Default 'Cheap days out' thread

London 2for1 days out.
'There's a sneaky loophole to get 2for1 tickets for a massive range of London attractions (e.g. the Zoo & London Dungeon) through National Rail's Days Out Guide scheme.........

.......You can print as many vouchers as you like and currently offers are valid til 31 May 2008. Check the individual offer pages for full T&Cs.'

Unless anyone has time-traveller abilities should the date be 31 May 2009?!

Default Chessington World of Adventrues - Toddler pass

If you log on to their website you can print off a voucher for you to pay just 12 for you and a child under 4 years of age.

This voucher is craftily 'hidden' under Groups then Parent and Toddler Club. It is for mid week and set dates only but if you have a pre-school age child why go when the rest of the world is there too during the holidays.

Normal price for the two of you would be 53!! Tesco vouchers only enable you to buy adult price tickets so we founf this a great way to save by buying one adult tickets with Tesco and one adult and child using this voucher so the whole day out cost us just 12 - BARGAIN!

Default Hamerton Zoological Park

You can get a saving of a free child entry for two full paying adult tickets. This is a small zoo park in Cambridgeshire near Sawtry, nice and flat, plenty of parking and lots of unusual animals you wouldn't normally see at most zoos. small cafe where you can buy a cuppa and an ice cream but not much else - take a picnic. There is a play area for the kids too. Print your own child free entry form from the website at www.hamertonzoopark.com and have a relaxing day out.

was wondering if anyone knew of any discounts for entrance tickets into Cadburys World.

Want to go with family (4 kids, 3 adults).

btw...I already know Tesco Clubcard holders can get discounts, but I dont have enough points, and the tickets are slightly cheaper on lastminute.com, but not that much.

My local One Stop are selling 2 multipacks (6) of quavers for £1.90. You get 2 vouchers per multipack, so 4 in total.

This'll save you about 10p, if buying 4 normal packs for 50p each (as in my local supermarket).

the 241 zoo tickets on the cereal packets are also valid at drayton manor park. it's a theme park which includes a zoo. Unlike some other zoos where you would pay extra for the rides this is with all-in entry price of around 24 per adult.

so you can use the cereal packet voucher as a bogof to the theme park, even if you're not interested in the zoo.

I thought under 4's went free at the merlin/tussauds attractions now? alton towers is our local and until recently you had to pay for children who reached a metre tall but they have npw changed things so you only pay for them if they are 4 years or over. i thought my 2 year old was going to need an annual pass of his own this season but they changed the rule, so now you don't have to pay for tall 2 year olds

drayton manor does their own version of the toddler ticket too. It's only during the local term dates which are listed on their website. parent and toddler is 14 as opposed to 24 for normal adult price.

Hi Bobadobado!!!! LocalKids do a discount of 10 off per family ticket to Cadburys World, worth lookingat their website. You do have to join and its about 12 for 12months, but you get loads of over discount opportunities as well, like Alton Towers and Diggerland, Pizza places - all sorts of stuff worth a look localkids.co.uk I've saved loads so far, more than got my membership back.......
