2-4-1/ London Pass/Oyster Card???

Jump to last reply

There are 5 of us ages 16+ in London for approx. 5-6 nights. We have traveled with the kids to Paris and Rome in the past and rarely used public transportation because we walked everywhere. But, it seems that London may be more spread out? I was going to get a London Pass and a Travel Card for each of us. However, after spending a great deal of time reading threads and websites I think I have changed my mind.
Please confirm that my plans are the best 'deal'.

Our priority sites are:
Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Pauls, British Museum and Imperial War Museum which are both free, Churchill War Rooms, Windsor Castle, Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge.
Maybe add on Kensington Palace, Thames Riverboat Cruise and some other museums which are free (Tate, National Gallery and therefore irrelevant to this issue)

I am thinking we will get a PAPER Travelcard for each of us from the Kings Cross TRAIN station the day we arrive. I will print vouchers/coupons for the sites we want to see from home before we leave (in case they do not have the coupon booklets when we purchase our travelcards) and use the 2-4-1 deals.

I guess the only other option would be to get the Oyster Card with just a small amount for an occasional trip and the London Pass. But it seems that would only make sense if you think we could walk most everywhere.

Thoughts???
Also, do we need a picture ID for the paper travel card?
