London, it should come as no surprise, is a rather large town. In fact, as a bustling world trade center with the distinction of being one of only a handful of world-class cities, it can be downright intimidating.
The London Pass is an excellent introduction to London and serves as the perfect companion to any day out in that wonderful city.
It offers a wealth of information, as well as a sort of digital security blanket for the anxious traveller. And with a free price tag to try it out, there’s really no downside!

Concept and Functionality
If you have ever used a tourism book in your life (think a big blue book with all kinds of useful info) then you’re already up to speed with what it has to offer.
The London Pass is packed to the gills with useful tit-bits, enough to ensure your holiday abroad goes well no matter how much you know about the city.
For instance, the app offers full day-out itineraries. This saves you the need to hire a guide, and insures you see the absolute most during the time you’ve got. On-top of that, it provides detailed information about the monuments in your area.
This includes opening times, operating costs, and any other relevant points that might prevent you from otherwise having a great tour.
On top of this, The London Pass comes with a good assortment of static maps, allowing you to find your way about without using Internet connectivity.
This is especially useful for those that are coming from across the pond, and who may or may not have a cellular network to prey upon.
Throw in a heaping helping of photos, bus & tube maps, directions, and restaurant recommendations, and you’ve got yourself a world-class utility.
Plus, there’s no need to flip madly through pages while waiting for currency exchange! The digital nature of it all makes things so much simpler: a definite boon, indeed.
Design and Interface
Along those lines, it’s worth noting that one would have to be slightly daft to avoid the bulk of the content here.
It’s downright simple to navigate what The London Pass has to offer: no matter what we needed, we had no problem locating, using and then stowing away the data points thusly contained.
With a bright interface, lots of photos, and plenty of easily-accessed menu options, we greatly prefer the The London Pass experience to just about any guide book we have ever encountered. Truly great stuff, lads!
At the end of the day, The London Pass is a no-brainer recommendation for those heading toward the capital. If you plan to spend any amount of time in London, the few seconds it takes to download The London Pass will be well worth it.
Even if you’ve just been curious about the city, the app represents a brilliant way to learn.
For all these needs and more, the Android Apps Review gives the app a solid 4.5 out of 5, as well as our heartiest of recommendations!
