I have always loved aquariums, even before having children. And I have enjoyed them even more since having Moozles and Dubz. I remember Husband and I taking Moozles to the Sea Life London Aquarium for her first birthday. It was such a special day and we have been to the aquarium several times in the past few years. So we were thrilled to visit today to see the new Penguin Point which had just opened yesterday.
Sea Life London’s new penguin enclosure is bigger and better than before. The best part of the enclosure is that visitors can get really close to the penguins. There is an icy bit where you can see the Gentoo penguins waddling around. We also saw them getting fed. There is also another bit where you can see the penguins jumping into the water and swimming around. This was our favourite part. Moozles and especially Dubz were mesmerized by the underwater swimming.
If you are planning a visit to Sea Life London, you can buy tickets online for as little as £19.50 per adult (children under the age of three enter for free). If you travel by train, there are often two-for-one deals. Or you can save money by purchasing a combination ticket (for example, you could get tickets for Sea Life London, Shrek’s Adventure and the London Eye – all which are located next to one another).
My photos don’t look amazing because Sea Life London is kept dark. But have a look at my vlog below to see some lovely footage of the penguins diving and swimming, as well as the other beautiful fish and sea life found at the aquarium. I didn’t get any video of the sharks or rays, but they are so much more impressive in real life. So if you live in/near London, go to Sea Life London Aquarium for a day of oohs and ahhhs and fun family time.
