G’day Everyone, Matt Elder of Family Bricks here. What is Sea Life London Aquarium UK like now it has reopened with covid 19 measures in place? Is it worth going, what has changed, what is the experience like etc.? We will cover this in the video and give our thoughts and firsthand experience as a family. We will do a full time lapse tour of Sea Life London Aquarium UK in about 10 minutes.
This video is bought to you bay Macatsim Holiday Homes in Margate and Broadstairs. Great for a week’s holiday or a weekend escape, being just over an hour east of London, UK. Treat yourself to amazing sunsets, a LEGO wall or great food. Visit www.macatsim.com and mention this Youtube video, we’ll will look after you.
We spent the day at Sea Life London Aquarium UK August 23rd, 2020 – 6 weeks after it reopened. So it has had some time to bed in the new corona virus safety guidelines and we’ll give you a sense of if Sea Life London Aquarium is worth visiting, and what it is like now.
To get to Sea Life London Aquarium you’ll most likely have to take public transport of some form. We took the overground and underground/tube so now you have to have face mask and the trains and train stations are signposted everywhere about this. We caught a 9am train on a Sunday morning so relatively empty and these shots give you a sense of that.
Is Sea Life London Aquarium worth it?
Absolutely! It seems that with lockdown and pretty much no tourists, numbers are limited and it’s a super nice experience. For the most part you don’t have people climbing all over you, social distancing is generally adhered to and staff do try to ensure it happens. LEGOLAND and Chessington World of Adventures, which Merlin Entertainment also owns, are the complete opposite of this, you wouldn’t even know social distancing is a thing – click link around the video to see what LEGOLAND is like
Pretty much most of the attraction is there, including the interactive ability to touch some of the sea creatures. Again other Merlin Entertainment attractions have these closed. That is the thing with this, you have a parent organization but each attraction seems to have their own intrepreation and implementation of covid – click link around the video to see Chessington World of Adventures and how their hands on interactive touch is closed.
We are Merlin Premium Annual Pass holders (standard ones don’t give access usually during school holidays). We are definitely going to try to come back in the next month or so – who knows how good it will last like this so take advantage while you can. Kids always remember the penguins and probably their favourite part of the day.

Thanks very much for watching. We are just going to let the video run with some other relaxing shots from Sea Life London Aquarium. At the moment with generally no tourists in London, visiting the castles and other attractions are fantastic days out (particularly if you get annual passes that let you into multiple attractions).
Like this one of Tower of London which houses the Crown Jewels. Normally during peak season you’d get 13,000 visitors a day, they are struggling to get 1,000 a day now, the place feels almost deserted.

We’ll put links to other London based attractions we’ve been to recently so you can consider going, or if you aren’t local, can watch the time lapse portion of the video and do a full tour of these attractions you might not otherwise see in less than 10 minutes.
That’s it from us here at Family Bricks, until next time when we talk about all things lifestyle.
