Visit Egland is co-ordinating offers during English Tourism Week

This week is English Tourism Week. It actually started on Saturday and runs until the end of next weekend. But what does it mean for us visitors and for tourists?

As I wrote about a fortnight ago, many of these events are geared to the travel trade with meetings, seminars and conferences as people talk to each other as well as to local and national governments. Sometimes there is mention on mainstream media but us holidaymakers and visitors are forgotten.

Not so in the case of English Tourism Week.

There are a  number of offers and discounts for us to take advantage of during the week. You can find many more on the English Tourism website but here is just a random selection from up and down England.

In Oxfordshire, at the Raymond Blanc Cookery School in Oxford, you get a 20% discount this weekend you ca claim an extra 10% off when you buy items at the Bicester Village. Oxfordshire residents also get 20% off the entry price this week at Fairytale Farm

In the London area, you get a 25% discount off the entry to the World Rugby Museum in Twickenham, A tour of Arsenal’s stadium in North London will cost you £5 less than usual if you go this week.

In Lincolnshire, visit the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway at Ludborough on the 25th and get free tea and biscuits. On the weekend there will be free entry to many of Lincoln’s city and countryside’s attractions, Highlights include free rides on Lincoln’s open-top tour bus and free entry to Lincoln Cathedral.

At the British Motor Museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire, pay for one day’s entry and get free entry for the rest of the twelve months. (You get the same offer a the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley) Or go on a free walking tour of Rugby. Or do both!

In Norwich, you can get a free tour on the City Sightseeing Open Top Tour Bus but you need to reserve a ticket contacting Norwich Tourist Information Centre. You can’t just hop a bus at a convenient bus stop and claim a free tour.

In Portsmouth, the Eastney Beam Engine House is welcoming visitors for a special Open Day.

At Helston in Cornwall, get 2 for 1 on full price tickets to Pirate’s Quest when booked online using discount code that you get from the website.
