Bargain Hunter: Make a saving following in the steps of super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes

 

If you want more Sherlock Holmes after last Sunday's final episode, there's a Walking Tour of London where fans can visit locations featured in the Benedict Cumberbatch BBC drama. It also goes to places featured in the movie adaptations with Robert Downey Jr, and those featured in Arthur Conan Doyle's books. The walk is held on Saturdays at 11am between February and October, and by booking ahead you can save 5 per cent on the gate price, cutting the cost from £12 to £11.30 for adults and from £10 to £9.40 for children.

The offer, from www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/sale, includes a partnership with the Ashford Designer Outlet, which is also offering Southeastern customers an extra 10 per cent off at more than 40 of its stores.
