Benefits

The London City Pass by Turbopass is a great all rounder.   For the first time visitor the pass ticks off enough of the big hitting attractions, including the Shard and the Tower of London.  And even if you have visited before, the slightly off the beaten track sights will keep you entertained too. We also like the longer the pass duration the cheaper it gets. For example.  A one day pass costs you £76.90  per day without transport. But take the 7 day pass at £159.90 – that’s a per day cost of just £22!!

Cons

To be honest, this pass is a pretty good all rounder. I guess you could say that the strict validity period restricts you, as it starts on the first day and you have to use it consecutively. But if you are only coming to London for a short period it’s not going to bother you at all.

Note also if you go for the travel card option there is an additional £5 activation fee and a £3 service charge included.  So its slightly more expensive than if you get it yourself.

For whom is the London Turbopass intended ?

We’re pretty happy with the setup of the London City Pass. It covers enough of the common attractions to make a first time visitor feel pretty good about ticking off the main things to do in London.  The add on for the transport is pretty simple and means you have one less thing to do when you get there.  For those with kids on a weekend break the pass will help you keep control of your budget.  And that even more true for anyone coming to London for up to  7 days. It can be super expensive otherwise!

What you save with the London Turbopass ?

The savings on the London City Pass can be pretty good. Here’s an example.

Say you’re in London for a week. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend buying a 7 day pass here. Why’s that you ask? Well, London already has some pretty amazing free attractions. Some of the museums for example are world class, and free to enter.  So, we would recommend you spend a couple of days checking  out the free things to do in London. 

After that, you only really need a 4 day pass. Aim to hit off 2 major attractions every day. If you have time, then you can go to some of the lower value attractions too.

During your 4 pass days, you’ll want to visit the most expensive sites.  Below, we have listed the priciest attractions on the pass available . In total, visiting all of these would cost you £245.90.  

Now, we’ve already seen that a 4 day adult pass costs £134.90. So if you got that, and ONLY visited the attractions below, you would save a whopping  £111!  And that’s even before you fit in some of the smaller, cheaper attractions available on the pass.

  • The View from the Shard £34.00 
  • London Eye £30.00 
  • Madame Tussaud´s £35.00 
  • London Dungeon £30.00 
  • Shrek´s Adventure £27,50 
  • Hop on Hop off Bus £39.00 
  • Tower of London £28.90
  • Kensington Palace £21.50

Is the London City TurboPass worth it – My opinion

This little pass for London is, in our opinion, one of the best value you can get for a trip to London. The longer the duration you pick the cheaper it gets!

london pass tipTips to get the most of your London Turbopass

Don’t get the pass for the full duration of your trip – leave a couple of days pass free to enjoy all of London’s many very good free attractions.

Don’t use your pass on the first day you arrive if you get into London Late . The London City Pass will activate at the first attraction, so if you use  it first time to go to the Shard at nighttime then you’ve wasted a full day.  Wait until the morning to activate.

Go for the transport card for maximum ease of use. You’ll not need to worry about faffing around the station trying to buy an Oyster card.
