London Pass

Is it worthwhile to purchase a London Pass with transportation to sightsee? We arrive in London on Thursday but after going through customs and such and getting to our hotel the day is pretty much shot. So we have 2 full days to sightsee before leaving for our cruise. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No. Most museums are free.

The Tower offers two admissions for the price of one if you have a voucher from www.daysoutguide.co.uk and a single-day Travelcard from a rail station (Victoria, London Bridge, Waterloo, etc.).

Next question.

The general opinion here seems to be that it isn't worth the money. Many of the major museums and galleries are free anyway, and you would most likely only be using public transport within zones 1 and 2.

There are many threads about the different ticket options for public transport, but if any of the attractions at www.daysoutguide.co.uk appeal, you could get a better deal by getting one-day travelcards from a National Rail station for each day (remember to print out the vouchers for anything and everything you might be interested in).

If not, then just get the ordinary Oystercards from any tube station (or plenty of corner shops) and put £15 of pay-as-you-go money on each.

Don't try to pay in cash per ride. They won't accept cash on buses and set a deliberately prohibitive fare for doing it on the tube.

IMO the British Rail Travel card / 2for1 combo is the best way to go, half price off at several of the site where you need to pay. Most museums are free as the others said.
