LONDON, October 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
New attractions Introduced for Autumn 2015
Visitors to London this autumn will be able to learn more about some great British icons with the popular London Pass city sightseeing card (http://www.londonpass.com).
From 2 November The London Pass, which helps visitors to save time and money on their sightseeing, will introduce three new experiences giving visitors a real taste of British culture, both modern and historic.
Play it for laughs at the Museum of Comedy
Britons are known for their unique sense of humour, which has given rise to some of the world's greatest TV, radio and stage comedy. Visitors can learn more at London's Museum of Comedy, an interactive, immersive museum featuring more than 6,000 iconic props and artefacts from some of the most popular comedians and comedy shows both past and present.
Spot the handmade magic props belonging to legendary comic magician Tommy Cooper, caricature puppet heads from seminal 1980s TV show Spitting Image and the six-necked guitar used by leading surrealist comic Bill Bailey. Normally priced at £5 for adult and £4 for children, entry to the museum and revolving exhibitions is free with The London Pass.
Explore 19th century romance at the Keats House Museum
Explore the life and work of one of Britain's greatest poets, John Keats, through new exhibits of his original manuscripts and artefacts at his former home in Hampstead. Through these items visitors will be told the story of how Keats found inspiration, friendship and romance in his Regency villa, leading to such classic works as Ode To Autumn.
A contemporary of Byron and Shelley, Keats was a leading light in the British Romantic movement of the early 19th century before his death at the age of just 25. For visitors with a creative streak of their own, there is even the chance to turn poet and put pen to paper while crafting an original poem! Normally priced at £5.50 per adult, entry to the museum is free with The London Pass.
A classic taste of Britain at the V&A!
London Pass holders can enjoy one of Britain's more refined contributions to society at the Victoria & Albert Museum, one of the world's leading art and design spaces. After discovering the world-class exhibits at this free-to-enter museum, they can stop for a free Cream Tea Package at the V&A Café.
Britain's tradition of taking tea with sweet scones, cream and jam dates back at least to the middle of the 19th century when tourism boomed in Victorian Britain. At the V&A Café, the package includes a homemade raisin scone, Cornish clotted cream, strawberry jam and a loose leaf tea. Normally priced at £6.65 per person, the V&A cream tea package is included free with The London Pass.
Also new for autumn 2015 is a series of special offers for London Pass holders at attractions and retail outlets: a 15 per cent discount on purchases at The Toy Store in Oxford Street and the Nickelodeon Store in Leicester Square, and 10 per cent off gift shop purchases at the Tower Bridge Exhibition and Twickenham Stadium Tours.
Making significant savings with The London Pass is simple for visitors to the UK's capital city as they simply need to show their card at any of the 60-plus featured attractions to gain admittance with nothing else to pay. A one-day London Pass is priced at £55 per adult and £37 per child (aged 5-15), and on a one-day break visitors to the city can save after visiting just three attractions. For example, paying independently to visit the Tower of London (normally £22), the London Bridge Experience (£24) and taking a Thames River Cruise (£18) would ordinarily come to £64, but London Pass holders can enjoy the same experiences and save £9.
The London Pass saves holders not only money but time too, as the card includes queue-jumping privileges at a number of popular city attractions, meaning less time waiting to gain entry, and more time enjoying their chosen experience.
