    The London Aquarium is located right next to London Eye. And there are many many MANY tourists. It was so crowded - a bit annoying. But it's a nice aquarium, especially for kids!

    Right next to the London Eye, the aquarium is certainly worth a visit if you're with small children or have never been to an aquarium before. Not the most extensive aquarium in the world, I did like their underwater tunnel and the resident jellyfish.

    If you like sharks, there's a shark walk that can get you a pretty decent view of them. Suffice to say we were close enough that I was a little bit afraid, despite knowing they couldn't get me!

    An extensive aquarium with lots of different pools and tanks.The whale skeleton,the sunken Easter Island moai and the mangals are specially impressive. Fun for grown ups and kids...and double fun if you're crazy abut everything with fins like Filipe and Rita.

    One of my all time favourites, I always manage to leave pleased. In addition to a large variety of fish, rays and sharks there has also been a recent addition of the penguin display. Great for the individual and families. Giftshop can be found by the exit.

    This is one of the better aquariums I've been to. AThe shark tank in particular was very impressive and cool. When I showed people the pics they thought I went scuba diving...they could'nt believe they were from London not Carribean waters...

    I bought the cheap ticket for the London Eye and had a while to wait for my time slot, so I checked out the London Aquarium which is next door. It's a decent aquarium but not on par with the best in the world.

    One of the very few aquariums focussing on Sharks. A large variety of aquatic species is on view including the Penguins. Don't miss the Hurricane Simulator

    Enjoyed the Aquarium... space is limited in London.. so I didn't expect too much.. and wasn't disappointed as a result. Would I go again.. probably not. Once was enough.

If you are looking for a fun and educational activity for the family, consider visiting the London Aquarium, one of Europe’s largest collections of marine life. This aquarium contains thousands of creatures and 500 different species from all over the world. Make sure to spend the whole day so you can thoroughly enjoy the 14 different themed zones and 65 displays. The Shark Reef Encounter has a glass walkway that allows you to literally walk above these amazing creatures. The Penguin Experience allows you to fully appreciate the Antarctic habitat. There are freezing touch pools, snow goggles and a penguin viewing ice cave to explore. Also, do not forget to catch one of the many animal feeds or talks that are scheduled throughout the day.
