I was traveling with a group of 11 (3 adults, the rest students) so we thought the pass would be perfect so we didn't need to stand in lines to purchase tickets to anything. They advertise skip the lines. Well, we had to stand in line everywhere. There was no skip the line. Lines were long and we weren't able to see and do everything we had planned. The office closes too early. We weren't able to make it there the first day due to unforeseen circumstances at the airport. We lost an entire day. I only purchased the pass for 3 days...as we were going to be there only 3 days. I don't think it was worth it for what we were able to actually see and do. It would have been cheaper to purchase individual tickets. They need to stop advertising skip the lines, as not one place honored the skip the line.

Make sure you plan out your days ahead of time as some places close early. We bought the 3day pass with travel card. so easy to use. Hop on Hop off and river cruises very nice with free entrance to most all sites. Heading out to Windsor Castle took a little longer that planned. If you go, leave early. we missed the express train.

In my recent 4 days 3 nights London tour with my husband, we bought 2 days London Pass. The price was £98 per person, but we bought it with 10% discount.
The entrance to almost every attraction in London was free with it, except London Eye, Madame Tussauds, Dungeon, Sea Life, Sherk Experience, Lord's Tour etc. So we visited these attractions on the first and the last days of our tour. And we used the London Pass for the remaining 2 whole days.
We started with Westminster Abbey which opens at 10 AM. Then visited the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace. Then took Hop On Hop Off bus to St. Paul's Cathedral, followed by Tower Bridge experience and in the evening, the View from the Shard.
The next day we started with Tower of London, followed by Cutty Sark, Greenwich Meridian Line, Royal Observatory. Then took a sight seeing Thames river cruise
(free with London Pass) back to Westminster from Greenwich.
Apart from that we enjoyed discount in buying tokens from The Shard, Nauticalia and Crest of London with London Pass.
Definitely there were so many other attractions which have free entries but we could not cover all in only 2 days. As per our calculation, we saved more than hundred GBP with London Pass.

If you buy the London Pass you will miss a lot of major attractions.
An additional issue: A lot of the listed attractions are bullying the owners of the London Pass. They will let you wait and wait untill you quit waiting and leave. This is very disgusting.
The London Pass is more marketing, then a real advantage.
Its only a Money machine for the company behind.
Urgent suggestion: Don‘t buy the London Pass!

We bought it to save time, however there is no priority entrance for any of the good locations where there is an actual queue, the hop on-off tour companies included suck, the London eye is no-longer included, and sometimes you have LESS priority than people with normal tickets, like at the Churchill war rooms, where London Pass holders wait 2+hours for a queue of 20 people. Shame...
