Travel long haul: Something To Declare
News from the travel world
Saturday 21 November 1998
With so many museums in and around London now charging entrance fees, the cost of a trip to the capital for families wanting to visit a number of sights can be prohibitive. The answer used to be a deal called the London White Card, but, following a facelift, it is now called GoSee London's Museums & Galleries.
The prices for unlimited access range from pounds 16 for three days for a single adult to pounds 50 for a family for a week ("family" means two adults and up to four children aged 16 and under).
The 16 participating venues are: Aspley House (Wellington Museum); Barbican Art Gallery; BBC Experience; Design Museum; Hayward Gallery; Imperial War Museum; London Transport Museum; Museum of London; Museum of the Moving Image; National Maritime Museum (Old Royal Observatory, Queens House); Natural History Museum; Royal Academy; Tower Bridge Experience, and the V&A.
Cards are available at these venues, London Transport information centres and tourist information centres.
