Behind the Scenes Tours

SEA LIFE London Aquarium Behind the Scenes Tours

Go deep behind the scenes

There’s a lot going on beneath the surface at SEA LIFE London Aquarium and now you can team up with our expert aquarist guides to go deep behind the scenes and discover how we care for over 600 marine and fresh-water species.

You’ll have privileged access to the working areas usually closed to the public where you can learn about our extensive breeding, research and conservation programmes and see how the fish food is prepared!

So, if you want an even deeper experience, immerse yourself in our Behind the Scenes Tour.

Behind the Scenes Tours are 45 minutes long and are available Mon - Thurs at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm and Fri - Sun at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm and 4.30pm.

During the Summer period (Jul 20th - Sept 1st) there will be an additional Behind The Scenes Tour everyday at 5.30pm.
