Star Studded Safety


At Merlin Entertainments our mission is to create truly memorable experiences and we place the utmost importance on the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees.

We have introduced a range of new health and safety measures that seek to reduce the risk associated with the presence of COVID-19 that are in line with government advice and the requirements of local health authorities.

Some of the measures set out below may be clearly visible to you from the moment you arrive at one of our attractions and others require consideration from guests to help ensure everyone has a magical visit.


Covid-19 Update: In line with updated advice from the UK Government, from the 14th September we encourage all guests to adhere to the latest guidance and not meet in groups of more than six people* to help protect themselves and each other when visiting our attraction. As a COVID-19 Secure venue we can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups. We will continue to monitor Government guidance closely. *Government exemptions are outlined on the website.


NHS COVID-19 Smartphone App – QR check-in points

From the 24th September you will be able to find NHS QR ‘check-in’ code posters at key points around our attractions. These QR posters can be scanned on the NHS COVID-19 smartphone App. This QR check-in service is optional and for people who do not have a smartphone, or do not want to use the NHS COVID-19 App, we will continue to manually record lead guest information (including via our booking systems).

You are encouraged to scan the NHS QR code with your smartphone on arrival at our attractions, hotels and when entering one of our seated restaurants (not required in our takeaway food outlets). If you choose to log-in using the official NHS QR code, you do not need to provide your contact details by any other route. However, we will still offer a ‘manual’ option for recording your contact details (lead person only), for people who do not have a smartphone or do not want to use the NHS COVID-19 App.
