The Aquarium is home to over 500 species from all across the world, including 40 different sharks.

Guests are led through the building to visit over 65 different displays and 14 themed zones spaced out over 3 floors.

Visitors are taken on an interactive journey along the Great Oceanic Conveyor and have the opportunity to see literally thousands of sea creatures - held in over 2 million litres of water!

Throughout the day there are interactive public feedings, diving displays, and touch pools to help guests get as close as possible to the creatures held within.

What sort of marine life can you expect to see at the aquarium?

Countless species of fish, stingrays, seahorses, octopuses, sharks, lobsters, jellyfish, piranhas, penguins, crocodiles, turtles…and more!

The London Aquarium now is contained entirely within the magnificent County Hall building on the south bank of the River Thames next to the London Eye.

They're open 7 days a week, from 10:00 am - 19:00 (7:00 pm).

One of the VIP experiences of the aquarium is available in the shark exhibit.

You'll be able to watch them from above the water and from the viewing window below. Not many people see the gills on the underside of their bodies!
