went here for my birthday weekend trip to London with my boyfriend and this is where he really wanted to visit. The first day we attempted to go it was just too busy so the worker told us to come back the next morning, which we did and was in within 20 minutes. The aquarium is good, I visited here... More

Below average and not worth the money you will pay to visit the attraction. First of all this is mainly for the children. There are some big size aquarium with some sea lives in it. Hardly the tour will take 1 hour for you to complete. And you will be disappointed at what you will get for the price. My... More

What really disturbed me the most was the commercial atmosphere of the aquarium... Sure, this is not a non-profit operation, but 3 different spots to have your picture taken (including one where they photoshop you on the back of a turtle - a fantastic message to send to visitors !!), multiple places to buy food and at the same time...

Penguins! Giant Turtles! Massive Sharks! its not boring! Its also very unexpected. My little sister and I had such a fun day, we didn't leave ourselves enough time to go round everything though so we left half way through for afternoon tea and were told that we could come back later on in the day to finish off, which we...

We made our way around the aquarium reasonably quicky. Although we were impressed with how they have used the space available, it became a little repetitive when we saw the same tank from four different angles. The activities are very much geared towards younger visitors, so we didn't spend any time at those. This is probably very good by London... More

For me it was very interesting experience (OMG, those tanks with sharks!), although it's a bit overpriced.

We went to London using National Express Coaches which has a 2 for 1 offer with the aquarium. After 4hrs travelling and an eternity in the queue, we got there to find out we where apparently missing some voucher thing, the staff wouldn't give it to us to fill in there and then as you apparently have to print it...

This was a fun day trip if you have nothing else to do. They even have penguins, which I thought was really cool and the price is not too bad (I can't quite remember but I think it was under 15 pounds).

It was crowded, a lot of babies (why go there with a kid who doesn`t understand what is going on). The tanks ar not very big or diverse.

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.
