    Visit: SEA LIFE London Aquarium, County Hall Westminster Bridge Road County Hall, London SE1 7PB England

    The Sea Life London Aquarium is home to one of Europe's largest collections of global marine life.

    Join one of our Behind the Scenes Tours to dip into areas normally out-of-bounds to the public and team up with our specialist aquarists to learn more about our aquarium and the creatures who live here! 

    Behind the Scene Tours are  full of adventure learning about how we care for all creatures right through from our stealthy sharks to snapping turtles! 

    After you finish you behind the scenes tour continue exploring and you will find up to 400 species of sea life, including sharks, eels, stingrays, clownfish (like Nemo!) and turtles, across 50 living displays. The Sea Life experience takes you on an interactive journey that includes supervised feeding times and optional touch pools.

    The mysterious Sea Life London Aquarium experience is spread over three floors and starts by taking a submarine-style elevator to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. Next, take a walk through the stunning glass tunnel underneath a tropical ocean. There is plenty of interaction along the way, from diving displays to optional touch pools and discovery zones. Other species you can see include green turtles, seahorses, octopus, zebra sharks and the ever-popular clown fish.

    Get closer to some of the world’s biggest creepy crawlies in new interactive displays that allows 360° views of the most infamous jungle inhabitants in new Rainforest Adventure!

    We saw the shark feeding and went on the "behind the scenes" tour with a member of the staff named Jake. He was very nice and had lots of information. He made the tour very enjoyable with many fish puns. Thanks Jake! My friends and I spent about 4 hours there without realizing,

    Well, what a great wake up call that was. Those poor penguins kept in such a tiny box. The depression and resignation in those poor animals' eyes. I blame myself for exposing my children to this. It was a hard watch. I'm glad I woke up to the horrors of animal exploitation. All

    Hi Andrea M, Thank you for taking the time to share some feedback regarding the penguin enclosure. The enclosure was designed with the help of professional animal keepers and independent vets. Please be rest assure that the enclosure is suitable for these wonderful creatures that we care for. In addition, a baby chick has recently been born. Penguins have very specific needs and high standards, and therefore they will only breed if they are content with their surroundings. Please rest assure that animal welfare is of utmost importance to us. We would invite you to email into us at sllondon@merlinentertainments.biz, referencing this review, so we can discuss your feedback regarding this. Kind Regards, Luke Product Excellence SEA LIFE London Aquarium | County Hall | Westminster Bridge Road | SE1 7PB

    We spend a few hours here last week, it is simply fantastic! We visited on Haloween and were given a behind the scenes tour by 2 witches! Our children loved it! The staff were all fantastic and very helpful. I'd highly recommend the facilities in Central London as a place of

    I had a whole afternoon and was nearby so I decided to come along. When booking online I noticed the VIP as an extra which was really reasonably priced. I had some time before the tour so stuck around next to the rays. I unfortunately can’t remember her name (Thurs 03/10 @16.00)

    We visited as a family of 7 for my sons Birthday. I booked the VIP tickets for my son and I, so that we could arrive a little earlier than the rest of the family and meet up after our behind the scenes tour. The aquarium is massive and we spent 3 hours there, including the
