London Aquarium
National Gallery National Gallery. London

Dive down deep beneath the Thames and submerge yourself in one of Europe's largest displays of aquatic life. Opposite Big Ben, the London Aquarium is the only place in the capital where you can come face-to-face with two-metre long sharks.

Also discover the world's most venomous fish, gaze at the mysterious seahorses and meet our frenzied piranhas. Friendly rays are waiting to be stroked, while those brave enough can even touch our starfish and crabs.

It is a collection of water tanks showing

around 350 species of fish. The aquarium includes three floors and 14 different zones (freshwater stream, Atlantic upper, rivers and ponds, Pacific upper, Indian Ocean, Atlantic lower, touch pool, temperate waters, Pacific lower, coral reef, invertebrates, tropical freshwater, mangrove and rainforest).

The aquarium has also displayed robotic fish from 2005.
