London is without a doubt one of the world’s most intriguing cities. The UK capital’s streets are infused with a unique combination of history and modern culture that help make it a truly fascinating place to explore and discover.
The city is absolutely crammed with attractions of all natures, from fine art galleries and interactive museums to Royal palaces and buildings of massive historical significance. The only problem you will face on a visit to London is deciding upon which landmarks and sights to see in such a short space of time – the city is so huge, it would take a month to see them all!
One great way of getting around this conundrum is by utilising the handy London Pass, an all-inclusive sightseeing pass that you can purchase at a fixed rate. Once you have this precious document in your possession you are bestowed with access to more than 55 of the city’s finest attractions, all at no extra costs – sounds great, doesn’t it?
The top ten attractions you can take part in on the London Pass are as follows: A Thames River Cruise (one trip only), The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge Experience, Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge Exhibition, Hampton Court Palace and the Churchill War Rooms.
Perhaps the best bit about the London Pass is that it allows you to skip the huge queues that often form outside the city’s most popular landmarks. For example, the fast-track option is available at both the Windsor Castle and Tower of London, two sights that can get remarkably busy during peak season.
Even though many of the best museums in London are actually free, there are still some that cost to enter and that’s where the pass comes in handy. Places like Kensington Palace and the Tower of London are not free to enter and with a London Pass on your person you will be entitled to safe passage through their doors without charge.
