THE first visitor pass of its kind that will give combined and discounted entry into some of south Warwickshire’s top attractions was launched today, Wednesday.

Shakespeare’s England’s Explorer Pass will offer one-, two- and three-day entry into 19 attractions including the Shakespeare properties, Warwick Castle, Ragley Hall, Compton Verney, Avon Boating, the Magic Alley, and Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall.

It will cost £49, £65 and £75, respectively, for adults, with child tickets also available, and will also offer discounts at shops, hotels, and restaurants.

The pass is thought to be a first for the region.

Helen Peters, chief executive of Shakespeare’s England, said: “We want to encourage visitors to explore further afield seeing attractions they may not have thought to visit, as well as staying longer to experience the very best that our region has to offer.”

The pass will be available to purchase through the VisitBritain Shop, Visitor Information Centre’s in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa and a wide range of distribution partners.
