Never been to London SeaLife and i can say i was impressed. Nice place to visit. I was excited to see the sharks and the penguins and also the whale skeleton (that was massive). A bad thing... i bought the tickets only and had to wait for an hour in gueue. I don't understand why and was not pleased with... More

No queues (midweek) staff really fun and friendly. Great attraction, well designed. Lots to see. There are various talks and feedings you can go along to. Great for adults and kids!

Well organised, even though you have to wait a long time to get your ticket and get in. The whole place is very child friendly with enough additional detail about the sea life to make it informative for adults too.

Lots of different species to look at, not just fish. Good shark enclosure that you walk over and look down on almost immediately after entering. Talks go on throughout the day. A bit pricey if you just visit the one attraction, try to use the combined ticket offer which includes the London Eye and Madame Tussauds, we regretted not taking... More

As sea lovers, myself and my boyfriend really enjoyed our trip to the aquarium. I would, however, recommend that anyone planning a trip here books online in advance as it works out a lot cheaper. We did this and got priority access which was great for skipping the long queue of people waiting to pay. Very impressive set up inside... More

Had a great Sunday afternoon with my 3 boys mum and sister in law, being a member at merlin card we did not have to queue, this is one of the many advantages of having a merlin card. We enjoyed looking at the sea animals, the sharks, the pinguins, the octopus, the crocodile, ray fish and so many other fish.... More

Me and my boyfriend have said we'd love to go to an aquarium for so long and whilst visiting London we thought why not now! The queue wasn't too big for us however took sooo long to go down and that was mainly through the inconsiderate staff members who found it more important to talk to one another rather than... More

Took the two grandchildren (12 and 8) and they both rated it as 'Fabulous'. The two adults enjoyed it too, even though it was very crowded (on a Sunday) and it was not always clear which way to go. More signposting would be helpful. I also found it frustrating that the names of the fish were not displayed. What is... More
