Frequently asked Questions Explained:
- What kinds of train
tickets are valid for this promotion?
For a visual representation of all the most
common ticket types, please click the button below:
Alternatively, to avoid any confusion, the
best indication of a valid ticket is the inclusion of the National
Rail symbol (double arrow).
Travelcard - If you buy your Travelcard
from a National Rail station - such as London Victoria, St Pancras
and Paddington - they will issue you with a paper ticket, which you
can show and use at the attractions with the 2FOR1 offers, this
will also allow you to travel between attractions, using the
Underground. We're afraid Oyster Travelcards and tickets bought
from a London Underground station are not accepted. Travelcards
must look like the image below (printed on orange and cream card)
to be used to obtain 2FOR1 offers.
- What days will my
train tickets be valid to claim the offers?
Single tickets - These are valid only on the day
of validity. A days Travelcard must be purchased from a train
station and feature the National Rail Logo.
Return Train Tickets - You will be able to use
your return train tickets with the vouchers at any time between the
outward and return journey - if you came on Thursday and returned
on Sunday, you could use the vouchers on Thursday, Friday, Saturday
& Sunday. In order to do this please ensure that you retain the
outward portion of your ticket as you will need to show both
tickets at the attraction - just ask the staff at the ticket
barrier to let you through which they will be happy to do.
- Can I use an Oyster
No, the 2FOR1 London attractions partners DO NOT recognise Oyster
Cards as being valid accompanying rail tickets, unless it is an
Oyster Annual Season ticket with its accompanying Gold Card record

promotions when you travel by train.

tickets valid in conjunction with 2FOR1?
Yes, you may travel using Groupsave tickets and still use 2FOR1
vouchers for entry to any of our listed attractions.
- Can I use London
Underground/tube tickets, DLR and/or London Bus only
No, however if your travel ticket has an element of National
Rail/train company travel included, e.g. any type of 'paper'
Travelcard, train/tube inclusive ticket and is issued by a National
Rail operated ticket office, then the answer is yes. If you need
help distinguishing, please check it using our ticket types

ticket issued by Chiltern Railways?

use the vouchers - often this works out cheaper than buying an
adult and child's ticket.
