There are so many great benefits to being a Boundless member, from member days to exclusive events. You can also make great savings on days out for the whole family.
Here, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite deals on days out for September. From theatre trips to Formula One experiences, there really is something for everyone…
1. Ride in a cop car
Ever wondered what it would be like to work in another public sector job – for example, the police? Well, through Virgin Experience Days, you can enjoy a three-mile drive in an authentic police interceptor vehicle (a full safety briefing will be provided), before being taken on a thrilling, high-speed passenger ride with a professional instructor. Normally, this experience would cost £109, but Virgin has slashed the price to just £39. With Boundless members able to get 20% off all Virgin Experience Days, that fee drops to just £31.20. Sounds like an arresting deal!
2. Catch some thrilling rugby action
The men’s rugby World Cup may be getting all the attention at the moment, but the blokes aren’t the only ones who’ll be scrumming down this month. The England women’s team – aka the Red Roses – will be playing Canada not once but twice, locking horns for the first time at Exeter’s Sandy Park on 23 September, and then again at London’s StoneX Stadium on 30 September. As a Boundless member, you’ll be able to save 4% on the admission price if you book through Ticketmaster. Not a bad conversion, eh!
3. Marvel at some stunning sculptures
Experience some magic at Kew Gardens with free access to a stunning exhibition featuring Pakistani-American contemporary artist Anila Quayyum Agha's breathtaking sculptures in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art. You'll encounter two mesmerizing sculptures, including "All the flowers are for me". This masterpiece, a suspended steel cube with intricate laser-cut designs, casts captivating shadows that fill the space. Inspired by Islamic art and architecture, the sculptures delve into themes of cultural connection and harmony.
4. Coin it in
Curious about our coinage? Get a behind-the-scenes view from Assistant Curator of The Royal Mint Museum Chris Barker at our free online member event on 21 September. Or why not pay a visit yourself? Virgin Experience Days offers guided tours with lunch at the company’s state-of-the-art HQ in Llantrisant, near Cardiff – you can even strike your own coin to take home. Boundless members save 20%, so you can save yourself, well, a mint.
5. Take in a show
For sheer entertainment value, nothing beats a trip to the theatre. Ordinarily, it can cost a small fortune to take the whole family to see a show. However, if you’re a Boundless member, you can get 10% off your tickets through our partner TodayTix. There are loads of great plays and musicals to choose from at the moment, ranging from Mrs Doubtfire to Matilda, The Wizard of Oz to Wicked. So, why not treat them to an experience they’ll never forget.
6. Meet some LEGO® animals
It doesn’t matter if you’re six or 60 – LEGO is the gift that just keeps on giving. And if you visit WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre in Lancashire at the moment, you’ll find a range of cute animals recreated using the iconic coloured bricks. From a North American river otter to a Hawaiian goose, these sculptures have been painstakingly pieced together to give you and your kids a special treat as you explore the reserve. And seeing as Boundless members can visit all 10 of the UK’s WWT sites absolutely free, you won’t have to spend a penny.
7. Take a trip to a theme park
Flamingo Land, nestled in the heart of Yorkshire, has established itself as a beloved family destination perfect for a late-season September day out. This dynamic theme park and resort, conveniently situated just 25 miles northwest of York, promises a delightful day for all ages. From thrilling rides to adorable animals, the park caters to a diverse range of interests and ages. The attractions are designed with accessibility in mind, accommodating both the youngest explorers, those with mobility aids, and families with prams. Enhancing the experience, substantial savings are within reach when you book through the Kids Pass app a part of Boundless membership.
8. Get your fix of F1 thrills
The 2023 British Grand Prix may have been and gone, but you can still experience the thrills and spills of Formula One at The Silverstone Museum. With over 60 hands-on exhibits to discover, from operating a wind tunnel to climbing into a real-life racing car, and even stepping out onto the famous track itself, this outstanding attraction is an absolute must for motoring fans. Entry to The Silverstone Museum usually costs £50 for two people through Virgin Experience Days. However, as a Boundless member, you can get 20% off any Virgin experience, meaning you’ll pay just £40.
9. See some cute animals
