Attraction Information

Life under the Sea really is better at SEA LIFE London Aquarium where you can come face-to-face with over 10,000 sea creatures.

The Aquarium experience starts with an unnerving Shark Walk, where just below the glass at your feet swim these magnificent fish. Down in the cold Atlantic Depths you’ll find even more mysterious creatures such as an octopus and sand eel. The Tidal Reach will make you think differently about the life on British shores, and the Ray lagoon ripples with activity.

In the Ocean tunnel you’ll see giant green sea turtles swimming above you, and the world’s smallest hammerhead shark. On dry land there’s a colony of Gentoo penguins and you can meet an augmented reality Polar Bear in Frozen Planet.

There’s more under than sea than just Dory and Nemo!
