Skip the line at London attractions

Fancy jumping the queue? We’ve rounded up a few of the best London attractions where you can beat the rush


Ok, so the one thing we Brits are famous for is queuing. We’re good at it, and usually like to complain about it... However, if you’ve got a lot to pack into a day out in London town – or if the weather isn’t convincing you to stand outside for a few hours – why not skip the queues? 

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite attractions where you can buy skip-the-line tickets, which could save you good few hours of queuing time.

The London Eye

Skip the line to make your London Eye experience a whole lot more enjoyable. With fast-track entry for your standard flight in a shared capsule, you get to skip the majority of the queue. And queues for this very popular London icon often do get very long indeed.

Sea Life London Aquarium

The Sea Life London Aquarium is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of global marine life, which means it’s one of London’s busiest attractions. So if you want to wander past the hordes and head straight in? Pick up tickets to take advantage of a skip-the-line tour.

London Zoo

Charles Darwin was a fellow of the ZSL London Zoo and visited regularly. Here’s your chance to follow in his footsteps by taking in one of the capital’s very finest attractions. We don’t reckon the pioneering evolutionist had to queue, so you shouldn’t have to either.

Madame Tussauds London

The queues at this world-famous attraction often snake their way across half of London (okay, an exaggeration but they do go long), so if any place is worth a skip-the-line ticket, it’s this. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with the stars in no time.
