Free and reduced entry at National Lottery funded ventures

Written by: Emma Lunn
More than £40bn has been raised by the National Lottery over the past 25 years.

National Lottery punters can get free entry or special offers at a range of lottery-backed attractions between 23 November and 1 December 2019.

The deals are part of a project thanking lottery players for raising more than £40bn for good causes over the past 25 years.

Visitors can use any National Lottery ticket or scratchcard – old or new –  to receive free entry, discounted prices and other special offers at Lottery-funded venues across the UK including Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, Hillsborough Castle and RSPB Ynys-hir Reserve. The full list of participating attractions can be found at

On the #ThanksToYou events page you can search all the offers taking place in your area and filter by specific interest, everything from free entry to a Royal Navy Submarine, to discounted theatre tickets and free guided walks at RSPB conservation areas.

The National Lottery is encouraging participants to take a photo of their day out and share them on social media using the hashtag: #ThanksToYou

The National Lottery has funded some of the UK’s most loved tourist attractions from Hillsborough Castle; to National Trust Scotland’s Battle of Bannockburn centre; to the British Museum and Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard as well as some of the most famous establishments which house iconic artwork such as the Royal Academy of Arts.

The promotion is part of The National Lottery’s birthday celebrations which are running for a five-week period (from 14 October until 6 December).
