The London Aquarium is situated in the three basement floors of the old [County Hall]?, near the London Eye. There's a car filled with fish in the foyer! It has a varied collection of fish based on different geographic areas. The most impressive displays are the two storey Atlantic and Pacific tanks, but there are also areas set up to simulate a mangrove swamp, a rainforest, a coral reef and a beach, and lots of others.

There are also petting tanks, whose fish you can stroke. The rays in particular seemed very friendly.

The fish all seem to be happy and healthy, and have plenty of space to swim about in.

Visit on a weekday if you can; the last time I went (a Sunday afternoon) it was very full and looking at the fish properly was difficult.
