I was very excited at the beginning of the trip as I had heard lots about a tunnel..to my... More

For the £23 i paid, i did find it rather a lot, considering that it was incredibly packed, which wasnt helped by the narrow passageways. I did enjoy the sharks and turtle however I believe that Sealife has lost its spark. The interior is rather tatty with bits of paint coming off (especially in the antartic section). The poor penguins-... More

This aquarium beat my expectations before I'd even paid for my ticket. The atmosphere created from start to finish was magical with the walls and floor being so detailed and sea themed. The range of sea life was excellent and made a perfect combination of fun and education. I visited the Aquarium on a Friday and was pleasantly surprised that... More

Enjoyed visit, a bit of a que to get tickets, and very bright lights shining in our face when Queing. At the beginning of attraction you had to walk on glass floor with sharks swimming underneath, wasn't to keen on this, got a bit freaked out.

This was a fun and fab walk around experience where we also got to touch a few sea life critters such as starfish. I love anything Eco and environmental and overall this was great. One thing that annoyed me though was the waste that must be created by printing off everyone's pictures regardless whether they buy them or not, which... More

Way too crowded and hot. Lots of bottle necks for the crowds to get stuck. We went on a Saturday afternoon.

it is the first time that I visit an underground aquarium... You start your trip at -2 floor.... The outcome ? If you scare at crowded or small places do not dare this challenge ! The Serling is at 2.5 m almost, the rooms with the fish are small, the aquariums are small, some of the corridors from room to... More

To be honest I have enjoyed Aquarium in the London zoo more, then in here. I would like to say at first that price we pay for a 2 adult and 2 children is to high for what we expected to see. Secondly , they let far too many people in and its almost impossible to see anything... waste of... More

We took our 16 month old to the Aquarium having booked on line for priority entrance. The price of tickets was steep £47 -this is with the few pounds you save booking online. The priority entrance was good as you really do beat the queue. The whole venue, from the minute you enter, queue and walk around is narrow. It... 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.
