Free entry to major attractions with Blue Peter badge

Master Bargain Hunter finally got his Blue Peter badge and as well as being extremely proud of him, I was well chuffed to see how much money we will be saving when visiting places like Warwick Castle, the Tower of London and Alton Towers as kids with Blue Peter badges get in for nothing.

Of course, your little un needs to put in some effort to get the badge and prove that they are worthy. In Master Bargain Hunter’s case, he got a green badge. His badge was awarded for sending in a letter (he had to write it by himself) and pictures (we used photos) of him doing activity that helps the environment. He was a beaver scout so did lots of things that qualified him for the badge, from building bug huts, going on nature trials, cleaning up parks and more.

When applying for a badge, we sent a letter, with Master Bargain Hunter’s DOB, home address and pictures to:

Blue Peter
M50 2BH

It took ages! Over eight weeks to get the badge, but once he had it, I applied for a badge card for him as that’s what you need to get into places for free. Once you fillin the online form, you will receive an email around two days later and then a card should arrive within six weeks.

You have to be between 6 – 15 years old to qualify for the badge, and you can gain free entry into over 200 Blue Peter Badge Attractions around the country such as theme parks, zoos and castles.

    To all blue peter badge holders please check dates if you intend to use your badge at Blackpool tower as they are not valid in high season . We tried to get our daughter in on our recent trip but were told even though she could enter the sea life centre and Madame Tussaud's who are also owned by merlin she could not enter the tower as it was high season,they claimed it was in the same print on terms and conditions,yet it is not made clear to you when you check the web page to see what you get in for free. So don't get caught out like we did.
