type is listed below:
- 1-day London Pass credits package: adult 180 max credit / child 145 max credit

- 7-day London Pass credits package: adult 785 max credit / child 515 max credit
- 10-day London Pass credits package: adult 865 max credit / child 555 max credit
Once you've purchased a sightseeing credits package it's easy; you simply scan your pass at any of the attractions to access them.
You can find out how many credits you have left at any point by simply contacting our customer support team.
How does the Go City app work?
The Go City app is your key to exploring the city. Download for free to your Apple or Android device and then follow the instructions in your confirmation email to sync your pass to the app. Once you arrive in the city, all you've got to do is show your pass at each attraction.
Plus, we've loaded the app with plenty of useful attraction info, itineraries, and much more to make planning and exploring even easier.
What are the main benefits of The London Pass®?
The London Pass® gives you access to over 80 of the best tourist attractions in London. No tickets, no hassle – just sightseeing.
If you purchase a London Pass with Oyster Travelcard, you can also travel across all London underground and bus services with a prepaid Oyster Card.
Each pass comes with a free guidebook and also entitles you to a range of great offers around the city.
Does The London Pass® come with a guidebook?
Yes, The London Pass® comes with a handy 160+ page guidebook. It is packed with information about each attraction, maps, and helpful tips about the city. It comes in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and Japanese.
Do I have to make reservations for attractions?
Certain attractions will require a reservation. If this is the case, you will find all booking information listed on our reservations page and the individual attraction pages on our website and app. Some advance reservations will require a pass number or order reference number to secure your booking. This will not activate your pass.
What is the London Pass Savings Guarantee?
With our passes, we guarantee that you’ll save on your sightseeing. However, if it turns out you could have saved by buying individual attraction tickets, rather than using your pass, we’ll refund you the difference.
You’ll need to have scanned your pass at least three time per day, every day per life of pass.
You can submit your claim by emailing us on [email protected]. Be sure to provide the following:
Your order confirmation number (this can be found on your confirmation of purchase email).
Screenshots of entry prices from the attraction's website or from any other travel websites that prove that the combined cost of attractions you visited would have been cheaper than the cost of our passes.
We'll review your claim and will respond within 7-10 business days.
How much can I save with The London Pass®?
With our credits package, you save up to 50% vs. buying individual tickets at top attractions (the sights you guys visit the most).
Our savings compare the London Pass price with the combined 'normal ticket values' of each attraction on our sample itineraries. Individual savings may vary. Normal ticket values include taxes and are the price you pay at the most popular time to visit without discounts.
Please note prices at attractions can vary without notice to The London Pass. Normal ticket values were last updated on April 1, 2023.
How can I find out how much credit I have left on my pass?

Can I visit the same attraction twice with my London Pass®?
You can only visit each attraction once. Repeat entry is not allowed.
Can children visit attractions on their own?
When visiting attractions, children must be accompanied by an adult or may be refused admission.
Is The London Pass® suitable for those with disabilities and their carers?
Some attractions may offer carer places or free entry to visitors with disabilities, so The London Pass® might not be the most suitable for them as requirements vary from attraction to attraction. Please contact them directly for further information.
Can I buy The London Pass® when I am in London?
Of course! You will receive your email confirmation shortly after purchase, which will allow you to download your pass to your smartphone instantly.
What age range is a child pass for?
Children are aged between five and 15 years. Children under five years are free.
Note: children under the age of 11 who are accompanied by an adult with a valid travel ticket can travel for free on the London Underground.
Do you offer discounts for groups, students or senior citizens?
Unfortunately not. The London Pass® has been specially created to help visitors save both time and money through the use of the product.
Please Note: groups of more than 10 may not be allowed access to some attractions included on The London Pass®.
Can I buy The London Pass® for a group?
We don't have any restrictions when purchasing through the website, however, The London Pass® is not designed for large groups of travellers.
Please note: groups of more than 10 may be refused entry at some attractions. We advise if you are in a group of over 10 that you contact each attraction in advance.
How do I use an offer code or discount code?
If you have an offer code you can enter this on the checkout page after you have chosen your product(s).
Note: offer codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount.
Why haven't I received my email confirmation?
Purchased a pass but still waiting for your confirmation email? Or has your order been declined? If so, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
- You submitted an incomplete or incorrect billing address.
- Your 3D Secure authentication failed.
- Your bank did not process the transaction as a safety precaution and requires further authorization from you.
- There was a typo in the email address.
If you’re sure that all of the above details were correct, please contact us via live chat so we can help resolve the issue.
Oh, and don’t forget to double check your junk folder – sometimes our confirmation emails accidentally end up there.
Can I buy The London Pass® as a gift for someone else? Are they named with the card holder's name?
Passes are not printed with any names. This means that they make the perfect gift.
All passes are valid for 24 months from the date of purchase, so you can gift them for use at a later date and they will only become activated at first use at an attraction.
How does the Oyster Card work when you have The London Pass® + Travelcard?
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 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.
Please note: UK customers should allow 2 weeks for their Visitor Oyster card to arrive. Customers across the rest of the world should allow up to 4 weeks for their Visitor Oyster card to arrive.
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.
Can I use the Oyster Card to get to and 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.
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 London Pass + Travel Package will receive Daily/Weekly Paper Visitor Travelcards.
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 has locations across the world where you can store your bag while you explore the city. Exclusive to passholders only, bookings can be made online here, and use the code LONDONPASS for 15% off.
Do I need to use my pass on consecutive days?
Yes, all passes are to be used on consecutive days. For example, if you have a 3-day pass and start using it on a Tuesday, it will be valid for that day, Wednesday and Thursday.
Please note: if you start using your 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?

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 the maximum amount you're able to use based on the standard gate price for each attraction. For example; with a 5-day Adult London Pass you can visit attractions up to the total attraction cost of £575!
Here is a breakdown of the credits value for each London Pass®:
1-day London Pass credits package: adult 165 max credit / child 150 max credit
2-day London Pass credits package: adult 265 max credit / child 235 max credit
