Know Before You Go
We're good to go
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 ask all those guests who visit our attraction to observe closely our guidelines on maintaining a safe distance between each other and to maintain good hygiene practices and if they or any family member display any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that they postpone their visit.
We’re delighted to be awarded the VisitEngland ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark. This verifies that our attraction meets the Government and public health guidance on COVID-19 and that we have all the required health and safety processes in place to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit.
