Previously, we've shared the best discounts for over 60s when it comes to shopping and restaurants. In today's article, we will be looking at the best over 60s discounts in the world of entertainment and leisure. Let's dive in!
Cinema Discounts for Over 60s
Did you know that you can get discounted cinema tickets if you're an elderly customer? Both Odeon and Vue cinemas across the nation offer concession tickets, some as little as £3.
Vue offers discounted tickets for over 60s at all its cinemas. You'll need to show proof of age such as a driving license upon arrival. They even hold regular special senior screenings at select venues. You’ll get a cuppa and a biscuit included with your ticket.
Booking your tickets is simple, just head to the Vue Cinema website and find your local cinema and see what's on. Select your screening time and add the tickets to your basket. You can also book in the cinema where there are ticket offices and digital order screens.
As well as discounted cinema tickets, older people can get cheap theatre tickets too! Many theatres across the country offer concession tickets for over 60s which are much cheaper than a regular adult ticket. This is perfect if you love going to see shows but can't afford to pay over the odds.
Better yet, you can also get discounted London theatre breaks which include an overnight stay in London as well as a West End show. These can be found online at the likes of Superbreaks.
Museums and Galleries
The UK is home to an enormous range of museums, galleries, and other attractions, many of which offer great over-60s discounts. Here are some of the best senior concessions:
- National Trust Senior Membership: if you're over 60 and you've been a National Trust member for five of the last ten years, you can get a 25% discount on your membership. Call 0344 800 1895 to claim.
- English Heritage Senior Membership: adults over 65 can buy an English Heritage membership for £4.75 a month or £57 for a year (compared to £5.33 a month and £64 standard membership).
If you're considering a holiday away, you can also find discounts and savings on Holiday breaks, cruises and bus tours. With plenty of holiday packages specifically for older people, there's a huge array of places to visit without breaking the bank.
It's a great idea to check out sites like Saga that showcase UK breaks. You should also do an online search and comparison of holidays to see where the best deal is.
Cruises are a great option and it's always worth ringing up companies and asking if they do any special rates for those aged 55 and over. See Cruise118's guide for more details on receiving a discount on your next cruise.
