Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,500 reviews

We were able to get admission quickly and easily with the QR code. We were able to save quite a few £ by purchasing the Go City Explorer Pass.

It is the most advantageous pass, and valid for a long time, unlike the London pass. We took 6 attractions, doable in 3 days.

The pass is great, the prices are cheaper. However, at some attractions you have to queue at the ticket office.

Excellent, you save time and money if you go to the fullest visiting what you like, super super recommended !!

Pass was too good interesting and adventurous. I enjoyed every place that I visited.
