Fishy Activities and Hotels Around London

By Steve Alexander

Whatever your favourite aquatic creature, you’ll be able to see it at the amazing Sealife Aquarium in London. The centre is home to numerous species of shark, including sand tiger sharks, black tip reef sharks, bowmouth guitar sharks and hammerhead sharks. If you prefer your sea creatures smaller and cuter, you’ll love the schools of brightly coloured clownfish. Anyone looking for top hotels in London whilst enjoying fishy activities should check out Hotels4u.

Or who could fail to be charmed by the fascinating seahorses, the unique creatures which have taken over 40 million years to evolve, adapting perfectly to their environment? Rising to the surface every five hours or so to breathe, there are also green sea turtles, the graceful creatures that can be seen drifting through the subtropical and tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Housed in a meticulously created, icy home, the London Sealife Aquarium is also home to a colony of Gentoo penguins. The Cuban crocodiles are also well-worth seeing. These are the most aggressive and intelligent of their species in the world, but sadly, they’re also the most endangered, having been hunted almost to extinction for their beautiful, lustrous skin.

Many people staying in London are surprised to learn that the Sealife centre isn’t the city’s only aquarium. Open to the public since 1853, London Zoo was the first institution in the world to establish an aquarium. Vital research and conservation projects are carried out at the aquarium, including the world’s largest seahorse breeding programme and conservation programmes as far-reaching as the Philippines and as local as the Thames Estuary.

Many people who buy creatures like catfish, tambaqui and pirapitinga for their home fishtanks find that they’re unable to care for the fish when they grow larger, and their pets end up finding a home in the ZSL Big Fish Tank. Therefore the zoo is very keen on fish rescue. Anyone with a passion for fish has a range of top accommodation in London to choose from.
