You will also get to meet the stars of Polar Adventure - our Gentoo Penguin Colony. Through Polar Adventure, SEA LIFE London is supporting the efforts of the charity Falklands Conservation.

From giant polar bears to an inquisitive orca whale, creatures from the Arctic will be brought to life using amazing state-of-the art Augmented Reality and 3D technology, which is set to take intrepid adventurer’s breath away.

Winter is here!

During the winter months, you will notice that the lights in our penguin zone will be in low light and the penguins may be settling in for a night’s sleep. This is to ensure we closely match the conditions found in the Southern Hemisphere – where Gentoo penguins are found. The variation in light cycles and temperature is designed to encourage their natural seasonal behaviour including a yearly moult, nesting, and breeding. At this time of year, that means the sun sets earlier at Penguin Point. 

Please be aware you may not be able to spot our penguins during your visit in the late afternoon sessions.
