Adults pay child prices
Based in the heart of town within the County Hall site, on the popular South Bank of the Thames, SEA LIFE London houses one of the biggest displays of international marine life on the world. In terms of the SEA LIFE centres in the UK, it’s truly the jewel in the crown!
With more than two million litres of water on site, this attraction is home to thousands of creatures from the deep, and 500 plus species in all, and they come from across the world.
With sharks alone, for example, there are a dozen varied species and more than 40 to see.
Brave the glass walkway over a shoal of these fascinating animals and see black tip reef and brown sharks swimming just inches below your feet at the Shark Reef Encounter.
In all, there are some 14 themed zones spread across three floors. Plus you don’t just see the underwater creatures behind glass – you get to interact with them at touch pools, public feeding sessions and diving displays.
You can even take yourself to the unforgiving Antarctic, thanks to a joint effort with the British Antarctic Survey, called Ice Adventure. Travel through a freezing landscape, see the world through snow goggles and dip your hand in icy touch pools. There’s also an ice cave for seeing Gentoo Penguins.
Bear in mind that all visitors younger than 14 must have an adult aged 18 or older with them. Groups and school visits are welcomed at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium.
You’ll find the SEA LIFE London Aquarium right by the London Eye, across Westminster Bridge from Big Ben.
Nearest parking is at the Royal Festival Hall, or underground at Waterloo Station – and congestion charges apply from Monday to Friday. There are coach drop-off points nearby.
A large number of buses serve Waterloo and Westminster Bridge Road, a short walk away, including London sightseeing buses. Northern, Bakerloo and Jubilee Underground lines go through Waterloo.
