With 2FOR1 offers you can visit dozens of London attractions at half price.

What’s great about these offers is that you don’t have to purchase a particular tourist pass to enjoy them, they are simply offered to any user who purchases National Rail transport tickets.

All 2FOR1 offers are also valid as long as your National Rail ticket is. This means that if you have a multi-day ticket or a return ticket, you can enjoy the 2FOR1 offers from the first day your ticket is valid until the last.

Our recommendations

If you are landing at Stansted or Gatwick Airport we recommend you get your Express train tickets from the station (not inside the plane or on your phone). Make sure to get a return ticket and keep it with you everywhere you go. This way, you’ll be able to use the 2FOR1 offers for the entire duration of your stay.

In this article, you’ll find all the information you need about what the 2FOR1 offers are, how to use them, the benefits, the limitations, how to get them, and what railway tickets guarantee the offers.

What is the 2FOR1 offer?

The 2FOR1 offers are a discount scheme valid on select London attractions, tours, and activities. The discounts are offered to visitors who have purchased National Rail tickets or passes.

These discounts usually take the form of a voucher that guarantees two entries at the price of one, hence the name. However, you can also find other forms of discounts (10% or 20% off) and three entries at the price of two (3FOR2 offers).

Anyone who presents their National Rail ticket along with a printed Days Out voucher can redeem the advertised discounts at the various attractions. The vouchers can be found on the Days Out website , and they are always free to download and print.

How to use the 2FOR1 offer

To redeem the 2FOR1 offers, the three essential steps are the following.

Once you have done this, you can simply go to the attraction you are interested in and by presenting your National Rail ticket and your voucher, you will get your two entries for the price of one.

The vouchers are always free to download and print, and you can do so with as many as you want. The only limit is that you can download only up to 3 vouchers per attraction (therefore valid for a total of 6 people). There are, however, a few things to keep in mind when using the 2FOR1 offers.

  • 2FOR1 offers guarantee two tickets for the price of one, rather than a 50% discount on every ticket. This means that, unless stated otherwise on the website, 2FOR1 offers are applicable for every two tickets purchased per attraction.
  • While one voucher is valid for two people, both of them need to have a valid National Rail ticket at the time of their visit to the attraction.
  • Most 2FOR1 offers are valid on full-price adult tickets only. If you are purchasing a full-price adult ticket and a concessionary ticket, the cheapest of the two will normally be deducted.
  • Offers are valid up to and including the day of their expiration.

content If you have a single ticket do not go through the automatic gates on your way out of the station. The automatic barrier will not return your ticket, and you will need it to redeem your 2FOR1 offers.Instead, use the manned exit and ask a member of staff to let you out manually and give you your ticket back.

For example, if you are visiting the Tower of London with three of your friends and you want to use the 2FOR1 offer, you will need to log into your Days Out account, and go to the Tower of London 2FOR1 offers page . If you don’t have an account, you can register by filling in your information on the Days Out website . On the page, you will see the details of the offer and any existing exclusions.

After making sure the offer applies on the day of your intended visit, you can add the number of visitors (4, in this case), the date of your visit, and your station of departure. Once you click on the “get voucher” button, the vouchers will be added to your basket. At this point, you can immediately download them or keep adding other vouchers for different attractions and activities.

When you are done, you will have to download and print the vouchers for yourself and your friends. On the day of your visit, simply go to the Tower of London ticket office, present your National Rail tickets and your two vouchers, and you will only pay for two out of the four entry tickets.

Additionally, some of the attractions are now available to book online in advance. In this case, you will simply have to present your pre-booked and discounted tickets along with your National Rail tickets. The printed Days Out voucher is not necessary with pre-booked tickets.
