Family Days Out on a Budget

The School holidays are over but there are still times we want to take our children out for the day. I know I have some catching up to do with not being able to go out much over the summer because of waiting for Star’s operation. It’s tough though when you are on a budget but looking for online discount vouchers or special offers on activities and excursions will help to keep the cost down.

Getting online for savings

There are many places to visit in Britain and many of these attractions offer discounted tickets for families or provide ‘two for the price of one’ ticket offers. One hugely popular attraction is Ripley’s Believe It or Not, in London, and is filled with mirror mazes, interactive exhibits and laser rooms. Families can spend hours of fun at Ripleys and there are special offers available including ‘two for one’ admission as well as online discount vouchers.

How to Find Online Vouchers

If your kids are begging to visit a particular attraction then check online to see if discount vouchers are available. Companies run these offers throughout the year and you can just use a search engine to enter the name of the attraction followed by the words ‘discount vouchers’. This will bring up sites where you can apply for a code that can then be entered when buying your tickets.  I do this all the time and rarely pay full price for a family day out. Sometimes there are expiry codes that need to be considered so it’s a good idea to set up an alert on discount sites to be notified when new codes are available. You can also find discounts in certain forums, again it’s easy to just do a search for the place you wish to visit.

Low Cost Days Out

Britain has a wealth of rural locations and excellent country parks, most of which are completely free to use. These are great for a day out in the fresh air and make for a fun afternoon having picnics in the sunshine. Many of these locations also offer facilities such as boating on the lakes and children’s play areas as well as mountain bike hire and fishing facilities. You may even find a zoo nearby or in the winter months, ice skating facilities. We have a great ice rink in our city center on the run up to Christmas. 

So go and check it out, it doesn’t have to be expensive to enjoy a day out with the family.
