What will we see on a trip to SEA LIFE London?SEA LIFE London is home to over 7,000 animals, including Green Sea Turtles, Gentoo Penguins, plus different species of sharks, rays, jellyfish, and other fish (both saltwater and freshwater). With themed large tanks including an Ocean Tunnel, a shipwreck scene, fish from the River Thames, and Nemo’s coral reef, there’s a lot to discover. Guests can also handle some animals in the rockpool exhibit, listen to a talk from an expert member of staff, or take a Behind the Scenes tour to learn all about the inner workings of an aquarium.
Can we feed the fish?Guests are asked not to feed the fish! Their diet is carefully monitored by the staff to make sure all the species in the aquarium are healthy and happy. There are feedings daily which visitors can watch, these vary so you should check with the ticket desk or a member of staff on arrival to see what’s on that day. You can get up close and personal with various creatures in the rockpool exhibit. More intrepid visitors can book a Snorkel with Sharks experience, where they’ll be able to snorkel with Sand Tiger Sharks, Black Tip Reef Sharks, and Nurse Sharks!
What age group is SEA LIFE designed for?The SEA LIFE Center in London is designed to be enjoyed by families with children aged between 4 and 10, but it can be enjoyed by guests of all ages! Most exhibits can be easily viewed by smaller children, with some extra viewing bubbles for children in the tunnels in Penguin Point, and staff members are on hand throughout the exhibits to answer questions from curious visitors. Please note that children under the age of 3 can visit SEA LIFE London free of charge, and visitors under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult. The attraction is also accessible by visitors using strollers.
How long should I plan for my visit?Most visitors spend around 2 hours in the aquarium, but there isn’t a time limit so enjoy the exhibits for as long as you like! Visitors with small children may want to go a little slower, and those who want to see specific feedings and talks might also find themselves spending closer to 3 hours inside.
