SEA LIFE London Aquarium is launching exclusive Behind the Scenes Tours during this year’s Easter break.
The South Bank attraction opens its doors to give visitors the chance to discover what goes on behind the scenes.
Tours will take place from Saturday, April 2, and they will give guests the chance to learn about the work of the aquarium’s expert aquarists, including how they care for thousands of different species.
The tours will last 30 minutes and will take place every hour, during which guests will discover how the aquarium is run, current breeding initiatives and SEA LIFE’s global efforts to protect the oceans and its inhabitants from the threat of problems such as climate change.
Tickets for the Behind the Scenes Tours are on sale and advance booking is essential.
