London sightseeing package deals can take the stress out of your vacation planning and save you money.
Is planning a London family vacation fun or just stressful? Even if trip planning is your passion, it’s easy to get carried away with the details when it comes to London. There are so many interesting attractions and places of interest that you must narrow your selections down to those that interest your family the most.
That’s where London sightseeing package deals come into play. Instead of selecting, booking, and paying for every attraction on your itinerary individually, you can buy one package that covers multiple attractions at once. Think of it as bundling attractions to get a price break, but it’s convenient and speeds up the process of trip planning as well.
The question is what sightseeing package deals are best for your family. We’re going to share some of our favorites to help you find the perfect deal for your budget and your interests.
Get a discount when you buy tickets to six attractions in one package:
Spirit of London is a hop-on, hop-off bus tour that allows you to choose how often and where you get on and off the bus. You can use it as a full-day adventure, wandering through the city and getting off at any stop that appeals to you in the moment. You can also use it as a planned form of transportation, getting off at stations close to attractions that you want to see.
The estimated cost for all attractions at the gate is £145.20. The cost of the London Gold Bundle starts at £109.50 for a maximum savings of £35.70, or about 25%.
Visit the following three attractions and save approximately 32% off the cost at the gate:
You can add a discounted lunch at Planet Hollywood for an additional £15.85.
Think of these London sightseeing package deals as an attractions package that comes with a fully guided tour of London. The tour lasts about 8.5 hours and includes tickets for the following attractions:
All of these attractions are stopping points on your guided tour itinerary. The tickets are included in the cost of the tour, which starts at £105.00 per adult.
Buy a hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour from The Original Tour and get discounted tickets to select London attractions. You decide which attractions you bundle with your tour tickets. You should save between 15% and 20%, depending on the attractions bundled.
Many of London’s must-see attractions are included in this deal, including Shrek’s Adventure, KidZania, Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussauds, and London Dungeon. Our favorite option is the London Tour + Attractions Package. You save 20% on admission to the London Eye, Sea Life London, and Madame Tussauds.
Buy a 24-hour river pass from City Cruises and bundle tickets to some of London’s must-see attractions. You choose which attraction you want to bundle, choosing from the following options:
The maximum savings is 20%, and you may save less on some attractions. You may get a better deal with other bundles, but it doesn’t hurt to get this discount on top of another attractions package if you’re going to buy a river cruise anyway.
The answer varies, depending on the cost of the London sightseeing package deals and the individual price of the included attractions.
The age of your children may also factor into your total savings. Each London attraction has its own policy on admitting children for free or at a reduced rate. It’s important to determine whether it’s cheaper to pay the price of the attractions package to get a child into one attraction when other attractions in the deal would admit the child for free without the deal.
To maximize savings, check the individual entrance fees for each attraction included in the deal first. Make sure to consider the cost of perks that come with the deal like cutting to the front of the line at some attractions. A quick price comparison will tell you which deals offer the biggest savings for your family.
The best way to buy a sightseeing package deal is to purchase online in advance of your trip. You would ideally book tickets for your must-see attractions before leaving for London anyway, so it makes sense to do the same with your packaged deals. If there is no way to buy a deal online, then make sure that is one of the first things you do when arriving in London.
