When doing your next weekly shop, look out for promotional packs of Branston baked beans, including single cans for 65p and four packs for £2, to get a code for a free adult or child ticket when you buy one full-price adult ticket to Thorpe Park or The Dungeons (Blackpool, Edinburgh, London, York).
You need to purchase your ticket online (at the more expensive on-the-gate price) using the code, which can be found on the inside of your Branston beans product label or shrink wrap, or by presenting the promotional product wrapper at the gate when you visit your chosen attraction.
How much you’ll save
A full-price adult Thorpe Park ticket costs £51.50 on the gate, but only £27.99 if booked online five or more days in advance. While this 2for1’s only valid on the pricier tickets (even if buying online), it’ll still save you £3.50ish factoring in the cost of beans compared with buying two cheaper tickets without a 2for1.
(There’s also the added benefit of not having to commit to your plans five or more days ahead – allowing you to wait and see what the weather’s like, and simply rock up at the gate with your voucher).
An adult ticket to the London Dungeon costs £28.95 on the gate, or £19.95 bought online. Including the cost of beans, as you have to pay the on-the-gate price with this deal, you’ll be saving £10ish compared to buying two advance tickets online.
These promotional packs are available nationally at all major supermarkets until September. The code is valid until Wednesday 2nd November at Thorpe Park and Sat 31st December at The Dungeons (some dates are excluded).CLICK HERE TO BOOK
Need family friendly accommodation?
If you’re also looking for a hotel, right now we like trivago for the best deals. It’s the biggest hotel search site in the world and has good coverage of the UK (as well as hotels abroad). For a family friendly budget stay, don’t forget to check Premier Inn and Travelodge. As a general rule with hotels, book early for the cheapest price. If you’ve left it late, try LateRooms.
Need to buy train tickets?
Our top choice for UK train tickets is Virgin Trains – they search the whole rail network, not just Virgin routes. What’s more, they don’t add booking fees or charge you for using your credit card. Also worth a look is Trainline. They buy up seat allocations in bulk, meaning they can sometimes pass on better discounts than rivals.
Need to buy coach or bus tickets?
If you’re travelling by bus, these days National Express really makes an effort to be family friendly. With booster seats, wifi, air con and power sockets for tablets – as well as bargain prices when compared to train – they’re worth a look. With their £8 Family Coachcard kids go free.
