The dramatic fall in revenue suffered by the London tourist industry following the 7 July bombings in the capital has prompted the London city council to discount entrance fees to Londons top attractions for people presenting a bus or underground ticket. The offer covers museums, restaurants and West End theatres as well as famous attractions like the London Eye, where, for example, a 2 for 1 deal is available to London Transport passengers. The same applies at Madame Tussauds famous wax museum, and there are further discounts at London Zoo, the London Aquarium, London Dungeons and, for cricket fans, at Lord's. There is a 20 per cent reduction on the entrance price to exhibitions at museums including the British, Natural History, Science, V&A and Design Museums and a 30 per cent discount at the Tate Modern and Tate Britain shows. Theatre-goers can get up to 60 per cent off top price tickets and matinees by waving the magic bus or Tube ticket and there are substantial discounts offered by a number of London restaurants taking part in the scheme. Full details can be found on the Transport for London website
