Great place to visit for the kids, loads to see and learn about and interesting for all ages, lots of different sea life to learn about and all packed in to the venue. Go early to avoid the queues.

Although I did somewhat enjoy my visit, it was spoilt by how busy it was. There should be limitations to how many people are aloud to be inside at once as it massively effects the enjoyment of your visit. There is far too many people in there at one time but admittedly I did go on a Saturday, but why... More

Nice place with plenty to see, a lot like most other aquariums around the world. Make sure you get the 2-1 deal which can be found online. I believe you just need to print out a voucher and show a valid train ticket for the one with National Rail. I wouldn't pay £25 each for this but £12.50 is about... More

Went with auntie and myself (30s and 40s). Visited in October, during the week. Not busy at all. Prices are a little steep but guess it's an attraction that you would not really make regular visits to, so did the combination ticket - that way we could visit the London eye and givw our feet a break after pottering around...

I wouldn't recommend this purely for adults. I visited with a girl friend (both in our 30's), as neither of us had been before and we thought it would make for a good visit. Quite crowded and you end up just circling the same large tank and effectively seeing what's inside but from different levels / views. I was very... More

London aquarium is my favourite place in the world and that's saying a lot seeing as I've only been twice, and I have been to Disney world. I would almost buy a Merlin Pass so I could have an excuse to go all the time. It's £20 (off peak) to go ALL DAY. If you start early that is. You... More

We visited in Saturday with my 2 year old Daughter. We booked tickets through BA with our air miles points. Getting our tickets was pretty fast. I asked for a map of the aquarium but they said they didn't have maps. Strange as it would of been good to know how much of the aquarium we had covered & how... More

We had a late morning Saturday pass waited in line for our pre purchased tickets 15 minutes and they funneled past a series of viewing areas many positioned low...great for young kids but it was nearly impossible to get a good viewing for us or our 1 year old due to the number of people crowding past. A large shark... 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.
