    We visited with our five year old. We were not particularly impressed with the place though it is rated very highly. Yes, there are lots of types of fishes and sharks, but even our five year old seeme...  more »

    This is a very beautiful aquarium, but I highly recommend you visit during the off-season or first thing in the morning. I was not able to get to the aquarium until the afternoon, and by then I couldn...  more »

    I've always been a massive shark fan, even more so when I came face to face with a Grey Reef in Mexico. However the shark tank at the aquarium seems to be a well kept secret amd certainly not one well...  more »

    Fun outing for couples, families, and travelers. Facility is small but interesting with lots of facts posted around the exhibits. Very dark. More staff needed for the animal's sakes (too often did I see people put their hands in the water despite multiple signs telling guests not to, flashing bright lights into the exhibits, and kids/adults literally banging on the glass). Some exhibits seemed new but really you're just seeing it from several different viewpoints. Overall fun but pricey as is everything else in London.

    The sea life enclosures are very dark and does not do justice to the great sea life represented. The rest of the displays were great. Much better lighting and visibility of the great diversity represented. It would be a much nicer experience, if patrons were able to move more freely back and forth between displays. It was a very busy Sunday morning and was forced to move with the flow through the displays. Being a member and almost daily visitor of the Two Oceans Aqaurium in Cape Town, South Africa, I really appreciate the freedom it provides.

    Great! Very relaxing and mesmerizing to watch all kinds of sea life swim about. Easy to read facts as well. I know that makes me sound like a stupid person, but if I really wanted to do some serious research, there are books and Internets. I love short and straight to the point facts when I'm in a place like this as it allows me to enjoy it more. We also happen to be there during feeding time for the sharks, that was pretty cool to watch. I think it's amazing to be so up close to so many species, especially the sharks and piranhas. The floor when you enter is very cool too.

    Really good fun, definitely wouldn't suggest going on a weekend though. Very busy and didn't feel like I could look at everything because of this... Nethertheless it was good fun; the jellyfish part was definitely my favourite! Loads of UV light and colours, brilliant 👌

    Absolutely disgraceful attraction. I bought tickets for four grieving children and couldn't get access.. They make it impossible to book a time slot. Take your money no problem, but give you a false number to book a time slot. Extremely poor customer service. The place should be shut down. Babies are free, but don't you dare take a buggy.. Would advise you give this place a miss

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
