Fodor's Review

The curved, colonnaded, neoclassical former County Hall that once housed London's municipal government is now home to a superb three-level aquarium where you can walk above sharks and stingrays and view more than 500 other aquatic species, both common and rare. There are also hands-on displays. It's not the biggest aquarium you've ever seen, but the educational exhibits are particularly well arranged, with 14 zones for different oceans, water environments, and climates, ranging from a stunning coral reef to the Antarctic to a rain forest. Regular feeding times and free talks are offered throughout the day. There are also special "experiences" that include behind-the-scenes tours, snorkeling with sharks, or sea turtle feeding at an extra charge. Admission is by time slot, but for an additional £3 you can purchase flexible priority-entry tickets that also avoid the long lines.
