My husband took our daughters to go...
, Jun 2018
My husband took our daughters to go and see the Harry Potter show all the way from South Africa....and obviously the show was all they could wish for...so much so that they did not expect much from the trip to the aquarium mom booked for them...and were they surprised, what an experience! They really enjoyed it!
This was a nice thing to do that we hadn't yet done in London - I have seen better aquariums. The highlight for me was walking on glass over the shark tank and crouching down to look below the water line at the penguins dashing through it. A warning though - if, like me, you get a bit overwhelmed by children, then maybe try avoid the aquarium. Having said that, I think we went during school holidays. Its clearly a great thing to do as a family! Also, skipping the line was worth it.
The Aquarium was beautiful! We loved the exhibits! Sharks, rays, penguins, jellyfish - everything was so beautiful, and so informative. We could have stayed there all day watching the fish swim around. It's so peaceful!
Went with wife and 2yr old. Queues were short on non school holiday, so the skip the line tickets only saved 5 mins. Staff moved people into right queues.
A bit cramped to start with but the crowd thinned out, we enjoyed most of the areas, penguins were too cramped, but main tank was the highlight.
