    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!

    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

    We really enjoyed our visit to Sea Life London, There was a lot to see and they have done a nice job with the signage explaining each tank. The entrance area had a see-through floor where you walked over a shark tank, which was very cool. They had a nice variety of creatures,

    Jake our behind the scenes guide was excellent and kept us and the kids interested. Great day out with 3 young kids from 7 to 3 years old. They were not bored at any stage and loved the sharks being fed. Luckily we brought food for a picnic as there is nowhere to have lunch

    Hi Kavanagh M, Thank you for your JAW-some review regarding your visit to SEA LIFE London. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed making some amazing discoveries during your visit, particularly finding the Behind the Scenes tour done by our SEA LIFE London Ranger (staff member) Jake EEL-ley FIN-tastic! That's crabulous to hear! Please rest assure that I'll be passing on your wonderful feedback onto the relevant people. I'm sorry if you felt slightly concerned about there not being a certain place to have lunch. We do find that our explorers (guests) mainly like to freely roam the attraction, although we do appreciate any feedback given in terms of how we can look into improving the overall experience for our explorers. It's wonderful to hear that your younger explorers particularly enjoyed seeing the JAW-some sharks like Bungle being fed. Did you know that sharks mainly eat at night time, and their diet does consist of eating squid?! Yummy! Thank you once again for your review, and we hope that you'll swim by again in the future!
