  • 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 »

  • Definitely worth going to see! A crowd of hundreds, took minutes to get inside and it dispersed so quickly we were never in a throng at all once we got inside, very well managed. The tour was great, and the tanks converted from the old stone tunnels were very interesting! The number of views of the main shark tank with the Easter Island Head is very clever, seeing it from every possible angle. The Amazon rainforest was an unexpected surprise and the penguin enclosure was great. Definitely would recommend buying the anytime express ticket to visit at your leisure rather than being tied to a time slot, just make sure you get a ticket of some sort as this is definitely a trip highlight.
  • Great for all ages. I have been with many different children aged between 1-15 and all have had a brilliant time and enjoyed themselves. Is obviously busier during half terms, which sometimes means you are given a time to enter and cannot just enter straight away- last time we had to wait about half an hour or so, but just went to one of the many nearby places to eat and got something while we waited. The staff here are all lovely and once even sang happy birthday to one of the children which was a lovely extra touch. Some of it is sad though, I hate seeing the penguins walking on the plastic painted white to pretend to be snow, and the sharks just swimming round and round in a circle :( but the kids love it, so we go.
  • Wheelchair and stroller/buggy friendly. Really wide range of sea species. Jellyfish, Octopus, Penguins just to name a few. Buying tickets for multiple attractions works out well if you have the time. £25 is general ticket price without promotion. The whale skeleton tunnel is a neat touch. Couple different types of sharks can be found as well on all floors. The closest tube stop is Waterloo. Pick the time of day to go to avoid massive crowds.
  • Amazing place... my daughter and i absolutely loved it. Its not cheap but it is stunning. Simply so many different creatures. The turtles were the outstanding favourites and the sharks. Very interactive for the children and adults. You should consider booking as the queues can get very very very long.. not good on a hot day. Absolutely worth a visit
  • A great place to see variety of sea life, jelly fishes, octopus, toads, Penguin and what not. Place is really huge and watching the sea life across the glass is an amazing experience. They have divided certain portion as well depending on the area such as Amazon and ice for penguins. Place is well informative and good for people of all ages. They also click pictures and sell it for 20£ with background changed as sea life. Overall it is an awesome experience to see so much of sea life at a single place.
