It's beautiful atrium and fantastically curated exhibitions are a joy to behold.

    There is the vast and beautiful Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park which surrounds IWM London to enjoy a picnic in the sunshine (fingers crossed) or the IWM Café for a spot of lunch/ tea if the weather doesn't play ball.

  • Underwater Dads of the SEA

    This Father’s Day, SEA LIFE London is celebrating fathers of the underwater world, because it is not just the human dads who deserve the recognition!

    SEA LIFE London have scoured the oceans for the star dads of the sea from the most famous to the most caring - starting with Seahorses: the most famous dads in the animal kingdom. Bet you didn't know that they have a brooding pouch in which they can carry the females’ eggs until they hatch - some species can carry thousands of eggs at one time! The most caring of all is the Sea Catfish, who go hungry for their young for almost two months. They use their mouths as a nursery, holding both the eggs and the young once they hatch until they are ready for independence. 

    Celebrate these great underwater dads with your very own, human dad on a fun day out at SEA LIFE. You'll also have the opportunity to experience the brand new Ocean Invaders area and see thousands of beautiful jellyfish on display.
