A vacation spent in London is a dream for, well, the majority of Earth’s generation (and I don’t mean to sound haughty at all). Unfortunately, not that many people can or necessarily want to spend a small fortune on London’s attractions, venues and bars – they would rather buy a house for this amount of money… But for those who really do want to come and visit one of Europe’s oldest, richest in sights and loved capitals – there are ways to reduce your expenses.
- London Pass
- Website Discounts
- 2 for 1 Deals
- The Dungeons
In other words – those who seek will find; in this case you are lucky to have found a short summing up of the different offers on London’s attractions: joint tickets, passes for every venue, websites for discounts and anything else that might lower down the money you spend on entrance fees at the beautiful attractions of London!
London Pass – A pass to sightseeing in London
Once you’ve bought this pass, you can enter more than 60 attractions in London – this is basically all the attractions that you may actually wish to see. Why buy a pass for all of them if you can’t possibly see 60 places only for a few days? Because if you visit 5 or 6 of the more expensive places you are very likely to have paid the price of the pass already.
Firstly, you should know that there are different kind of London Pass offers. You can buy a pass for a different period of time – 1,2,3,6 or 10 days. You can buy it beforehand, even weeks before you arrive and it will be activated on the date that you first use it. Just don’t forget that the valid period is calculated using dates, not on a 24-hour basis; for example, if the first attraction you see with your 3 day London Pass is visited on 01.01.2017, the last day you can use it would be 03.01.2017 – on the next day you won’t be able to take advantage of your pass, even if you started using it in the evening of 01.01.2017. So I’d advise you to start sightseeing from the early beginning of the day in order to make the most of your pass!
Also, keep in mind that there are differences in prices for children of course! Here you can see the different prices and order right away! I know it seems a bit salty for sightseeing but face it – the amount you would actually save is larger than the price of the London Pass.
And Here you can browse trough all the attractions that the London Pass covers: museums, art galleries, historic buildings, theaters, cinemas, zoos even boat cruises and backstage tours!
There are a few more advantages about the London Pass. The first and very important one is that you can save a lot of time – and thus have more time for more attractions – by jumping queues! Yes, without being shouted at. Look for signs of London Pass at the entrance of the venue or see Here which attractions offer priority entry without waiting for holders of the London pass.
And the last of many more things I am going to mention is the offer to combine the London Pass with a Travelcard at a discount. This way you can be sure you’ve covered most of your expenses – on getting around and on actually seeing London – even before your arrival!
Discounts on Websites
If you think that the London Pass is too much of an investment or you are planning on visiting only very few attractions while in London, then you can take advantage of smaller packages (including 2-4 attractions, for example) or look for temporarily reduced entries to interesting places in London. There are quite a few websites that offer such discounts and packages, but I will now introduce you to the best ones.
The Original Tour is the most trusted way to get to know London – by seeing every significant detail and hearing enough about its history. A ticket for such a tour offers access to bus routes that cover more than 80 stops around London (an audio tour guide included), 3 Walking Tours and a Thames River Cruise Pass. It is one of the best ways to gather all the sights of London – you can hear about the history of each monument, venue, building, museum, theater and more more; you can hop off the bus to take pictures and look more closely and then hop on the next! The tickets offer access to the buses for 24 and 48 hours and the prices are very decent – £30 for and adult 24-hour ticket and £40 for an adult 48-hour ticket (you can upgrade from 24 to 48 hours at any time!).
And it gets better. You can also find special offers combining a tour ticket with a ticket for some venue or teathre like the Tower of London, The London Eye, The Zoo and more. You can browse trough the current offers HERE.
Another great website for ticket treasures is the London Discount Hotel. And no, it’s not for hotels only, that is just the name – it is an established and trusted websites that comes up with extremely tempting offers without charging any extra fees for their service! You can find fresh offers for exhibitions, shows, attractions, tours and more on almost ridiculous prices!
The website also offers package deals where you can choose a combination of 2 or more tours, cruises or sights! Here you can see all the current offers with their prices.
Wondering what this is? Some call it the most exciting attraction of London. It invites the regular tourist to dive not only into London’s history and experience but in the most significant periods of the world’s history! A true experience that is worth having, The Dungeon ‘Show’ is a live performance of…well, the past several hundreds of years. You can see a short preview of what they offer.
In combination with The Dungeons you can choose up to three more attractions to see and save up to £60 from tickets! You can choose to add a ticket to the London Eye, to Madame Tussaud, The London Aquarium and more https://www.thedungeons.com/london/en/book-tickets/london-attractions-combi-tickets.aspx

And the last website that is very popular around tourists is Days Out which offers various combinations of more that 150 attractions including entries to two places for the price of only one! It may take you some time to pick only 2 attractions out of London’s many treasures, but in such a case – remember that you can visit 4, 6 and even more!
I hope that bringing you into the world of possibilities for seeing dozens of London’s attractions was not that overwhelming! There are many options of course, but you know best – take into account the duration of your stay, the time will have for sightseeing, the amount of money you want to spend and the number of attractions you would like to check out; then just go trough the options again and see which is most suitable for your trip!
I also hope you found those websites useful and that you will manage to save up on your London sightseeing; this way you will have more money to spend around in bars and restaurants which are not a lesser attraction for the capital!
