Visited on 2nd Sunday of easter hols with my 5 and 3 year old while my wife went to dungeons with my 8 year old (also great). As an attraction it ticks all the boxes, great exhibits and very interesting, if a little busy. We have Merlin annual passes so at least have the opportunity to return off peak. I... More

I wasn't very impressed with the London aquarium. If you have the chanse Barcelonas and Berlin's are much better. I had thiw feeling that it wasn't quite clean. On the other hand my daughter enjoyed stroking the starfish.

I visited here with my boyfriend on the Friday (11/04/14) as I had a half price voucher, so instead of paying £42.00 we paid £21.00. And I'm certainly glad we did... I'm not entirely sure whats going on with the place? It's a tad dull... I know aquariums aren't expectedly exciting, I just felt like there should of been more?... More

Pretty much as my title suggest really! I was with my 2 youngest and to be fair they enjoyed the visit, at their happiest when they seen the sharks! of which is only in one tank, if you wanted - you could walk through this attraction in 25-30mins and if you did it would work out quite costly. I thought... More

Ok, so we chose to go on a Saturday during the Easter break but the place was stupidly overcrowded leaving no possibility of spending any worthwhile time to enjoy the exhibits; most of which were nothing "exciting" you end up funnelling through small corridors, battling your way past inexcusably rude people who have forgotten all politeness it seems. They insist... More

We were not sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the shark area. The staff very knowledgable and seemed to enjoy the interaction. Although it was very busy it did not seem crowded and the queues for the exhibits were quite small

Having had a wonderful experience at the sealife centre in Hastings I decided to bring me 2 year old son here. I booked priority tickets online and when I saw the queue outside it confirmed this was the right decision. From there, however, things went downhill. I was sold a £3.50 guide book on the premise that it had activities... More

It could use some enhancement, yet it is very nice. Many species and games for little guys and older ones too! It's really fun. Many things to do and learn. The store however is not very good. I wanted more to do, but I can't say I didn't enjoy it. Having visited some other aquariums in my country, this was... More

I used to love this place a quaint traditional attraction, now it's been made over with plastic signs everywhere and utter naffness! And never in my life have I experienced an attraction where people are so rude!!!! You kind of... More

Visiting the London Aquarium has been on my wish list for some time. We went in the Easter holidays and luckily it was not busy otherwise I can imagine it would be very frustrating trying to see the star attractions like the sharks. The rays were amazing and very graceful. I did not realise there would be penguins to see... More
