Summer is finally on the horizon, and for many, this can only mean one thing… summer break! With an abundance of time on their hands, students may be left wondering how to fill their days this summer, whilst still maintaining their tight budgets. In fact, Google searches for ‘Alton Towers student discount’ are up 400% in the past 30 days alone.

Luckily, Yugo, the global student accommodation brand and provider, has delved deep into the world of student discounts to discover the top five UK days out this summer, that come with a special discount for university-goers. Intrigued? Look no further…

Alton Towers 🎢

One of the most iconic theme parks in the UK, and in a great central location - Alton Towers is offering a student discount on its ticket prices this year! From thrilling rollercoasters, to spooky ghost trains, to wacky water rapids - there are over 40 rides and attractions for all levels of bravery to enjoy.

To grab a whopping £48 discount (making your tickets just £20 for a theme park day pass) simply book online with your StudentBeans student status – and then pick up your tickets on the day! Be sure to bring your student status with you for verification.

Thorpe Park 🎡

If you are looking for a little more high-voltage, Thorpe Park is also offering student pricing. The self-professed ‘UK’s most thrilling theme park’ is home to the UK’s fastest roller coaster, one of Europe’s tallest water rides, and the UK’s first live Black Mirror experience. That was a mouthful – but an impressive one.

To secure your £42 discount, pre-book your student ticket online, and use your valid student ID to collect your ticket at the resort on the day for just £22. Simple!

Sea Life Centre 🐙

Lover of all things ocean? If you can’t quite make it to a sunny beach resort this summer, the Sea Life Centre is a great rainy-day alternative. Discover over 60 displays of freshwater and marine life – including jellyfish, penguins, turtles, sharks, and sea otters.

To get your 20% discount, simply book your tickets online via the Sea Life Centre website, and present your valid student ID upon arrival (Monday-Friday only). Be sure to check your local Sea Life Centre accepts student discounts!

Go Ape 🧗‍♀️

With 34 exhilarating alfresco locations around the UK, Go Ape is the UK’s number one outdoor adventure company – and is offering a student discount! Take on its treetop challenge and experience freefall swings, super-fast zipwires, and 25m high tree crossings – some serious grown-up fun.

For a 10% discount on its treetop challenge, simply grab a discount code from StudentBeans and secure your tickets on the Go Ape website. Remember, your discount is only valid from Monday – Friday!

Virgin Experience Days 🏎

If theme parks, nature displays, and thrilling alfresco adventures aren’t your cup of tea – Virgin Experience Days is here to help. With 1000’s of experiences for everyone to enjoy – from afternoon tea to race car driving – Virgin Experience Days isn’t the UK’s leading experience gift provider for no reason!

For a whopping 20% off an experience day, simply grab your code from your Unidays account, and get browsing! You can either buy these tickets as a gift, or a self-indulgent day out (and we bet we know which one you are going to choose…)

So, with five great days out ideas (with even greater discounts) which activities will you be taking on this summer? Remember, always ask if you can use your student discount – you never know where it might be valid!
