2 for 1 tickets to attractions

I have noticed people mentioning good 2 for 1 offers in London. I have seen them offered with rail tickets but that will not work for me. Nor is the London Pass cost effective for us. Is there some other source of 2 for 1 tickets to London attactions that I am not aware of? Thank you!!

In addition to regular train tickets, the 2for1 offers provided by National Rail apply to paper travelcards with the National Rail logo on them which you buy at National Rail stations, not Tube stations. You can buy one-, three-, and seven-day travelcards for the zones of your choice in London. They are good on the Tube, bus, Docklands Light Railway, and National Rail trains withing the zones covered.

Can I ask why the rail ticket 2 for 1's won't work? If you are taking public transport at all (Tube/buses/trains) you can use tickets purchased in any London train station.

Even if you are only using the tube, you can still buy your ticket in a London train station - and thus qualify for the 2 for 1's.

But - tfl (Transport for London) does offer a more limited discount/2for1 scheme connected to Oyster cards. Check out the tfl website.

Go to www.daysoutguide.co.uk to see all the 2for1 offers provided through National Rail and to download and print vouchers for the ones that interest you.

Thank you for the replies - I was mistaken and didn't realize I could buy tickets for tube, etc at the rail station and qualify. Thank you!!

Janie, we liked having the 7-day paper railpass for using around town. Also, some plays (like 39 Steps I mentioned on your other question) have 2 for 1 deal for the best seats that works out to ~ the cost of discounted cheaper but still good seats.

We'd have used the 2 for 1 for Fat Tyre bike tour if the weather and our schedule had cooperated.
