Great for the family! A lot of sea creatures for kids to be familiar with. The aquariums are gigantic! The virtual reality show is a must!

Went today with my husband and 3yr old. Whilst I do think overall the sea life centre in Birmingham is better, we still had an enjoyable time and my 3 yr old loved it-especially the giant catfish. However what I was really impressed with was the shark snorkel experience I had booked for my husbands birthday. I wish I had... More

I visited with family and we had an amazing experience. My little cousin who is 5 really had a wonderful time seeing and reading about his favourite sea animals. It is quite the experience for children as they are allowed to touch the star fish and other animals whilst learning about them (adults too), making it very educational and interactive.... More

It's a good place yet not very huge as you may think it is The Fish tunnel where you walk in a tube and fish surrounds you is short There were 3D photographing stations but for so reason not working that day , but even that I paid the full ticket I did get that option

Me, my boyfriend and his two children visited here on a Saturday afternoon. We loved it, there's plenty to see and there's some cool areas of the aquarium that they haven't got at other Sealifes that we've been to previously. We also bought 2 packets of Cadbury buttons with the Merlin 2for1 offer on the side which we used for... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
