  • It was nice to meet the Oceanarium in London! Is located next to wisterminster bridge and London Eye. Very small compared to that of Lisbon. Bought the combo at the box office of the London Eye to 4 attractions for a legal value. Did the Museum Madame Trussard, River Thames, London eye and Sea Life in two days. It was worth it!

  • My friend and I visited Sea Life on a Monday morning. We purchased our Ultimate Aquarium Tickets in advance, expecting priority admission so that we would be able to enter well in time for our 10:15 s...  more »
  • The aquarium is beautiful and there are lots of learning opportunities for children. The shark tank has to be the highlight for us. We visited near the end of the day and did feel a little bit pushed ...  more »
  • Nice little aquarium. As a northern Californian I will mention it cannot compare with Monterey Bay aquarium or San Francisco's Aquarium of the Bay. Jellyfish have never made me so sad as at this aquarium. The place is set up like a tourist attraction. In the front door and one way straight through to the exit and gift shop. It took us under 1 1/2 hours of very leisurely movement to be done. It was definitely a nice break from the pouring rain outside. Located very near many other tourist attractions like the London Eye.
  • So much better than we expected. Excellent layout with lots to see and there is a great progression through the exhibits that build up to a pleasing conclusion with the beautiful penguin enclosure and jelly fish. How could we forget our visit when we were so lucky to be there just as the two turtles were mating, prefect timing. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. And yes the crocodile is real! As the keeper said they spend so much money looking after him and hardly anyone thinks he's alive. Been to a few aquariums in different countries and really didn't expect this to be anything other than a busy overpriced tourist trap... Proven wrong, one of the best not too big not too small and great layout with plenty to see. Recommend!
  • Absolutely loved it here. So much fish to see. The jelly fish section was amazing. You could also touch a star fish! There are also sharks there. There are tunnels of glass where you can see all the fish swim over you. I took my toddler and brother and they both loved it! I recommend for all ages! At the start they put you in a screen where you're asked to look at different cameras and smile to take photos, it's only at the end that they inform you these are photos that you can buy. This was the only downside as three photos are £20 and all photos (around 18 - 3 physical, the rest digital) are £22. This is quite a lot as the amount of entry is £25 per person already. But overall, without photos it's amazing! I highly recommend.
  • Really great aquarium. My two boys had a great afternoon. Make sure you buy tickets online (print own or e-ticket not collection) in advance, the queues can be massive and very slow moving as people collecting tickets get to queue jump but still takes ages. A frustrating start to our visit but the boys still had a great time.
  • Large aquarium located in the old county hall building on the South Bank. Easily accessible by train and tube from Waterloo or tube from Embankment or Westminster. Part of a range of attractions in this area like London Dungeon and London Eye so combination tickets are available. Aquarium has a good range of exhibits; highlights include a large shark tank and penguins. Can be very crowded and best to buy tickets online.
