The London Pass

Go to the London Pass website to get The London Pass and get free entry to over 55 attractions and tours, and be able to skip the lines at various attractions as well as a guidebook with information about the attractions. And you can add a travel card option for unlimited travel on all public transport in London. There are additional special offers and discounts at many shops and restaurants.
You order the card onlne and choose the duration and, if desired, add the travel option. Then you can either have it sent to you or pick it up in London.
If you only visit the top ten attrations in London the London Pass will save you money even if you add the travel option. If you visit other sites, you will save even more.

There are three major airports that serve London: Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick. In addition, there is London City Airport (closest airport to Central London) and London Luton Airport (a favourite with budget travellers.)

There is a variety of public and private transportation options available that you can use to get from the airport to your hotel.
