How is COVID-19 impacting my upcoming travel plans with my London Explorer pass?
Attractions in London are starting to open and we're working closely with them to ensure a seamless experience during your visit. We advise you check the individual attraction website for the latest opening news.
In light of the outbreak, Go London has automatically updated passes to be valid for two years from the purchase date. If your travel plans have been disrupted, but you are planning on exploring London within the next two years, we suggest you hold on to your Go London pass and do not activate it until your next trip.
