This sightseeing pass gets you into more than 60 London sights and attractions for free (skipping the line at each), with loads of other discounts, and it comes with a public transportation option

The London Pass is a great investment if you are in town for several days and plan to hit most of the major sights, because while some of London's top sights are free, the ones that are not have chillingly expensive admission prices.

Not only do you get into some major attractions for free, you also get skip-the-line fast track entry—and the lines can get quite long in high season (I've waited up to an hour for the Tower of London in summer).

You can also add on an Oyster Travelcard to cover unlimited travel on London public transit (buses, Tube, etc.).
