Money Tips: Family Days Out & Days Out With Kids

Whatever the weather, there’s nothing more uplifting than spending the day with the family. There’s a whole host of deals, discounts and vouchers out there to help you enjoy your together-time to the fullest. We’ve put together some top tips for entertaining your loved ones on a budget.

Watch a TV Show Screening

Sign up online and you can see screenings of TV programmes for free. You won’t always get the one you’re after first time round, but persistence pays off. If you get a ticket, remember that they often overbook, so turn up early to guarantee yourself a seat.

Save on Attractions with National Rail

You can get your hands on 2 for 1 tickets to some of the UK’s best attractions when you book a train ticket through National Rail. In most of the big cities there is loads to see and do, and a lot of it is completely free.

Go to a Museum

Spend the day in one of the country’s many excellent cultural attractions. The big UK cities have a fantastic range of museums and galleries, to expand your mind. If you stick to permanent exhibitions, you can often get in for free. This is a great way to have fun with the kids and watch them learn at the same time.

Take a Nature Walk

Look up your local beauty spot and take the kids for a scenic stroll. Windy days are perfect for kite-flying, and when it’s sunny you can take a picnic. You’ll pay nothing for the privilege!

Convert Your Tesco Clubcard Points into Days Out

Pick up a copy of Tesco’s Deals Brochure and spend your Clubcard points on a day of family fun. You can get up to 75% off on a great range of attractions including Alton Towers and Legoland.
