We had pre-booked so was able to queue jump! Really good displays of marine life. So many varieties and lots interesting facts etc on display. We went during a school holiday and my only complaint was the huge amounts of people in there with pushchairs! Unfortunately the owners felt it was ok to block the walkways and stop others getting...

This aquarium is not worth half of what the ticket costs. When on the outside you assume that the aquarium is the large building with the columns, when in fact it's two floors underground with not so much to see. A few sharks, one turtles and one croc. The penguins have very little space and I kind of fill bad... More

Came here with my 6 year old this week and he loved it, and it wasn't busy at all. Would definitely recommend going mid week. The sharks we the best thing as they were quite big. We had our photos taken and cost £15. Did have some building works going on which we had to walk through and no warning... More

This is a very basic aquarium. For the price you pay it is not worth it. For little kids it would be good but £23 for adults is way to much !!

We went here with my partner on a Saturday afternoon. We had a 2 for 1 voucher and with that, I felt like it was worth it. However, I am not sure I would consider it if I would have to pay full price. The fish and other animals were cool and interesting, but for the whole experience, it's a... More

I know it's in London but this was very expensive and no different to any other Sea Life centre or aquarium, a fair bit of it you could see in a visit to your local aquatics shop so to be honest it all felt a bit been there, done that!

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.
