FAMILIES will be able to save money this summer by leaving their car at home when they visit the South Downs.

The national park authority will give two-for-one entry to any of its 17 attractions to families who travel in by bus or train.

The park has also provided 11 easy guides for parents to work their way around, without the stress of getting lost in the Downs.

The guides will not only give families an easy map to navigate all the different attractions, it will also tell them what trains and buses will take them to what attraction.

Allison Thorpe, who leads on access and recreation for the national park authority, said: ‘Millions of people visit the South Downs each year but many don’t realise that so many attractions are easy to reach by bus or train.

‘With these offers everyone wins, parents save money and don’t have the stress of finding a parking space or facing holiday traffic.’
