National Rail logo2for1 attractions with National RailBuy train ticket & print vch to save up to £50

Save up to £50

If you register and print a voucher from Days Out Guide then buy a National Rail ticket from a train station you can get 2for1 entry to over 150 top UK attractions, including SeaLife Centres, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Alton Towers and Legoland Windsor when you present both at the attraction. See the full theme park list or the zoo and wildlife list

You need to print a voucher for the relevant attraction (follow the link above and search for it) AND have a valid rail ticket bought from National Rail on the same day for a single or day return ticket, or within the days of travel for a return ticket. 

What if I live near the attraction/am travelling by other means?

It's worth doing this even if you are not travelling by train as a cheap single ticket can be available for a couple of quid, far cheaper than the entry ticket price (Alton Towers is the most expensive at £51.60 on the gate). 

Just stop by the nearest station on your way and pick one up, then present both to get your 2for1. Crucially, your rail ticket must show that you have travelled to one of the stations nearest the attraction. So for Thorpe Park, you need to have a ticket with an end destination of Staines or Chertsey. 

The offer's ongoing, but check the voucher for each individual attraction's restrictions, as these vary. See the full T&Cs including which tickets are valid.

MSE Rhiannon says:

Electronic ticket barriers can sometimes retain your ticket (especially if it's a single), so to make sure you don't lose your proof of travel, ask a member of the station staff at a manned gate to help you through.

Excludes family, advance and web tickets as well as Oyster cards, and tickets and travelcards bought from London Underground. Can't be used with other offers or promotions. Excludes Thorpe Park from Mon 26 Oct 2015 until Sun 1 Nov 2015.

Kew Gardens logoFREE packet of wild flower seedsCovers up to 2m². Varieties incl oxeye daisy & corn marigold


You can get a free packet of wild seeds delivered if you register your details via this Kew Gardens Grow Wild link. There are 50,000 in total available, but this offer was very popular when it ran last year, and autumn is a great time to get sowing - so go quick if you want it.

Grow Wild says that each packet - one per household - should contain enough seeds to cover an area of up to 2m² when fully grown.

The packets will contain a mixture of wild flower seeds, which will be native to whichever part of the country you live in (see the full list). Varieties include oxeye daisy, corn marigold, red campion, cornflower and meadow buttercup. Packets should be delivered during October 2016.

These seed packets aren't normally available for purchase, but we found a similar packet of wild flower seeds for £1.99 at Van Meuwen. 

MSE Rhiannon says:

These wild flower seeds are perfect for a bed or border if you're starting from zero or replanting and enjoy a traditional country garden look. If you've more than one border, it's worth noting these flowers like to self-seed and might take over without a little care and attention - but that's part of their charm, both for yourself and for wildlife.

It's limited to UK residents aged 16 or older. Grow Wild asks that you don't plant the seeds in or near conservation areas. 

Gardeners' World logo'Free' Year's pass gets 2for1s to 385 UK gardensIncl Kew, Eden. In £4.50 mag, 2for1 or up to 50% off tix


It's back again this year... Buy May's BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine (£4.50, out until Mon 30 May) and you’ll get a card for 2for1 adult entry to 385 UK gardens, valid until 14 Apr 2017. 

Once you've got the card, sign it, and turn up at any of the gardens listed. You can use it as many times as you like, but even if you visited just one garden costing more than £4.50 - which most gardens we found were - it's worth buying the magazine.

One of the biggest savings is a 2for1 at Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (Stratford-upon-Avon), which normally costs up to £26.25 for a full-price adult ticket on the day. Some of the other gardens in the offer include:

It's 2for1 on two adult tickets. BBC Gardeners' World says it's down to the individual garden if it’ll accept a child as the second ticketholder - call ahead if this is the case. 

Going on your own? Get up to 50% off

154 of these gardens also give up to 50% off adult individual tickets with the same card - see the magazine guide or Gardener’s World website for details.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
