Went to the Sea Life, London on a rainy Saturday so naturally it was heaving which did not help. I felt that the place was cramped and did not have the range of displays I would expect for the main aquarium of a major tourist city such as London. At £21 a pop not exactly a cheap option either. I... More

Visited on 19/10/14, pushing my friend around in a wheelchair. The place was a lot smaller than we expected and we assumed only moderately crowded for October. It was virtually impossible to get near the displays with my friend in her wheelchair due to people crowding around the displays. There were not enough staff on hand, the place was very... More

Recently visited Sea Life and it was great. I really liked the fact that once the ticket was brought you could come and go as you please for the rest of the day. We did half, then went to the London Dungeon, then came back and did the 2nd half. There were so many different species to see and all... More

The aquarium is relatively small compared to other SeaLife sites and penguins "jail" is a total shame. If you are not about sharks and stingrays, better visit London Zoo - it has great sea life collection.

We went here in the summer, 5 adults and 5 children. There was plenty to see, and as we had pre bought tickets we didn't have to queue. It was very busy though, as it was the summer holidays but it was still a great day out, it's in a fab location and the staff were very helpful

Much better and bigger than other sealife aquariums visited and there is a lot to see and various displays rather than just fish like other aquariums. No need to get the priority entrance tickets, standard line moves really quickly! I would say it was very expensive but we had half price tickets so very good for what we paid. Wasn't... More

I didn't have many expectation and went there just as a company to my 13 old son but I actually enjoyed! It was a very beautiful experience.

Only missed the octopus which hid in a vase and the sleeping penguins. But everything else was fantastic. Lots of exotic and unique animals. Some I've only seen on animal planet. Excellent educational experience.
