✔️ Check out the events run by your local shopping centre – these are often free or low cost and usually run during school holidays.

✔️ Enjoy local Summer of Fun days and free low cost library events.

✔️ Don’t forget to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge over the school holidays.

✔️ Look out for discounts codes with local influencers and food packet offers to help you save money on days out.

✔️ Use supermarket loyalty points towards days out.

✔️ Pre-book your attraction tickets in advance and online (including parking) – this can often save you a small amount of money.

✔️ There are over 200 attractions around the UK that Blue Peter Badge holders can get into for free! You can find the list here.

✔️ Make sure to take reusable water bottles out with you and refill as you go to save you spending money on refreshments.

✔️ Do your car park research in advance – a car park a short walk away may work out cheaper than parking on site at some places.

✔️ Make the most of your membership cards – these can save you money in the long term.

✔️ Make the most of kids eat free deals at specified food outlets during the school holidays.

✔️ Check if your entry ticket lasts for longer – sometimes paying for one entry entitles you to more throughout the year (for example purchasing a standard entry ticket for Windsor Castle and the Roald Dahl Museum allows you to visit again throughout the year for free).
