Quickest Review: Not worth the price of admission. SEA LIFE pulls out all the stops within the first ten minutes of exploring the aquarium and doesn't offer much more afterwards. The entrance of walking over the glass-floor of the shark exhibit (don't get too excited, it's mostly nurse sharks and the odd black-tip reef shark) is exhilarating and the overhead glass walkway of the coral exhibit is stunning. However, these areas are quite cramped as it is and the current social distancing measures visitors are expected to maintain urge you to rush through these areas when they're the only real areas you want to soak in. The aquarium is small, especially for being a large attraction in one of the largest cities on earth. Exhibits are focused on varieties of aquatic and land(?) flora & fauna and sacrifice livable areas for the animals (although interesting, having a snake and leaf-cutter ants, among others, on exhibit at an aquarium is not why I paid the price of admission). This, in turn, provides very small viewing areas for the exhibits which become cramped and crowded often. The two largest viewing areas will be your lion's share of the tour as you will constantly be rotating around the cylinders, providing you a view from multiple levels, courteous, but tiresome. During my visit, there were numerous attractions that were either closed, informative (we understand that plastic is bad for the environment, there is no need to have multiple segments decrying it that could have been used as exhibits) or imaginary (AR and video segments that spanned entire areas [£30 to walk in and watch a television screen?]). The exhibit was enjoyable as aquariums are naturally soothing. In particular, the coral, jellyfish and penguin exhibits (in reference to my above statement concerning land fauna, penguins spend an inordinate amount of time in the water, so I understand their addition to the aquarium) were fun and vastly interesting. I recommend having a "human ticket" as the aquarium is heavily focused on family and school trips. Expect to spend around an hour and a half to two hours, tops, in the aquarium.GOOGLE REVIEW

Love this place. Bring my daughter every year. It's well laid out, reasonably priced for what's available and well managed. Very educational and fun for kids while still having enough to keep the adults entertained. Has the usual gift shop trap at the end of the journey but does come reasonably priced compared to others. Animals are well maintained, clean and fed well with attention to how they would feed naturally. You can watch this if you time it right and its good fun. Has a touch pool and educational staff too so kids learn but think their just doing something amazing. I dare you to not say 'wow' at least once!GOOGLE REVIEW

We managed to get a buy-one get half-price child ticket. It was absolutely worth the money spent and more! A really amazing display of different types of fish, all the tanks looked immaculate and the fish well cared for. Beautiful tank displays, loved all the concepts. Huge emphasis on saving our oceans which is important for children to learn. Sharks, turtles, piranhas, stingrays,so many seahorses and so much more! Including Coral Kingdom. A jungle section too and we got to touch a starfish! A large section dedicated to Jellyfish (my daughter is obsessed) so we had one very happy young lady! An Ice section with Penguins. Easy to find, right on the embankment! We hope to visit again soon!GOOGLE REVIEW

Amazing atmosphere. It is not as big as other aquariums I've visited but quite big considering that it is in central London, just next to the London Eye. My 2 years old daughter loved it and was super excited to explore the Sea Life, it took us a full 2 hours. Beautiful animals, properly looked after from the team. I recommend it, especially as a family-friendly experience. 👋👋😊 Thanks Sea Life team, see you soon.GOOGLE REVIEW

It Was our first time at Sea life and we had a great time. The aquarium was well presented and nicely laid out with informative pictures so you know what you are looking at. The penguins were a highlight as well and you have a little dome to peer through which was a nice touch but just mind your head getting inside it. They seemed to have many varieties and species that you never knew existed and was great to see them close up. The virtual reality simulator was a good addition and well worth paying for. Highly recommended to visit.GOOGLE REVIEW
