As we've visited & enjoyed a number of different aquariums around the country, we decided yesterday 3rd September to take our niece's into London for their birthday treat, for 4 children & 3 adults we were charged nearly £130!!! As soon as we had paid we ushered through into the "start of our journey" where we were then accosted into... More

Visited this Sea Life aquarium on Thursday 27th August. Queued for 20 minuets and get to the counter to be told had to queue somewhere else as this queue was only for pre booked tickets. started to queue in even bigger line to be told they didn't have the facilities to scan the 2 4 1 code from our phones....

Plenty of kids, so if you have any - bring them there! The place is thus quite loud and a lot to take even if your patient and especially if you expected to be able to actually admire the fish rather then squeeze through a mass of selfie-taking zombies. But to be fair: take the crowd out of the equation... More

We used 2 for 1 deal with South Eastern trains ie show train tickets and get in for half price. Still cost about £50 for 4 of us. Worth every penny. Spectacular aquarium. Sharks, penguins, loads of sea life spread over a large area. Walk through tunnel with them swimming overhead - massive fish including Rays. Good for all ages.... More

Absolutely rubbish. Would not recommend it to anyone. The kids got bored and everything was dull. Had to pay extra to see penguins. Definitely will NOT go again.

It was our second family visit to the London Aquarium. The first time was more than 10 years ago, only myself with my wife, and this time the whole family was there (with our 2 teen children). To be honest, is seemed as no improvement has taken place all these years between our two visits, and having had visited contemporary... More

We went as 2 adults, 3 y.o, 1 y.o & an OAP. Cost us £75 even though we pre-booked etc. I had always wondered how they could fit a 'world class' aquarium on the south bank. Now I know. Narrow walkways, tiny spaces, barely enough room to squeeze a single pram through at a time. We got in at 9.30am... More

I paid £47 to get in and that was with the 2 for 1 deal and still really disappointed, one main tank which you constantly walk round and not a lot else and the penguin enclosure is just cruel, they looked so miserable it actually made me feel ill. I'm all for conservation but can't help but think they would... 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.
