Thank heavens for the Merlin passes, I would have been very annoyed if I'd paid to go in there. Very cramped,very busy, lots of school groups hogging the toilets. Same old as you get with every Sealife centre wouldn't have went in if I didn't have the passes.

I had some forebodings on whether or not I wanted to spend what was the equivalent of forty some dollars, but I badly wanted to visit London's aquarium. I thought that the price would be well-spent towards a full day of casual observation. This is an institution that has a lot of history behind it, after all, and while I... More

On the banks of the Thames, this attraction is a must see. From stingrays, sharks, turtles to tropical fish, you can not rush through as it merits at least an hour. The sea horses are great viewing. Thani tank can be viewed from all angles as the sea life swim by so close. This is a photographs delight

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
