Great aquarium, one of the largest in Europe, spread across several floors. Just across from the Houses of Parliament and next to the London Eye, so lots more nearby for a full day out.
Sharks, rays, crocodiles, piranhas, turtles, jellyfish, plus all the other favourites and lots more.
Check the aquarium’s website for feeding times and daily talks.
