A spread of London’s most famous attractions have reopened after months of closure because of coronavirus.
The London Eye, Madame Tussauds London, SEA LIFE London Aquarium, The London Dungeon and Shrek’s Adventure! are all open to the public since last weekend.
In line with recent government guidelines, visitors have returned to enjoy all attractions with enhanced hygiene and safety measures implemented.
From the world-famous attractions that saw the launch of the UK’s largest living coral reef display, the 20th birthday party of the London Eye, and the unveiling of Beyoncé’s incredible likeness, the reopening will provide plenty of days out for families.
Visitors can expect to see some new measures in place – such as reduced capacities, pre-booking tickets online, clear social distancing measures and cashless payments Sunny Jouhal, General Manager at the London Eye said: “We are delighted to confirm that all our London attractions will reopen on Saturday August 1st.
“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.”
