How long do tours last?

The tours last approximately 90 minutes no matter what time you enter. This is excluding queuing times which may vary.

What's the best time to visit?

Good question. We love a dark Halloween night ourselves, but for the rest of the year there's just one thing you need to remember. Like any amazingly funny, brilliantly designed and (ha ha) executed attraction... we are very popular. Our guests love us and tend to come back time and time again.

So... make it easy on yourself. BOOK A TICKET IN ADVANCE. That way you:

  • Get to visit when YOU want
  • Know that your place is reserved
  • AND you will get the best available price & save up to 20%
  • Have more fun and less stress - make the most of your day on the Southbank!

Right. Does that make sense? Great, so you know what you have to do. The best way to be sure you have time is to grab a ticket in advance.

Merlin Annual Pass Holders

Online Booking

If you are a Standard or Premium Annual Pass holder you can now pre-book your tickets online by visiting the Merlin Annual Pass Website

Box Office Booking

When you arrive, you will as normal join the queue to get in, however when the queue starts to build, rather than waiting in line the team will issue you a ticket for the first available 15 timeslot to return.   At the specified time you can return and gain access to the attraction by showing the team at the door both your Merlin Annual Pass and ticket we issued.

 Whilst it is inevitable there may be a small queue to secure your time, and there will always be a short wait in our preshow area we hope to see a significant reduction in the time you queue – and that in turn this will really improve your visit. 

Due to the popularity of the attraction in holiday periods, we recommend arriving as early in the day as possible to secure your preferred timeslot and avoid disappointment.  If in the event that we are unable to give you the timeslot you require on that day, we will book you into a timeslot on another day of your choice.

 Standard Passes are not valid  on the following dates:

3rd & 6th April, 4th & 25th May, The month of August, 29th - 31st October inclusive, 25th, 26th & 28th December 2015. Together with any further Bank Holidays added through the
course of the year.

Combination Tickets

If you have purchased your tickets from The London Eye, Madame Tussuad's or Sea Life London Aquarium.

When you arrive, you will as normal join the queue to get in, however when the queue starts to build, rather than waiting in line the team will issue you a ticket for the first available 15 timeslot to return.   At the specified time you can return and gain access to the attraction by showing the team at the door the ticket we issued.

Whilst it is inevitable there may be a small queue to secure your time, and there will always be a short wait in our preshow area we hope to see a significant reduction in the time you queue – and that in turn this will really improve your visit.

Due to the popularity of the attraction in holiday periods, we recommend arriving as early in the day as possible to secure your preferred timeslot and avoid disappointment. 

Please note that combination tickets do not guarantee you entry unless you have visited our Box Office. If we are sold out for the day (quite common in Peak times) then you will be asked to book for another day.
