If you are making a one way journey or your ticket is valid for one day, you can use your National Rail tickets to qualify for the 2FOR1 offer only on the day of travel.
If you are making a return journey, you can use your National Rail tickets to qualify for the 2FOR1 offer on any day on or between your outward and return journeys. For example, if you arrived on Thursday and will return on Sunday, your tickets will be considered valid for 2FOR1 offers on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Can I use an Oyster card?
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 card.
Can I use London Underground/tube tickets, DLR and/or London Bus only tickets?
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 page.
