London is one of the world’s great cities. In fact, it is the most visited city in the world by measure of footfall every year. The city contains a wide range of historically and culturally important sites, there is far too much to see in just a day or two.
Fortunately, London has a public transport system that makes travelling around the city easy. The extensive tube network, the London Underground, is the oldest underground rail system in the world, and a variety of passes are available that allow travellers to save money on their fare. There are also frequent buses above ground and the city’s famous black cabs which make all of London easily accessible.
For those who really want to take in everything the city has to offer, or who want to save the money they would otherwise have to spend on transport, walking around the city is the best way to truly experience everything it has to offer. The London Explorer Pass means that you can explore the city with the certainty that you will be able to access some of its most sought after attractions.
What Is the London Explorer Pass?
The London Explorer Pass grants the holder free entry to a number of different attractions dotted throughout the city. There are 20 attractions in total, including the London Eye, Madame Tussauds, and the London Bus Tour.
The pass can be purchased in one of three variants, one offering access to three attractions, the next for five, and the final version for seven.
