If you're one of the 45,000 workers in the emergency services, NHS, social care sector or the armed forces you can bag some discounted tickets to UK attractions. 

Blue Light Card holders have the opportunity to visit a range of attractions including Legoland and Thrope Park over a special week of heavily discounted tickets. 

The service days will see the parks only open for members of the Blue Light scheme along with their families, meaning you can take full advantage of small crowds and faster service.
