Gateway Card

Gateway Card

The Gateway Card is part of the Short Breaks universal offer and supports parents and carers to access attractions throughout Hampshire and further afield. This card indicates to providers that you have already supplied evidence of eligibility to the Short Breaks Team, which in turn means you may not have to present personal and sensitive documents such as DLA awards to prove eligibility if the provider might be for example offering concessions. 

The universal offer is also open to those children and young people who a have a Gateway Card+. 

Use the list below to see what may be on offer. Individual providers reserve the right to withdraw offers at any point and offers may not be available year round. This is only a guide, so please contact individual providers to see what is available. 

If you have used your Gateway Card or Gateway Card+ at an attraction that isn’t listed here or you are a provider who would like to be featured on this list then please let the team know via email:
