About London Aquarium[edit | edit source]
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 stroke friendly rays. At The London Aquarium we aim to encourage respect for nature through our fun and educational journey into the underwater world.
