Half term is on the horizon and in only 8 weeks we will once again find ourselves at the start of the summer hols too! I personally cannot wait – I love days together to do all of our favourites things, discover new places, have adventures and generally just chill a bit together. Half term and the summer holidays can however be a pricey time of year; especially if like us you have a small tribe of kiddos! Whilst we are content to do a lot of free stuff and low cost things (walks, beach days, parks, swimming, museums etc) we also like to have at least one big fun day out in half term, and weekly or so in the summer holidays too – be it a farm, theme park, trampolining or other activity – all of which quickly become costly with 5 of us to pay for. We tend to plan it using this schedule to ensure balance in both cost and variety in activities.
Legoland for £14.50 each
The kids have been desperate to go to Legoland for AGES (and I mean ages!) but even on the 2 for 1 vouchers I’ve struggled to get it lower than £90 plus and mostly it has come out about £100 or more. Think then of my joy when on my emails yesterday I was able to book 5 tickets for the bargainous price of 72 quid total (boom! that is how I like to roll)…and what’s great is that we have until November to use them.
So of course, how is this possible?
Legoland tickets are usually about £50, and they’re currently online (pre-booked) at a discount for about £29 – £39 depending on the day you choose. Planet (radio) offers however is full of deals (we bought a family ticket to Eden camp for this half term too a few weeks ago for 22 quid which is half price) and have seen other fab family days out on there too. And, you will be delighted to know that they currently have single tickets for Legoland in Windsor at the delightful price of £14.50 and, what’s even better is that if you sign up to their emails, you’ll also get a further 10% off your first order – WHOOP – Savings aplenty!
And so, I obviously bought 5 tickets at that price for us and it came out at £72 for us all to be able to go to Legoland, either this half term or in the summer! We are going to either get an air bnb and stay overnight this half term or, as we are holidaying in the Cotswold’s this summer, we may just incorporate it as a day out during our holiday or on the way home to save money on accommodation (we aren’t sure yet). Either way we are all super excited to be finally going to Legoland – especially as it is only costing a little over the price of one ticket usually!
Hurry and grab this deal (they also have it for Madame Tussaud too if that takes your fancy) and have an amazing family day out for a bargainous price – now doesn’t that make the school holidays a little more joyful?!
