The Definitive London Travel Guide
The GoSee Card and London Pass
For the really serious museum addict, the GoSee Card gives
you entry into around twenty museums and galleries, from the
Design Museum and the Hayward Gallery to the National
Maritime Museum and Shakespeare's Globe Museum. The
three-day card costs £16 (though this gives you too little time to
visit all the above); the seven-day card costs £26. Even better
value is the Family Card, which covers two adults and up to four
children and costs £32 for three days or £50 for seven. The
cards are available from any of the above museums or galleries,
and at LTB and LT offices; for more information, phone
020/7923 0807 or visit www.london-gosee.com.
An alternative to the GoSee Card is the new London Pass ,
which not only gives you entry to a whole range of attractions
from the London Aquarium and Buckingham Palace to St Paul's
Cathedral and Windsor Castle, but also throws in an all-zone
Travelcard, £5 worth of free phone calls and various other perks
and incentives. The pass costs £22 for one day, £49 for three
days, and £79 for six days. However, the London Pass is
currently in its infancy, more sights need to be added to its
portfolio if it's going to compete for value with the GoSee Card.
The London Pass can be bought over the phone (tel 0870/242
9988) or on the Internet ( www.londonpass.com).
