When you arrive at the attractions you only need to show your pass at the entrance. After swiping your pass through a special reader you are ready to enjoy the attraction.
In several busy attractions you can save a lot of time by jumping the queue.
According to the producer, savings for 3 top attractions per day are on average:
1-day pass - $18
2-day pass - $45
3-day pass - $73
7-day pass - $196
Hence generally it is a good choice if you are willing to visit more than just 1 or 2 attractions during your stay.
It's obvious that longer multi-day passes (3 & 7 days) let you save more because their daily cost is smaller than shorter passes.
The pass is produced by Leisure Pass Group Ltd, member of the European Association of Tour Operators and of Visit London, the official London tourism organization.
