I agree entirely, I can just see it happenning in say London can you imagine? They'd never get away with it, and I for one find it insulting that as a 'visitor' and paying tourist you're exploited. And I've never even visited the country - yet :)


There are plenty of places in the UK which do not charge residents for entrance to tourist attractions ....


Where are these? For residents only?



They are based on proof of residency. e.g.
http://www.cornwalltouristpass.com/


Oh no they're not.

The Cornwall Tourist Pass in its three different formats is the most widely accepted discount card in Cornwall, helping visitors and residents save hundreds of pounds by working closely with businesses throughout the county!

The card is sold to visitors for £10 and is valid for 14 days. There are also two Cornwall resident cards. The Cornwall Summer Residents Card is valid between 1st April & 31st September and costs £20. The Cornwall Resident Winter Card is valid between 1st October & 31st March and is sold for £15. The card can be purchased by Tourists, Students & Residents. Make the most of your visit with a pass that gives you unlimited discounted admission to top attractions for one low price. Plus savings of up to 25% on shopping and dining.

Whether you use the Card to enjoy all the benefits in one location or many, close to home or on holiday, it offers exceptional value. Choose from hundreds of businesses.

Anyone over the age of 16 can purchase the cards. This does not restrict under 16’s from taking advantage of the benefits of the cards, but ensures the purchase of the cards is a responsible one taken in full knowledge and understanding of its terms and use.

Sunshine? In Sheffield? You'll be lucky! :)
I never knew I lived in such an interesting and beautiful city, thanks for the link, I've only lived here all my life! Seriously it is a good site and has all the best places on it, try and visit Chatsworth House in Derbyshire if you can well worth the visit. All we need now is the sunshine!!

Chatsworth House is not in Sheffield. Derbyshire starts where Fulwood ends.

No, but it is in Derbyshire I believe, which is what gillybean stated! As Sheffield borders Derbyshire, no doubt she may have visited in the past!

These 'passes' that you are all on about are not a new invention. I remember a few years back on a visit to York we were asked if we would like a family pass (that lasted the summer season if memory serves me correctly!). Even though we were not stopping all summer long, it was worth our while as we gained cheaper entry into several places - cannot remember if the Minster was one of them!
Again, a similar scenario when visiting Beamish museum. We were offered a year pass which allowed unlimited admission for the family. (Again, we had to decline!)

Places like these want tourists, no matter which part of the country/world they are from!

Right, will step down from my soapbox now!!

My point been you cannot receive a pass in Yorkshire for a place in Derbyshire.It is also against the law to discriminate when allocating reduced rate and free passes in the UK.

Just as well we are in Cyprus then :lol: Discrimination hasn't quite been "got at" yet, here!

Sometimes it's very nice to break away from all the political correctness. Yet another reason why we came to live in Cyprus...

We still see job adverts in the newspapers advertising for a "young lady" etc, etc :) I'd quite forgotten those days.........
