Can you please tell me what the difference is between the Great British Heritage Pass and the British Heritage Pass? I am so confused. My husband and I will be in England for 3 weeks, 14 days with a car in Bath, The Cotswolds and Wales. We don't have a "set" itinerary so would like to stop when we see something of interest. Would it pay to have one of the passes (for each of us)? I've been on both websites. Thanks.
I beleive they are the same animal. A combined pass to let you into National Trust/English Heritage sites.
Would it pay? look at where you want to go and how many of those are sites of the groups. (Some NT/EH sites do not charge admission).
Also when you are going, many NT/EH house museums close during oct-march.
Hope that helps
Thanks Tom, I have been reading Rick's book and the websites about the passes. I am making a list of the sights we want to see and writing down the prices. We are in our 60's so know there is about a .50 discount on each sight. We will be in England in June. Those going in September 11-14 all museums are FREE. Great but I'm sure quite crowded. Two of the passes are "membership" but we don't want to do that. Now to find that cheap ticket from London to Bath and back. Have a good day.
Bath is great! Be sure to visit the pump room for tea. My wife is a costume historian and loved the costume museum, she spent all day there. We were staying in London and took the train from Paddington. Most of the sites in Bath are centrally located so you do not need a car.
