Things to do at SEA LIFE London aquarium, review

The SEA LIFE aquarium, in London is a great family-friendly attraction and it is much bigger than it looks from the outside. They have some really lovely unique experiences and you can spend at least two hours there, if not longer. It is located on the south bank of the River Thames alongside other Merlin entertainment attractions in London (such as the London Eye).

There is only one way around the aquarium,. There are plenty of tanks to stop at along the way and marvel at all the different species of fish. You start by walking over a glass floor with sharks swimming beneath your feet. They have lots of themed areas such as a large coral reef and a rainforest area with amphibians and insects. There are plenty of interactive displays including pretend piranhas that snap at you and jellyfish that pretend to sting you. The highlight is the Gentoo penguins. You can watch them swim down low or see them at ‘child’s eye level’ waddling around. They have a dome which pops you up inside their enclosure and if you’re lucky the penguins may wander over to have a look at you.

There is also an exhibition with polar bears and killer whales projected onto a wall and you can stand amongst them. Look out for the wall made of ice! Other things to see are a walk-through tunnel with fish swimming around and an interactive rock pool. They also have experiences that you can book on such as snorkelling with sharks and behind-the-scenes tours.
