Day-trippers invited to explore national heritage sites

History lovers can visit the country’s top heritage sites at discounted prices as part of a drive to encourage domestic holidays.

Visitor Information Centres in West Oxfordshire are stocking ‘The Hudson’s Explorer Pass’, which offers the chance to choose from around 200 iconic heritage sites to visit in the UK. Prices start from £29 for a two-day pass.

Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “Money-saving offers such as this will appeal to a lot of people, especially day trippers and the growing number of people choosing to holiday at home rather than overseas.

“Heritage attractions are very popular and there are many great places to visit in the UK including Blenheim Palace and Cogges here in West Oxfordshire as well as national venues such as the Eden Project and the Roman Baths.”

Each pass comes complete with a free souvenir colour illustrated guidebook and map. Pass holders can gain entry without paying more on-the-door and they will have the opportunity to get priority entrance, where possible. In addition to these benefits, they will also have access to any associated promotions and events.
