If you want to make your August bank holiday a little cheaper, and have some fun, there are plenty of days-out and meal deals to take advantage of.

This weekend offers include restaurants offering half price food, 2for1 at theme parks and a major high-street chain offering 10% off via its loyalty scheme.

Our top-five weekend picks are below (see the Days Out Deals and Restaurant Deals pages for full info and more offers).

Top August Bank Holiday deals

  • Dine at La Tasca and save 50% on your table's order.

  • Get 2for1 entry to Alton Towers theme park.

  • High street chemist Boots is offering 10 points for every £1 you spend in store on its Boots Advantage loyalty card until Monday if you spend over £15. You normally only get four points per £1. One point is worth 1p to spend in store. As a £20 spend means you'll get £2 back, it's the equivalent of 10% off.

  • Eat at Tootsies & Dexters and get the cheapest meal for free when you buy any two mains.

  • Adults get free entry to Vue cinemas when they accompany a child paying £1.70 to see selected children's movies.
