This Easter, the SEA LIFE London Aquarium invites guests to explore an enchanting new themed zone, Sea Dragon Kingdom, to see the amazing new collection of mystical sea creatures hidden within. Visitors can spot dazzling Weedy Sea Dragons, the curious Alligator pipefish and colourful Yellow seahorses (from the 29th March 2015).
Mini explorers can venture into the lost temple and peer through the tangle of roots and vines to watch the magical inhabitants within. In between seeing the mesmerising Sea Dragons and their leaf-like camouflage, guests can learn interesting facts about these mystical creatures.
There’s also a whole aquarium to discover with thousands of sea creatures from rays to rare Green Sea Turtles, seven species of stunning shark in the Shark Reef Encounter display and a playful colony of Gentoo penguins in the chilly Ice Adventure area.

Visit the The London Aquarium, one of Europe's largest displays of aquatic life and home to up to 400 species in over 50 displays, from sharks, stingrays and clownfish, to moray eels, lionfish and sideways walking crabs. Relax, unwind and delve into the depths of the exciting and diverse underwater world at the London Aquarium...
The London Aquarium is the first attraction of its kind in the capital, and is one of Europe's largest exhibitions of global aquatic life, displayed in over 2 million litres of water. The London Aquarium combines education, relaxation and entertainment through a multi-sensory voyage of discovery through the rivers, lakes and oceans of the world.
Nowhere else in London can visitors come face-to-face with sharks, watch our piranhas at feeding time and see the rays up close as they come to the surface at the Ray Touch Pool.
Disabled Access: At the Aquarium, we have full disabled access with lifts to all levels. There are also disabled toilets available on every floor.
ALL NEW ICE ADVENTURE FEATURING GENTOO PENGUINS NOW OPEN
Travel to the frozen extremities of the Antarctic and experience life with a family of real Gentoo penguins at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium this spring. These acrobats of the penguin world are taking up residence in ICE ADVENTURE - a brand new, major themed experience that will transport guests to a research station deep in the Antarctic.
As the temperature drops visitors will journey through an icy landscape full of fun interactive features. Look at the world through snow goggles, run your hands along a wall of real ice or dip your hands into freezing touch pools. Guests can even get a taste of polar 'white out' training as they explore a recreation of a remote ice station complete with authentic equipment donated by leading science and research organisation British Antarctic Survey. When they arrive in the penguin viewing ice cave, visitors will get a direct window into the habitat of the magical Gentoo penguin, both above and below land. As they dive beneath the water and play in their carefully created new home complete with real ice, guests will discover the challenges of life in the most inhospitable landscape on earth and the dangers its inhabitants face. They will also be able to meet some other Antarctic dwellers - a trio of Japanese Spider Crabs.
