Brits will be able to claim money-off vouchers for tourist attractions as part of a £10million boost to the tourism industry.
The scheme is being launched by the National Lottery later this year as part of the government Tourism Recovery Plan.
Through the initiative, lottery players will be able to gain entry to UK attractions between September 2020 and March 2022.
A new rail pass will also be launched, offering flexible travel across the country and discounts to certain tourist places.
Sky News reports how the rail pass will work in the same way to the BritPass, which is aimed at international tourists visiting the UK on holiday.

The tourism industry has been hard hit by the coronavirus crisis with thousands of museums, galleries and other attractions forced to close for large parts of the last 12 months.
Tourism, hospitality and leisure businesses have received more than £25billion in grants, loans and tax breaks to help keep businesses afloat, the government said.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport hasnt revealed a list of places where youll be able to use the vouchers, or how Brits can go about claiming them.
The Tourism Recovery Report also doesn’t say how much money off the vouchers will give, or if it will be a percentage amount.
Details are expected to be revealed later this year before the scheme launches in the autumn.

Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston MP said: “Our brilliant tourism sector is one of our country’s greatest assets, making a huge contribution to our economy and delivering jobs across all communities.
“This is why we’ve provided it with £25bn in support so far during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Tourism Recovery Plan is our blueprint for how the sector can build back better from the pandemic, even faster than forecasts predict.
“It has been a challenging year for the tourism sector, especially for our cities, but I know they stand ready to welcome visitors back and I encourage everyone to rediscover the UK’s fantastic tourism offer.”
Visit Britain chairman Lord Patrick McLoughlin welcomed the plan, saying: “Tourism is a critical industry, a powerhouse of innovation, creativity and employment, injecting cash into the economy with a track record for growth and levelling-up, supporting local economies in every part of the UK and strengthening our place on the world stage.
“By working together to drive demand and build back visitor spend as quickly as possible we can emerge from the pandemic and also look towards a brighter future building an industry that is more resilient, sustainable, inclusive and innovative.”
