    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?!

    Chessington World of Adventrues - Toddler pass

    • 9th Jul 08, 2:18 PM
    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!

    Hamerton Zoological Park

    • 9th Jul 08, 3:32 PM
    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 !!!163;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).
  • Carmina Piranha
    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.

    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.
