Does anyone know details of how to get Reduced Price Tickets on London Underground for Visitors/Senior Citizens

Visitors travel cards cost about the same as the regular travel cards that are sold at every tube station. IIRC, senior-citizen discounts, known as concessions, are available only to UK citizens.

Just curious. How do they enforce the UK citizen thing? As a UK senior citizen do I have to show my passport to get a discount?

Yes, pretty much. Not literally your passport, but the local council's equivalent of a seniors ID.

You'll find information regarding types of tickets, zones and costs at the following website.

Residents who are disabled or who are old age pensioners will get free London travel, on rail, bus, Tube, tram etc. It is organised by the local authority where you live. Non residents will not qualify for senior citizen dicounts.

This is pretty much the case elsewhere in UK where 'concessionary' fares are concerned on local transport. Usually only those living in the area are eligible, who issue required passes, as they have to subsidise the cost of reduced fares to transport operators. Only on 'national' service like rail and coach (long-distance bus), anyone over certain age (60 for rail, 50 for coach) can buy a senior citizen's card (around £20 a year) and get discount on most fares.
