The facility is well laid out and adequate information is available at the various tanks, laid out like one is walking through caves. We walked past stations where kids were busy with painting...

this was a very nice day along the south bank where we popped into the aquarium, although it is clean and the fish look well maintained, I though the price of £23 each!!! was very expensive for what is essentially one large tank you see several times. I would save your money to be honest

Great aquarium. Awesome shark tank featuring several species. Amazing manta rays, and you get to see the eggs the Rays lay. Always love to see aquariums.

Had a lovely afternoon walking round with my partner. Definitely worth it, particularly if you buy a ticket for this, madame tussauds, london dungeons and the london eye all together!

As soon as you hand over your ticket and enter, the thrill begins! Full packed of sea life, with it all being underground too adds a nice feel. If you are lucky enough to visit during feeding time for them piranhas then it's a bonus!

So this is a review in two halves. I loved it, thought it was a wonderful place with enough information to keep me interested. My girlfriend didn't like it. Too many blank,old, tired spaces, not enough displays. My only criticism was that the information panels were to small and not enough of them. Plus many of the fish were not... More

My partner and I went to enjoy our day off at the Aquarium and had a fantastic time being so amazed by some species and we laugh a lot with penguins!

My son absolutely loved it! We were there first thing so we didn't have to worry about the crowds. He would shout out the names of all the different sea animals and get really excited every time we turned a corner. The touch tank with the starfish and anemone was a nice touch too. The gentleman who was stationed there... More

First time last year I've been with my 2 boys of 4 and 6 years old, and we all loved it! We booked online so we didn't have to queue the day of the visit. It was Saturday so it was full of people and quite hot inside but we could see everything we wanted especially the sharks that we... More

I was pleasantly surprised to see such a wide range of sea life. They had everything, lovely set and presented well. The Sharks, fish, insects, frogs etc etc was never hidden always visible. Walking on top of the tank as you enter feels surreal. The Forrest inside is set perfectly and it's a lovely day out, we was there for... More

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.
