We love birthdays. We love free stuff. It turns out, the two go together like cake and candles, with many restaurants, bars and attractions that want to treat you on your big day, with brilliant deals and freebies. Some require a little planning – you might have to register or sign up to a loyalty programme beforehand. With others, you simply have to rock up on your big day with proof of your date of birth.
