The firm, which owns and runs Madame Tussauds, Thorpe Park and The London Eye, generated £800.8m revenue last year.

The company, which is owned by private equity firms, stepped backed from a potential stock market listing last year, but a report in the Financial Times suggests plans to list Merlin are still on course.

Merlin has more than 70 attractions in 17 countries and last year purchased a Florida theme park, which will become a Legoland, and became operator of the Blackpool Tower complex.
