Bar & Nightclub queue jump entry Party Pass

Start your evening by visiting the bars on your Party Pass, again, if there is a queue, you can just walk straight to the doorstaff and give them your name to get straight in (R.O.A.R). Then, you can head to the nightclubs for your free entry and queue jump, to party until the small hours :) These Passes are perfect if you don't know the town/city you are staying in, as you don't need local knowledge. Also, if a venue is busy, but not to your particular taste, you can leave and head on to the next one on the list without wasting time or money.Once you have booked, we will send you a confirmation email with the list of venues, recommended entry times and maplinks that you can open in Googlemaps on your phone if you get lost. This Pass includes entry for 6 to 8 venues (the full list and venue details will be on the confirmation we send you). We don't list the venues here because the venues may vary depending on which have the best offers & the best night on.

3-day Isle of Wight and the Southern Coast Small-Group Tour from London

Day 1:  Leave London and head to the sunny, southern Isle of Wight. First, you travel to the ancient port-city of Portsmouth. This bustling spot blends modern marvels with centuries of sea-faring stories. You can grab a bite to eat here before your guide picks you up and takes you to the ferry at Gunwharf Terminal; it takes less than an hour and there’s plenty of onboard refreshments. Your first stop on the Isle of Wight is the important religious site of Quarr Abbey. The building here is beautiful and combines French, Byzantine and Moorish designs. Then, you get to meet some real local heroes. You visit the Bembridge Lifeboat station, where the crew rescue troubled lives out at sea every year. Time to give them a salute. In the evening, you arrive at the unforgettably quaint village of Shanklin in time for an early dinner. Perhaps it’s time to try the seafood? Day 2: Today, you’re going to discover the unmissable highlights of the Isle of Wight. You eat breakfast and then venture to the Yarborough Monument. This is the tallest monument on the island and celebrates the life of a wealthy earl from the 19th century. You continue to a photo-stop at the beautiful views of endless green fields at Brading Downs and then head to Osborne House which was Queen Victoria’s holiday home and as you explore the Italian-style building, you discover pristine green gardens, ornate golden rooms and historically fascinating artefacts. Afer that magnificent man-made marvel, it’s time to see the Isle of Wight’s most beautiful natural wonder, the Needles. These sharp white stacks that stick out of the ocean are beautiful to behold. You can hop on a boat to get close to them and venture to an old defensive battery that’s nearby. Your last stop today is at the cliffs of St. Catherine’s Down. As the sun starts to set, these epic cliffs and green valleys look stunning. You travel back to Shanklin in time for dinner.Day 3: It’s the final day. But cheer up, because we’ve saved some of the best sights for today. In the morning, you say goodbye to Shanklin and head on the ferry back to Portsmouth. Now that you’ve reacquainted yourself with the mainland, we take you to one of England’s most history-soaked cities, Winchester. But visiting Winchester isn’t easy, because there’s almost too much to do. There’s a glorious cathedral, an ancient mill, cute cafes and more than enough museums. After you’ve studied up on the history of England, we’re going to visit the home of one of the world’s most popular gins, Bombay Sapphire. It’s not just the booze that’s brilliant at the Laverstoke Mill, the exhibition and Victorian architecture are as interesting as they are beautiful. Once you’ve had enough of the tipple, it’s time to head home. You have a small refreshment stop at the riverside town of Henley-on-Thames before arriving in London in the evening.
