Visited the Sealife Aquarium, don't be fooled by the short queues outside, it is a CON-TRICK to get you into the centre, when it has taken only 15 mins to get to the door, it is another 45 mins to get to the Tills as the queue winds it's way around the inside ( unbelievable). Once inside you are stuck... More

We were collecting our Merlin Passes and were astonished to discover that although priority entry to all of the attractions it doesnt include collecting the passes so we had to join the longest line there. This was not made clear when we bought our passes and I had very carefully read the terms and conditions as I was heavily pregnant,... More

We visited as a small group of adults one Saturday in the summer holidays so it was very busy with lots of children from those too young to appreciate it to those old enough to race past the amazing sea creatures and leave their frazzled parents behind! There was such a lot to see set out in areas of the... More

Visited today and it was really busy with lots of people as expected in this peak time of season. I thought the lighting in the corridors were too dark and my friend who is short sighted, found it difficult to walk along and it being busy didn't help. Although we both enjoyed looking at the animals - I feel for... More

went t the sea life aquarium on saturday, expected it to be busy so joined the queue and waited 60 minutes, once purchased tickets was then obliged to have staged picture taken, once inside the aquarium it became obvious that the queue was caused by the photo opportunity, the aquarium itself was very good, the fish were well looked after...

Make an effort and go very early, it is really worth it. We arrived at 9:15 and there was already a small queue, but inside we felt like on a private self tour. Fantastic. We loved the pidgeons especially.

Book online via EDF website and you can avail good discounts and they have combi offers which offers Sea Life, Madame Tussauds, London Eye and London Dungeon altogether or in pairs or trios etc. Sea Life is a medium-sized aquarium spread in 3 levels offering a lot of sea life. Penguin pen offers a close view of the penguins but... More

bought ticket as a package with London Eye from the official website, highly recommend to do so, saving you hours queuing and also a few pounds. Very average of everything, not many choices and overall a bit old inter structure. Not many species to see compare to other big cities in the world. But kids will never getting tired to... More

Visited this attraction today (19/8/14) expecting the worse based on some of the reviews, but surprisingly it was good. Don't visit this attraction unless you have a 241 or a half price voucher. We entered for half the adult price for £11.10 each. The attraction is not worth the full price of £22.20. Guide books are £3.50 for one or... More
