MSE Update, Thu 2 Apr at 10am: Following the Government's advice to avoid furthering the spread of the coronavirus, all theme parks are temporarily closed.
Chessington, Thorpe Park, Warwick Castle and Alton Towers are all closed until further notice. They'll be contacting anyone who has a short break booked in the next few weeks to make other arrangements. Please visit the individual website for more information.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach is closed until further notice. If you've booked a visit between 19 Mar-26th Apr, visit its website to transfer to a new date this season without having to pay the difference.
Legoland Windsor is closed until further notice, but it's hotel remains open. Keep an eye on its website in case this information changes. Legoland Discovery Centres are also closed - if you have tickets booked, check the website of the relevant location.
Drayton Park has closed until further notice. It will be contacting ticket and season pass holders to offer alternative dates. Sea Life London is also closed until further notice and asks ticket holders to get in touch to change dates.
Flamingo Land is closed until further notice. If you've got an annual pass, it will be valid for 12 months from the day the park reopens (though of course, they don't know yet when that will be). Annual pass holders should have been contacted directly already to confirm this. Flamingo Land's website explains that many of its dedicated team of keepers are continuing to work to care for the 1200 animals at this time.

Free protection for all shopping!
There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.
And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
