Nothing fancy or exciting here - just your average centre but in the middle of London. The displays are standard and the staff friendly as always. The biggest letdown is the other visitors. Most are totally ignorant of signs and happily snap away with flash photography and bang constantly on the glass.

I`ve been there a few years ago, so probably the place improved since that time. The thing I remember that was quite dark and like a maze (labyrinth). Seen a few nice jelly fish and other rare fish and was a stingray aquarium to touch them. I guess we did not go through the whole place as at some point... More

We visited Sea Life Aquarium yesterday and queued for about 30 minutes, before being able to buy tickets and enter. The tickets are reasonably priced, as is the guide book and there is at least a few hours worth of entertainment to be had including the live talks and feedings. All of the creatures are well kept, in extremely large... More

I took my four children under 9 and they were mesmerised. It's about an hours visit where you literally walk through the tunnels of the underwater sea world. The customer service & in house team were fantastic. A constant flow through without hold ups.

Very well laid out attraction showing fish from different areas of the world. However do think they should limit the number of strollers as I was constantly knocked into by these and ended up with several bruises on my legs. Also it was very noisy due to the large numbers of screaming children. Staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable about... More

We came here on a busy Friday morning in July. It was a great attraction with plenty to see and very helpful friendly staff. We would defiantly come back again. Loved it.

Nice but to be honest I was expecting something more. Specially for that price.. With the same money you can do something more interesting.

We included this in our London Eye ticket. For an aquarium in the middle of a city it's very complete. Lots to see and stuff for kids to enjoy. If you have the time it's a fun experience.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
