Coral Kingdom

Explore the colourful coral reef in our Coral Kingdom zone

Discover the colourful coral reef...

A spectacle of colour is here at SEA LIFE London with the UK’s largest living coral reef in our Coral Kingdom zone.

From the moment you step into the dazzling underwater oasis, you will journey through the leafy green shallows of the Mangroves as the Coral Kingdom transitions between day and night.

Prepare to see regal tangs, cardinal fish, clownfish and many more swim through our 40ft long tank. Discover what it’s like for our creatures on the reef with our clown fish challenge as you weave, dive and shuffle your way through the reef just like our clownfish residents here.

Coral Reef

Coral might look like a rock or plant but it is actually a type of animal! From the same family as jellyfish and sea anemones, corals are made up of millions of individual polyps all growing on top of each other. 

Each of these polyps lives within a shell but sticks out little stinging tentacles to catch plankton in the current. Coral polyps share their shell with algae which provides them with most of their food using photosynthesis. In exchange, the coral offers the algae a safe house so they both get a good deal!

When corals are stressed by pollution, temperate or acidity changes, they spit out the algae from their shells. This is known as coral bleaching as it is the algae which give them colour and without it, they turn white. Coral cannot survive for long without this algae.
