For the very first time visitors can chill out with the resident Gentoo penguins, the third largest species of penguin in the world after the Emperor and Kings, as part of the After Dark experience. The feathered friends can be seen waddling around their cool enclosure and through an underwater viewing window where guests can observe them gracefully cutting through the water.
SEA LIFE After Dark allows visitors to encounter over 500 species of marine life at the London Aquarium in an adult-only environment (18+). The experience is ideal for a fun after work group activity or as an incentive for small teams.
On arrival visitors will enjoy a glass of prosecco and make their way over the Shark Walk; a glass walkway directly above the magnificent Pacific Reef display. Exploring the Aquarium visitors can marvel at the two giant sea turtles as they pass through the stunning Ocean Tunnel, sneak past the Cuban crocodiles in the tropical Rainforest area and play it cool with the penguins. Pop-up watering holes around the venue provide additional drinks visitors can purchase.
Guest experience advisors will be stationed at various points throughout the venue to answer questions and provide information on the conservation work undertaken by the SEA LIFE London Aquarium.
