Sea Life London Aquarium

The Sea Life London Aquarium is on the ground floor of County Hall on the South Bank of the River Thames in central London, near the London Eye. It opened up in March 1997 as the London Aquarium and serves about one million guests each year. It is the biggest aquarium in London.

The aquarium shown three robotic fish designed by the computer science department at the University of Essex in 2005, . The species of fish were developed to be autonomous, swimming around and preventing hurdles like real fish. Their designer believed that he was trying to combine “the speed of tuna, acceleration of a pike, and the navigating skills of an eel.”

The aquarium launched a new penguin display, with 10 gentoo penguins transmitted from the Edinburgh Zoo, in May 2011. The aquarium was shifted to a unique place in County Hall due to the beginning of Shrek’s Adventure! London in 2015.
