‘2 for 1’ entry at many West Oxfordshire attractions

The popular West Oxfordshire Week (WOW) is back this September with many local attractions throwing open their doors to give free or discounted entry to the District’s residents.

From Monday 23 September visitors can enjoy ‘2 for 1’entry to lots of attractions in West Oxfordshire and the surrounding area. New this year to WOW is Batsford Arboretum and Gardens, Birdland Park and Gardens, Fairytale Farm and Kelmscott Manor House and Gardens.

Fairytale Farm near Chipping Norton opened earlier this year and is more than just animals. It provides an ‘accessible to all’ adventure play and sensory experience for all the family.

Kelmscott Manor House and Gardens is a Grade 1 listed farmhouse and chosen summer home of William Morris. It contains an outstanding collection of the possessions and works of Morris, his family and associates.

For something a little more active, leisure centres across the district are similarly offering ‘2 for 1’ admission to their casual swim, gym and racquet sports activities and classes.

The promotion also extends to Chipping Norton Museum up until the 28 September and at Cogges Manor Farm, Combe Mill, Crocodiles of the World, Oxford Bus Museum, Blenheim Palace, and Rousham House Gardens on various days throughout the week.

Cotswold Wildlife Park is offering one child free entry with a full paying adult all week from Monday 23rd.

Tea and cakes at Cotswold Woollen Weavers are also ‘2 for 1’ all week.

Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member for Economy and Local Communities at the District Council, said: “WOW is the perfect opportunity for residents to visit the top quality attractions that draw so many visitors to our district each year. Tourism is a major industry in West Oxfordshire and I hope that many people will take advantage of these offers and visit some of the wonderful places that are here on our doorstep.”

To enjoy the discounts local residents need to collect a voucher sheet from Visitor Information Centres in Burford or Witney. It is necessary to book for some of the attractions in advance.
