Free & cheap things to do

  • New and existing Vodafone mobile customers can get two Vue cinema tickets for £7 (norm £10ish) via a promo code on Vodafone's 'VeryMe' rewards app. You can claim once per week, every week and the offer will be refreshed on the app every Monday. The offer is currently ongoing but if anything changes, we will update you here.

    The code is valid for 30 days once claimed and can be used on standard adult 2D tickets at any time on any day – if you'd like to upgrade to premium seats you'll just need to pay the difference (see 'More info' for exclusions). The deal is available to any pay monthly or small business customer, plus pay-as-you-go customers who have topped up £10 or more in the last 60 days.

    How to get the Vue offer

    • Download the free My Vodafone App (Android/IOS)
    • Click the 'VeryMe' button to access a list of available offers and select the Vue deal.
    • Click the 'Get deal' button to purchase two admission e-codes for £7
    • You'll then receive an email with the e-codes which you'll need to use for general admission tickets either online or at the Box Office.

    If you can't get out and about yet, you might like our Free virtual globe-trotting, tours and experiences.

    • Valid at any open Vue location in the UK, except for Vue West End (Leicester Square).

      Can be used to book 3D screening, IMAX, VIP, Recliner, Xtreme seating or Gold class screenings online and at the Box Office upon payment of the difference.

      Not valid for Premiers and alternative/special showings including Event Cinema screenings, Mini Mornings, Senior Friendly, Autism Friendly and Scene screenings.

  • If you register with Days Out Guide and buy a National Rail ticket, you can get 2for1 entry to 80+ UK attractions, including Thorpe Park, Kew Gardens, Chessington World of Adventures, Alton Towers and Legoland Windsor (see the full attractions list). You must pre-book the attraction tickets – on-the-gate purchases are no longer eligible.

    Important: Before booking, make sure to check ahead on the venue's website for Covid measures and changes to opening times.

    You'll need to click on your chosen attraction on the Days Out Guide website and register or login. A 2for1 code will generate onscreen. Copy it, and click through to the attraction's own website and use the code right away to book two tickets online. On arrival at the attraction, you'll need to present these alongside a valid train ticket dated for the same day.

    If you don't present a valid train ticket at the attraction on the day, you'll be required to purchase your second ticket on the gate.

    Before the pandemic, there were 300+ attractions available under the 2for1 scheme. We don't know if the rest will be added at a later date but we have a hunch they might, once more attractions are fully open and allowing pre-booking. Check back at a later date for any updates to the attractions list.

    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 (Legoland Windsor is the most expensive at up to £53).

    Just stop by the nearest station on your way and pick one up, then present it alongside your pre-booked tickets at the gate. 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. 

    For savings on travel, see how you can swap Tesco points for discounted Railcards.

    • Excludes Oyster cards, Freedom Passes, DLR, bus, Eurostar, Heathrow Express and tickets and travelcards bought from London Underground. Can't be used with other offers or promotions.

      You must be 16 or over to take advantage.

      If you don't present a valid train ticket at the attraction on the day, you'll be required to purchase your second ticket on the gate.

  • Convert Tesco Clubcard points into Tesco Reward Partners vouchers* and on many attractions you get three times the vouchers' face value to use on tickets, eg, £5 in points converts into £15 worth of vouchers. Can be used at theme parks, wildlife parks and more.

    Important: Not all attractions may be open yet, following their closure during lockdown. Before exchanging your points for vouchers, check to see if your chosen attraction is open and if they're operating any differently since the start of the pandemic.

    Here are some of the theme parks you can select:

    Alton Towers
    Blackpool Pleasure Beach
    Chessington
    Legoland
    Thorpe Park
    Edinburgh Dungeons


    And some of the wildlife parks:

    Eden Project
    Blackpool Zoo
    Longleat Safari
    National Sea Life, Birmingham
    Sea Life, Blackpool

  • Live entertainment is on hiatus while the UK is in lockdown, yet the show must go on, and what's emerged in its place is pioneering, exciting and a dang sight cheaper. Our cheap theatre tickets guide covers where to see the filmed version of Hamilton, live-streamed shows from London's Southbank Centre, free pre-recorded Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals, immersive app-based audio shows, free audio play podcasts and heaps more.

    If you're celebrating Valentine's Day, a night of theatre with your fave on your own sofa could be just the ticket. It's a lot like the real thing, minus the overpriced wine, the crisp packet rustlers and the back-of-a-head blocking your view.

Cheap prosecco and champagne

These are some of the cheapest prices we see throughout the year for prosecco and champagne. While the very cheapest time is usually during the festive period, many of the prices of the bottles below are the same as they were then, so this can be a corking time to buy.

Gifts

We don't currently have any deals.

WARNING! Things can go wrong with the delivery of flowers, and in the past we’ve featured deals from several floristry firms only to be swamped with sad messages after flowers didn’t arrive or, worse, arrived dying or dead. Hopefully that won’t happen to you, but there’s always a risk, so weigh that up before buying.
