A London Travelcard is available with every London Pass and makes your sightseeing experience more relaxing and cost efficent.

The benefits of a London Travelcard include:

  • Unlimited journeys on all London Underground, Buses, Trams, Docklands Light Rail and Over-ground Trains within zones 1 – 6.

  • When you buy a 6 day London Pass with Travel you get a 7 day Travelcard – that’s a whole extra day for free.
