NO TRICKS, ONLY TREATS THIS OCTOBER AT LONDON’S FIVE MERLIN ATTRACTIONS
Get spooked and see the sights this half-term at The London Dungeon, SEA LIFE London Aquarium, Madame Tussauds London, the lastminute.com London Eye and Shrek’s Adventure! London
This October, Merlin Entertainments is bringing some fang-tastic family fun to London. From the South Bank to Baker Street, the five London attractions are offering guests a huge range of activities for adventure seekers big and small to get stuck into.
From spooky scarecrows to creepy crawlies, sensational sights and celebrity selfies, Merlin’s London attractions have something for everyone to enjoy this half term.
While visitors can expect to see some new measures in place – such as reduced capacities, pre-booking tickets online, clear social distancing measures, face coverings to be worn by staff and guests, and cashless payments, when it comes to the fun, scares, sights and adventure that each attraction offers, nothing has changed.
The London Dungeon: The Final Straw
Running until 31st October, visitors to the London Dungeon can venture through the Corridor of Misdemeanours to hear all about the dark history of scarecrows and why they were first invented. But guests will need to keep their wits about them, as not every scarecrow is what they seem…
Whilst at The London Dungeon, guests can also explore the rest of the attraction and all the horrors it’s home to, from Jack the Ripper to the Great Plague, and everything in between.
SEA LIFE London Aquarium: Creepy Crawly Adventure
Open from Saturday 17th October – Sunday 1st November, SEA LIFE London Aquarium’s Rainforest Adventure is taking a scary turn this Halloween as it is overrun by thousands of creepy crawlies. If brave enough, guests are invited to discover some of the Amazon’s most amazing inhabitants, including the UK’s largest population of Piranhas, Crocodiles, Poison Dart Frogs and Snapping and Pig Nosed Turtles. There is so much more to discover throughout the rest of the attraction too, from Shark Walk, Penguin Point and Rock Pool Explorer, all the way to Coral Kingdom.
Madame Tussauds London
While the world of showbiz has had to cancel concerts, premieres and parties this year, the famous faces at Madame Tussauds London will still be celebrating Halloween. The world famous attraction’s figures will be sporting spooky accessories and guests will be encouraged to don their favourite fancy dress outfits when they visit throughout half term to earn themselves some delicious chocolate treats.
If fancy dress isn’t your thing Madame Tussauds London is still teeming with half term fun. Meet the recently reinstated One Direction boys, square up to Anthony Joshua’s new figure or share any burning opinions with Boris Johnson and Donald Trump in the Downing St set – they’ll be all ears!
