This was my first trip to SEA LIFE London and it was a great experience with the highlight being able to get into the water and snorkel with sharks. It was very well organised and I felt very safe behind a net but the sharks swam by really close to look at us and it was such an amazing opportunity... More

I've been to many aquariums and this one is decent. It is not big and takes about 90 minutes to go through the aquarium. The signage and walls are nicely done so you learn facts and tidbits about sealife. There was one area that had a live human interacting with the kids and explain about sea creatures to the kids....

....this is the UK,we're crap at "attractions"....we are not Disney, Epcot or Sea World however, it was perfectly acceptable, the kids (9&11) loved it and to be honest because they did, so did I and although it's a little pricy (it's all relative) I'd recommend it to those with younger kids (not teens) and prepare yourself for a leisurely 60...

This was my 2nd time in Sealife London. I went this time only because I was with my nephew who couldn't go without assistance. I was positively surprised since they improved a lot since last time I've been there. There not too many text to read with overload of information which makes you want to read almost everything. Glass is... More

I have been to many aquariums around the world and expected one in the centre of London to be really good. This really was not the case. I went with my boyfriend and we were in and out in under an hour and both felt disappointed with he experience. The best part was seeing the penguins but there was only... More

We visited London aquarium and were very impressed. It's quite costly at just over £20 per adult, although there are often promotions for 2 for 1 or something (Kellogg's cereal packet token). The sharks were amazing, and the tunnel through the huge tank was great although could do with being cleaned a little more often so it was clear and... More

It was an average aquarium and didn't do justice to the hype or the cost. We love nature and this was subpar in terms of habitats. Underwhelming and lacked eco-friendly vibe.

Very claustrophobic, with quite small viewing areas. Aircon very ineffective. Could hardly move with the amount of buggies. Save your money and give it a miss
