[Unfortunately the National Lottery Days Out promotion has now ended. I’m glad lots of you were able to nab some tickets!]

There are so many fun filled days out to enjoy in London, it sometimes feels like we are spoilt for choice! However, these attractions tend to have a hefty price tag attached, and particularly for families they can quickly become unaffordable. Well, with this deal you can enjoy a fantastic day out for as little as £2 per person…

If you’re looking for cheap London attraction tickets, for a limited time via the National Lottery Days out promotion Lotto players can claim a £25 voucher which can be used across participating popular London and UK attractions.

Which attractions are included in the promotion?

There are hundreds of attractions included in the promotion, with something suitable for all age groups! Some of the most popular include Shrek’s adventure, Legoland, the London Eye and more. Click here to see the full list.

How do I get my cheap ticket to visit a London attraction?

Want to secure yours? Here’s a step by step guide to claiming your attraction tickets:

  1. Head to the Lotto website and play for £2. (I was required to deposit a minimum of £5 on the Lotto website in order to buy my £2 ticket, but was able to withdraw the additional £3 after, so remember to do this!)
  2. Once I had purchased my Lotto ticket, I was issued with a 19 digit code. Copy the code, and head over to National Lottery Days Out here
  3. Submit your 19 digit code and email address, and receive your £25 voucher code
  4. Now you can browse the participating attractions, and when you are ready to purchase, select your chosen attraction
  5. Enter your code at checkout which should automatically reduce the price by £25.

Which attractions are best value for money via the promotion?

The participating Visit Britain attractions range in price, from £3.99 self guided tours, to a Madame Tussaud’s ticket for £30.50, all the way up to private tours costing hundreds of pounds. To make the most of the promotion, when I was choosing I filtered to view attractions closest to the value of £25.

For example, tickets to Shrek’s adventure cost £24 each, so by selecting this attraction you are getting maximum value for your voucher. If you select an attraction costing more than £25, you will need to pay the difference, so keep this in mind!

I personally chose a London Eye ticket as it was just below the £25 threshold at the time of booking, and therefore it was free. Some examples of other great value options are Chelsea Football stadium tour (£25 per ticket), SEA LIFE London Aquarium (£27.00) or Kew Gardens (£19.50).

Important: All bookings made using a Lotto code must be made before 31st March 2022, so you will need to book within the next month! It’s not good value if you forget to use your voucher!

I played the Lotto for £2, was able to redeem my £25 voucher for a free ticket to use on the London Eye, and then unexpectedly won £30 on the Lotto! So I ended up in profit, and I had a great day ticking off a bucket list attraction. Double win!

I hope you are able to make the most of this deal, let me know which attraction you choose! If you love a freebie, head over to this post to get a free drink (or four) in bars across London.
