How do I book a time slot?

In our peak times (weekends, School Holidays and Bank Holidays), due to the numbers of visitors, every ticket holder must book in to a time slot to confirm entry on your chosen day.

If you're not sure how to do this - find your ticket type below for instructions.


Individual SEA LIFE London Aquarium tickets

If you have a ticket for SEA LIFE London Aquarium only (SEA LIFE London Aquarium Standard Tickets or Anytime) this ones for you!

When booking online through this website, or when booking these tickets in the aquarium at our kiosks, you will be requited to choose a time slot as part of the check out process. Therefore, you should already have a time slot and will be able to turn up at your allocated time slot for entry.

Please try to arrive promptly at the time stated on your ticket. We will try to accommodate and early/late arrivals but this cannot be guaranteed. 

But wait! I've bought a Anytime ticket - surely i don't need to have a time slot? CORRECT. If you are the lucky owner of these ticket types you can arrive at whatever time suits you. You're the special exception!
