Merlin Entertainments is bringing festive joy back to the capital this December as its five famous London attractions reopen in time for Christmas, with an array of seasonal activities in-store.

There will be something for everyone in the family to enjoy this Christmas at the popular landmark attractions. On the world-famous Baker Street, visitors to Madame Tussauds London can attend the most glamorous Christmas Party in town – rubbing shoulders with A List superstars as they head down the red carpet at the attraction’s brand-new Awards Party Zone.

At Shrek’s Adventure! London little ones can help Father Christmas find presents hidden around the attraction and even sit down for a socially distanced meet and greet with the big man himself! Further along the South Bank, The London Dungeon is promising to give visitors a frightful experience this festive season.

Those who need a break from Christmas shopping can step on-board the London Eye and enjoy spectacular views from 135m above the city, or head below the South Bank to SEA LIFE London Aquarium. There guests can stop and wish season’s greetings to the adorable colony of gentoo penguins and experience spell-binding jellyfish, sharks, seahorses and so much more.

All our attractions are COVID-secure and have safety procedures in place to ensure guest’s comfort and wellbeing whilst enjoying the festive fun. Reduced capacities mean pre-booking is required, whilst social distancing measures, cashless payments, temperature checks and mandatory face covering requirements are in place.
