With sadness we report that the Great British Heritage Pass has been discontinued by its operator. We've left this page online for its historical interest, but you can no longer purchase a pass.

But all is not lost!

There are alternatives which might be useful, depending on what sort of historic sites you are interested in. Three popular passes are the London Pass, English Heritage membership, and National Trust membership, all of which can offer considerable savings on popular visitor attractions. You can find more details on other London Discount cards here and the VisitBritain online shop has details of other passes such as the Edinburgh Pass and the English Heritage Overseas Visitor Pass.

Free entry to almost 600 top UK attractions in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, from royal palaces to historic houses and gardens. The Great British Heritage Pass is presented by Leisure Pass Group, the same company that is responsible for the popular London Pass.

New to the Great British Heritage Pass is a family pass. This new option offers free entry to all GBHP properties for two adults and up to three children. For the family trip to the UK this can save a lot of money. The family pass can purchased for different durations (4, 7, 15 or 30 days).

Cut your travel costs

Personal recommendations from Britain Express
In our experience, a discount pass can save a lot of money. Entry fees to British attractions can be very expensive, and they add up in a hurry if you are visiting several attractions a day. Particularly if you are visiting in a family group the cost of entry to individual attractions can become a major part of your travel budget.

You'll save a lot of money by investing in a travel pass that covers the majority of attractions you are interested in visiting. The Great British Heritage Pass is an excellent option for overseas visitors.

Other options - which are available to both overseas visitors AND British residents - include taking out a membership in the National Trust, National Trust for Scotland, CADW, English Heritage, or Historic Houses Association. Memberships offer free entry to member attractions, and often offer discounted entry to attractions run by other heritage organizations.
