Summer Abroad with Kids :: London SeaLife Aquarium

July 7, 2016
In the summer of 2016 our family set off to spend 8 weeks in London. We would explore the city and live like locals, renting a flat in Westminster. This was a far cry from our beach home in Florida and took a little adjusting to. We thrived in our new home away from home and had a jolly good time with many adventures along the way. This post is one installment in my series: Summer Abroad {with Kids}.
London Sea Life Aquarium
My kids love aquariums, since we don’t have one in Jacksonville we try to visit the aquarium in any city we go to, and London was no exception. It was a rainy afternoon last week when we stopped by the London Sea Life Aquarium for a visit.

The first thing you notice when you visit the London Sea Life Aquarium is how dark it is. It took a little while for my eyes to adjust, but once they did you realized that the darkness made it possible to appreciate the sea life so much more. The water seemed to glow in all the tanks as you moved throughout the aquarium.

The exhibits at the aquarium were interesting and some of them were even interactive. The kids had a great time exploring and learning about all the different fish and habitats around London.
I’d say you need a few hours to make your way through the entire aquarium. There are different tours and behind the scene activities you can pay extra for, but we choose not to. Everyone had a great afternoon exploring the aquarium and I’m glad we went.
Thank you London Sea Life Aquarium for giving us complimentary tickets in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
