Legoland are part of the 2 for 1 offers that are in the Walkers Crisps packets - and they are also doing an offer where you can visit again for free with a full price ticket during Sept and October..
So.... if you buy 2 adult tickets @ legoland - one will show as full price , the other as free. Keep the full price ticket - and you can use it again in September or October!

Smile Half price Sealife centre tickets

If you collect a few packets of Walkers crisps and register with walkers you can get half price tickets to several destinations including the Sealife centres. 5 points for an adult and 3 for a child. Handy if you have an odd number of people so 2 for 1 doesn't work so well. Also handy if you have a mixture of adult and adult concession tickets as half price for individual tickets not just cheapest free. One multipack of crisps has paid for our half price family tickets.

Thumbs up Alton Towers Tickets - Online Download Vouchers

Alton Towers discount vouchers are available for download which give you Adult entry for 17.00 and Children for 12.00 anytime so no advanced booking needed - I just took the voucher to the gate!

Available online at the Raring2go! website.

You need to register but once you've done that you can access other vouchers for Chessington World of Adventures and Legoland, and they are all updated regularly so I keep checking back for other offers.

Thumbs up 20 savng for Families on 2 great days out in the Cotswolds

Sudeley Castle in the Cotswolds and nearby Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway are offering a joint family ticket for the August Bank Holiday (29th - 31st August.

The Family Ticket is 35 and applies for 2 adults and 3 children, so there's an overall saving of 20 per family on the usual prices for that combination of people across the two attractions.

Sudeley Castle has gorgeous gardens, a fab kids play area with a giant wooden fort, slide and zip wire and is the one where Liz Hurley got married.

The steam railway runs between Cheltenham and Toddington, stopping off at Winchcombe which is the town where the Castle is situated. All in all an hour and a half round trip with lovely countrywide to see from the train and the nostalgic sights, sounds and smells of the steam train!

The best bit about the joint ticket (apart from saving 20!) is that you don't have to visit the 2 attractions on the same day, you can spend a day at each. So that works out at 17.50 for each day out and 3.50 per person per day out - bargain!

You can buy the tickets in advance from Sudeley. See the Sudeley Castle website and click on the link for 'Steam Along to Sudeley'

For anyone who's interested if you have an Iceland Bonus Card on using it you will get a Family Days Out booklet which has Free/2for1 deals. There is also a 2for1 deal for Diggerland valid at any Diggerland park until 6th Sep 09. This was in response to they being no offers to Diggerland.

That offer expired a month ago (30th June) as clearly written in the t&c on the voucher.

Pointless post to go with the pointless rules you were so eager to point out?


There is a voucher in Woman magazine this week however (thats good until end of August) for same offer (mag costs about a pound i think)

Why don't Drayton Manor ever do 2 for 1. Grrrrrrr. I want to take my son to Thomas land, but 50 for two adults is too steep, although my child will get free entry.

Hi there - it's not so much for the major attractions, but if anyone is coming to North Devon on holiday, I'd recommend buying a copy of the North Devon Journal. There is usually at least a page of vouchers for local attractions in it every week. (This is probably true for Cornwall too - try the Cornish Guardian or the West Briton)

Default Thorpe Park Tickets & Alton Towers

Thorpe Park tickets and Alton Towers tickets are almost always for sale on eBay. Tickets that allow entry only on one specific day can be had for around 10 - 15 each, but it varies a lot depending upon the day. Open tickets that allow entry on any day are usually around 20.

My sis' got me two tickets from her Tesco Clubcard points that she has for us in Thorpe park. The thing is, however, we may not be able to go. Does anyone know how long these vouchers are valid for, or if they will extend them for us ? I have just had an op., and may not be well enough to sit on rides.

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to refund them. Normally they are valid for 6mnths. I had ordered 2 vouchers for Pleasure beach but was unable to go. Due to the fact we live in scotland and I knew we would not be able to travel in the near future I returned them back to tesco asking if they could refund the points used. I was quite suprised and grateful that they did.
