Education and conservation
Sea Life London was originally the London Aquarium until a change in management in 2008 transformed it into an extraordinary venue to view and enjoy marine life. Sea Life London hosts over a million visitors each year and engages thousands of students to educate and create awareness on the issues that affect the oceans. They are actively engaged in conservation too particularly of whales, dolphins, sharks and turtles.
Sharks, jellyfish and more
The Aquarium is organized into 17 zones, each devoted to a specific marine habitat or animal group. Some of the world’s deadliest predators (read sharks) swim under your feet at Shark Walk where you get to walk on a glass window over the massive Pacific display. Tidal Reach is designated for jellyfish while Ray Lagoon is for rays. Dive Discovery boasts a replica of a Grey Whale’s ribcage that plays hosts to several species. The mesmerizing walk in the Ocean Tunnel is truly memorable. Kids will love Rockpool, where they get to touch starfishes and crabs, perhaps a sea anemone too.
They even have a zone devoted to the world’s favorite clownfish, Nemo! Now you know why visitors of all ages fall in love with this amazing place.
