London ( ( listen) LUN-dən) is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south east of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia. It was founded by the Romans, who named it Londinium. London's ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its 1.12-square-mile (2.9 km2) medieval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century, "London" has also referred to the metropolis around this core, historically split between Middlesex, Essex, Surrey, Kent and Hertfordshire, which today largely makes up Greater London, a region governed by the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.

You really have to check whether it'll be advantageous or not depending on what you are planning to do before booking it. Keep in mind that a lot of museums (Science Museum, British museum) and places are free and that if you do less than 3 attractions (that you'd have to pay for without the pass) per day it's probably better to book it online in advance (otherwise you'll have to queue: the London pass does give you access to a lot of fast track lines which is great) If you're not worried about losing a little bit of money and want to have flexibility and freedom during your trip without having to plan everything ahead this is probably a good option though (you can go anywhere, whenever you want and still often have access to fast track lines)
Had the 6-day pass and it was definitely worth it. I was prepared and knew London a bit. Still occasionally had to run in order to get all done. However the possibility to see so many attractions and to find some hidden gems was a great experience indeed. Bought already the pass for my next trip. Planning is part of the fun!
Had a 10-day pass. Certainly saved time when gaining entry at numerous attractions, not just those with fast-track. Certainly convenient as did not have to get out money from ATM or topup travel card. However, not certain that it saved us money overall. Feel that you would need to visit two places each day to make it clearly a better alternative financially. Would recommend still.
The London Pass was very handy to have. It was a bit difficult trying to figure out how to get to the location to pick up our pass but we made it. It is a bit pricey but if you are willing to go all over, this is worth trying.
Make sure you print off your voucher. They won't accept it on mobile. Your best value is to use it to see many little things. If you just do one or two big things per day (which is especially likely in the off season when things close early) then the value is dubious. If you are only going to one or two things in a day then it may be cheaper to just pay for those things. On the other hand the pass lets you skip the long line to pay and may let you do small this on a whim since it's paid for anyway. If you can get it "free" with your hotel that makes the value a little better.
For us it was worth it. We bought the 3 day pass along with the Oyster card in advance. It was mailed to our home prior to leaving. We saved lots of money as we researched in advance and planned our visits according to our locations - e.g. Wimbledon Tour in the morning and the Hop on Hop off bus in the afternoon. It was also nice to not have to worry about having cash for entrance at each site. I would say if you are able to have the card sent to you in advance, plan in advance, know that it is consecutive days and hop on hop off bus is only one day it maybe worth it for you.
Deceptive conduct on price discounts and online payment Systems. Recommended find another operator to purchase directly like Viator. Can print your pass instantly no problems with going to their horrible office and dealing with horrible staff
I think two major issues. 1. You can’t avoid line at all in Abby and Windsor castle ( London pass and no ticket holder are teated same in line/queue that is 30 minutes to 1 hour long in bright sun of July). There is no line for other attractions so London pass does not matter . In all cases , you need to get actual ticket at counter after showing London pass so you are in line always . Don’t buy if you are buying for fast access ( I purchased to speed up line that was a mistake) . 2. You can’t cover all attraction in given days so money saving is subjective ( depending upon how many attraction you will cover ).
Before you buy the London pass, research the attractions thouroughly that you would like to view. The pass is only valid for consecutive calendar days. So much to see in a limited time. 60 Free attractions sounds wonderful but person can't possible fit in more than 2 /3 attractions into one full day.
DO NOT waste your money!!! In order to come close to breaking even, you have to go to several places right in a row and rush through. We still had to wait in lines, and at some places, had to wait in more lines than people buying tickets. Most attractions valid on the pass are just discounted, so you still have to fork out more money. Not sure if the other reviewers did the math when they were done, but I don't think it's possible to get your money's worth.
