With over 500 species from every part of the world, 14 themed zones over three floors,  65 displays with 30 species of plants and foliage, and thousands of creatures in more than 2 million litres of water, Sea Life London Aquarium is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of global marine life.

Shark-lovers won’t be disappointed – the aquarium houses more than 40 sharks from 12 different species. Interactive feeding, diving displays and touch pools mean every visit will bring new surprises – and an amazing opportunity to learn about the wonderful creatures of the deep. Working with British Antarctic Survey,

Sea Life London Aquarium has also created an area featuring a family of Gentoo Penguins, transporting guests to a research station in the coldest and most inhospitable place on earth. Visitors can journey through an icy landscape full of interactive features – from freezing touch pools to looking at the world through snow goggles.

In the penguin viewing ice cave visitors get a direct window into the life of the penguins as they dive beneath the water and play in a carefully created icy habitat.
