World-famous clipper ship the Cutty Sark is among the new attractions introduced by the London Pass (www.londonpass.com) for summer 2015, as the popular sightseeing card adds even more value for visitors to the capital.
From 1 May London Pass holders will gain free entry to the ship, normally priced at £13.50 per person. The introduction of the Cutty Sark continues the London Pass’s development of Greenwich as a hub for its customers. Last autumn saw the Royal Observatory added to the portfolio, while the National Maritime Museum, Fan Museum and Wernher Collection at Ranger’s House are also offered, as is a one-day ‘hop-on, hop-off’ Thames City Cruises ticket which offers scenic transport to and from Greenwich.
The London Pass is also aiming to tap into the worldwide popularity of the BBC TV series Sherlock by introducing a one-hour guided Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour. Participants are invited to don deerstalkers and explore the locations featured in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original novels as well as a range of on-screen adaptations.
Normally priced at £10 per person, the Sherlock Holmes tour is the second Best LDN Walks tour to be included on the London Pass following the popular addition of the ‘Royal London – Tarts & Tiaras’ walk last year.
Another new introduction for May 2015 is the Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre. London Pass holders will now be able to experience a 3D film (normally £10 per person) on one of the UK’s largest cinema screens. The IMAX Theatre shows a range of educational films transporting visitors to the moon, under the sea or into deep space, with the 3D effect placing them right in the heart of the action.
Already a popular attraction on the London Pass, from May pass holders will be able to skip the queues with Fast Track access to the Tower Bridge Exhibition. This iconic London landmark, offering panoramic views of the Thames and a genuine piece of Victorian history, has become even more popular with the introduction of its glass walkways last summer. Normally £9, access for London Pass holders is free as well as fast!
London Pass holders simply show their cards at any featured attraction to gain admittance with nothing further to pay – making significant savings on their sightseeing in the city.
A one-day London Pass is priced at £49 per adult and £33 per child (aged 5-15), and on a one-day break visitors to the city can save after visiting just three attractions. As an example, paying independently to visit the Tower of London (normally £20), the London Bridge Experience (£24) and taking a Thames River Cruise (£18) would come to £62; London Pass holders enjoying the same attractions would save more than £10.
London Pass holders save not only money but time; the card includes queue-jumping privileges at a number of sought-after city attractions, ensuring they spend less time waiting to gain entry, and more time enjoying their chosen experience.
