Discover incredible
Marine Life

The SEA LIFE London Aquarium is South Bank’s very own world-class aquatic centre.

With everything from a face-to-face encounter with sharks to Gentoo Penguins in an ice adventure, SEA LIFE London Aquarium is a great day out for school visits, a birthday outing or simply to enjoy exploring marine life.

Over 500 aquatic creatures reside at SEA LIFE with many either on the endangered list or have been rescued and cannot be released into the wild or have been born and bred as part of our conservation projects

Centrally located opposite Coca-Cola London Eye, the Aquarium counts Shrek's Adventure! London and The London Dungeon as neighbours ensuring that there's plenty to keep the family entertained from start to finish.
