According to most places, we are not a family, as there are only 3 of us! Even though recent research shows that nearly half of families are one-child affairs.
I always feel snubbed, I may be hypersensitive but get totally hacked off when I see ‘Group Save’ but must be for a party of 5 and families are always defined as four or more. Grrr! On occasion, I’ve borrowed mates kids!
I appreciate that this allows for larger families to visit such attractions but……
- On the weekend we went to a local attraction, a family of 3 cost £20.50 when a family ticket for 4 is £22.50 – not much in it really.
- London Zoo charges £63.00 for a family of 3 or a family of 4 for £66.70
- The London Aquarium charges £56.40 for 3 people while a family of 4 is £64.26.
- I applaud Legoland, as they do offer a price for a family of 3 but at £127.80, it’s still out of reach.
The bottom line is, that as a parent, I don’t normally want to go to these places in the first place, I’d rather chew my own arm off but I do it for my daughter. I have been through things that are more painful than childbirth. You’re getting 3 people through the door that you may not otherwise.
Come on, give us a break. Just a couple of quid off and I’ll stop moaning!
I’d love to hear what single parents have to say about this!
Do you think this is fair?
