Merlin Entertainments to reopen London attractions this Saturday

In line with recent Government guidelines, Merlin Entertainments will welcome guests back to enjoy all attractions on 1 August with enhanced hygiene and safety measures implemented throughout to ensure visitors have an incredible day out, whilst keeping safety a top priority for all.

From the world-famous attractions that saw the launch of the UK’s largest living coral reef display, the show-stopping 20th birthday party for an iconic part of London’s skyline, and the unveiling of Beyoncé’s incredible likeness, the reopening announcement will be welcome news to friends and families looking for the ultimate summer staycation line-up in the capital.

Guests can expect to see some new measures in place – such as reduced capacities, pre-booking tickets online, clear social distancing measures and cashless payments – to guarantee the highest level of hygiene and safety standards. All staff have undergone robust and rigorous training so they can uphold the new safety measures while still delivering a magical day out.

Sunny Jouhal, General Manager at the London Eye, said, “The health and safety of our guests and team is always our number one priority. We have been working hard behind the scenes to reopen with the memorable and exciting experiences we are known for, delivered in the safest possible way.

'In line with recent Government guidelines, our teams have implemented numerous measures to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone visiting our attractions in the capital. These include reduced capacities, clear social distancing measures, pre-booking tickets online, cashless payments and enhanced cleaning procedures.

'We fully recognise, along with many other businesses, that after months of closure the London tourism sector has a long road to recovery ahead of it. As we start to welcome guests back through the doors, and get back to what we do best, we ask the Government to continue supporting our industry and working with us to get the capital back on its feet.”
