The London Pass = Anyone Done This?

I added up the costs of all the places we want to tour and it was over $450 US for two. I saw the London Pass online and for 71.10 pounds each, I can get into all the attractions I want plus can get a 3 day tube travel card out of it.
Anyone ever used these? It seems like a great deal - thoughts?

here is a link with info/listing of whats covered.

Be aware that you need to buy a National Rail paper travelcard at a mainline train station to qualify for the 2for1 offers listed on the Days Out Guide. Travelcards bought at a Tube station won't work for those deals. You can buy them for one, three, or seven days.

I am still leaning towards the London Pass (sans the travel option). We want to visit Kensington Palace, Kew Gardens, Hampton Court, WWII museum, etc. All of the historical places we want to tour, charge a fee and the London Pass would save us about 20 pounds total. Not sure what to do yet. The 2for1 deals look a bit confusing to me.

The 2for1 deals are easy. Just register on the site (free) and print out the vouchers. You have to know the date you're going there. Bring the voucher with you and you get two people in for the price of one.

How many places are you visiting over how many days? My wife and I will be in London next month and even adding up all the places we plan to visit, the London Pass still cost more than we would spend for admissions.

Jennifer, I did the pass about 3 or 4 years ago, and I felt I "had" to use it to make my money's worth. I ended up running around like a headless chicken.

Its not that good of a deal, but more of a time saver. You can bypass lines but really, most of the attractions do not have that big of a ticket line to begin with. You'll end up queuing with the other people.

I'd buy a 1 day pass to use for the attractions that you "must do"... and plan on getting up early and going to 2 or 3 attractions to break even.

Skip the transportation part. Get the paper version of the Travel Card for 2:1 deals.
