Defiantly well worth a visit, much better and bigger than other sealife aquariums visited and there is a lot to see and various displays rather than just fish and rays like other aquariums. Also there is a bonus of seeing the penguins! However, it is expensive considering it only takes a couple of hours to explore so I would advise... More

Poor flow around the exhibits, poor air quality in passages, too congested and worst of all a big money trap with youngsters eg, impossible to bypass the gift shop at the end. Was glad to get outside and take a breather! Wouldn't recommend for a calm visit. Way too hectic and not good value

So much bigger than any other Sea Life centre we had visited in the past. After having previously visited one in Norwich and Hunstanton and coming away disappointed, I was pleased to see that this particular Sea Life centre actually took a decent amount of time to get around with lots to see. It was more expensive than the others... More

Took the grandchildren on the spur of the moment at around 4pm while their mother was recovering from op at St. Thomas'. Knew the tickets would be expensive but not mentally prepared for the reality of 'walk up' prices. What a nightmarish quality the Aquarium has: so airless and confined; we were annoyed at having waited so long to get... More

We had the good fortune to remember to book ahead and so got to queue jump otherwise I really would have been angry about this waste of time and money! You walk in and you get steered round to have your photo taken before you're forced into a tight corridor toward two knackered old lifts and a couple of staff... More

It was a half term day trip to London with my grand-daughter on a damp drizzly day and it would appear that many others had the same idea. Despite having to queue for over an hour it was a worth-while attraction that was not only a treat but educational for adults and children. If you are making the Aquarium the... More

It's so small in there so became over crowded quickly, not pram friendly at all. Really overpriced I really wouldn't recommend going there. The most saddest thing I saw was the poor penguins, they give you a big description of all these wonderful things they do to keep the penguins in there natural environment with the temperatures and lighting etc...
