SEA LIFE London Aquarium

Located on the South Bank area of London under the shadow of the London Eye, the London Aquarium is home to one of Europe’s largest collections of global marine life.  Go on a journey along the Great Oceanic Conveyor and meet the aquarium’s residents – from the colourful, to the dull, to the downright freaky!

Spread over three floors, the attraction begins with a submarine style lift plunging to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.  Stroll through the glass tunnel walkway directly underneath a teeming Tropical Ocean!  You will get the opportunity to feed the stingrays, hold a crab and get to know the rock pool creatures during your visit.  It’s an interactive aquatic experience!

Stars of the aquarium include green turtles, seahorses, octopus, zebra sharks and clown-fish!  Watch ominous looking sharks swim beneath your feet from a suspended glass platform in the Pacific Zone – the deepest and darkest part of the visit.  Travel to the frozen extremities of the Antarctic and check out what life is like for a family of real Gentoo Penguins!

Sea Dragon Kingdom

A magical Sea Dragon Kingdom has opened at SEA LIFE London Aquarium!  Inviting visitors to explore a charming new themed zone, Sea Dragon Kingdom will take guests into the world of these mystical sea creatures.  Spot Weedy Sea Dragons, the curious alligator pipefish and colourful yellow seahorses.

Little explorers can venture into the lost temple to watch these wonderful creatures while learning about their lives and homes.

Beware of Claws

CLAWS will bring together a spectacular collection of the “B-movie monsters” of the marine world, from the gigantic Japanese Spider crab (which can grow to 12 feet long) and the colourful Rainbow crab to the humble blue lobster (they only go pink if they’re cooked!).  Built like miniature armoured tanks, these powerful crusty creatures of the deep are natural warriors and guests can inspect them at close quarters in a newly themed area featuring quirky displays designed to resemble giant crabs.

A mechanical model shows the workings of a crab’s claw and interactive features enable guests to feel the textures of their shells.  Specially created ‘B-Movie’ style displays add to the fun, including low and pop-up windows allowing visitors to examine these alien like animals from every angle.  Add in fun, informative graphics and vibrant theming and you have a monster new addition to one of London’s most popular attractions.

Frozen Planet: Face to Face

Explore the magical polar ice world featured in Frozen Planet as part of this special Easter feature opening on March 25th.  Learn more about the icy wilderness and spectacular polar landscapes that polar bears and killer whales call home.

FAQ’s

Will the tour pick-up from my hotel?

Not unless you are staying at a hotel that is a designated pick-up (you will see options for these before you pay).  This is because of Government actions to help prevent pollution, no tour operators have been allowed to make individual hotel pick-ups since 1st April 2017.

Are there toilets on the coaches?

Some coaches have toilets, some do not, but on all tours there are regular comfort stops of no longer than 2 hours apart, plus all places visited have toilets on site.

Will we have time for a full lunch stop whilst on tour?

Unless you book a tour that includes a specific lunch stop then no.  Most tours are targeted at seeing as much as possible in one day and do not have time for a full stop.  There are options to buy food and snacks at all sites visited, but these can be expensive and most people prefer to bring food and drink with them.  Supermarkets, e.g. Tesco Express offer excellent and great value, pre-prepared food that is ideal for this.  Here is a store finder link.

Will the tour return to for example London at the time stated or can it be late?

Most tours return at the expected time, but this is always subject to traffic and it is possible there could be a delay and so it is always wise to allow plenty of spare time if you are planning on booking theatre shows, trains or flights etc. after your tour.

What clothes should I wear?

It is always wise to check the weather forecast before setting out.  It is good to plan in case of rain, with perhaps a shower coat and umbrella.  There will likely be quite a bit of walking on tours and comfy shoes are a must and if any of the tour is on grass e.g. Stonehenge Inner Circle tours then waterproof shoes are sensible.  It is often colder out of London than in London particularly if windy and a jumper or fleece in summer are wise and a warm coat in winter.

If visiting London how much time will it take to see all the main sites, will we have time for more than one out of London tour if we only have a week? How long in advance should I book tours?

It is a common mistake that people think it may take six days to see London and only allow a day for out of London tours.  However there is so much to see out of London that four days to go out of London will be an amazing experience to see maybe all these locations, Dover, Canterbury, Leeds Castle, Hampton Court, Windsor, Winchester, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath, Stratford, Oxford and Warwick.

There are excellent day tours of London that see all of the main attractions in one day and then perhaps allow a further two days to see the Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Tour and other London attractions not included on the main tours and do not forget to book your show/theatre tickets well in advance too.

These are all very popular tours, most sell out well in advance and it is wise to book your tours, theatre and attractions several months in advance and you will find good planning in advance will optimise your holiday.

Is it better value to tour sites of London and out of London sites on our own, perhaps hiring a car?

No, fixed tours of both London and out of London are much better value than visiting sites individually and you will find going individually entrance costs alone will add up to more than the fixed tours, even before you factor in travel costs.

Do tours pick-up from any of the London airports?

Sorry no tours depart or return from any UK airports.  There are however excellent rapid express trains for example the Heathrow Express.

Can you help me find a discounted best value hotel? Plus theatre/shows and other attractions?

Yes we certainly can and here are some useful links.
