Full description
Get a range of benefits with a 9-day or 16-day single or family English Heritage Overseas Visitor Pass, offering free entry to more than 100 stately homes, castles, prehistoric remains and gardens the length and breadth of England. Only available to non-UK residents, the great value pass will save you money even if you only visit 2 or 3 attractions, making a 9-day pass suitable for a weekend break. You can visit as many English Heritage attractions as you like, and come back as many times as you want to. But the more places you visit, the more money you save! Plan your vacation with the help of our overseas visitor Guidebook. The English Heritage website will also help you plan your visit before you travel. Once you have decided which attractions to explore, there is no need to get your money out at every attraction, and no need to keep track of your spending. The monuments bring the story of England to life, and have all been selected for their historic significance. Located in some of the most beautiful settings in England, they include mighty castles, tranquil monastic ruins, pleasant gardens and grand stately homes. Many host special events throughout the year, and your pass also gives you free or reduced price entry. You might even come face-to-face with a knight in shining armor.

    We traveled the length of Britain from Dover to Hadrian's Wall over 16 days and were extremly pleased at the value the English Heritage pass. We saved over a third of the costs over eight sites including parking. Our EH guidebook is dogeared and worn and is a great souvenir of our journey. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    This was the perfect way to see may different places. Some we planned from the map and others we just saw the heritage sign from the road and stopped if we had time. Would love it if the road signs indicated the distance from road to sites as it would be very helpful if on a timeline. Defiantly would get this again.

    Wir haben unseren 16-Tage-Pass in Battle Abbey (Nähe Hastings) abgeholt und sind dort äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend mit all unseren Fragen empfangen worden. Der Umtausch des GYG-Vouchers ging problemlos. - Leider fand sich auf den GYG- Erklärungsseiten die Information, dass der Familienpass 4 Kinder unter 19 Jahren inkludiere. Leider ist dem aber nicht so, wie wir in Battle Abbey erfuhren, sondern es gilt nur für Kinder unter 18 Jahren. So mussten wir für unseren 18-jährigen Sohn einen extra „adult“ -Pass kaufen. Da kann aber English Heritage nichts dafür; die Information wäre bitte auf den Seiten von Get Your Guide zu ändern. Ansonsten war das ganze Buchungs-Prozedere sehr angenehm, schnell und einwandfrei. Und ich finde es prima, dass es für Oversea-Touristen so Kurzzeitig-Pässe gibt, die einem den Abschluss einer Jahresmitgliedschaft ersparen.
