Dinners at SEA LIFE London Aquarium

Dinner events are typically more formal and ideal for events where you may wish to entertain clients without a full party or disco atmosphere. The SEA LIFE London Aquarium is a unique and entertaining venue for any dinner party. The venue can hold 50-200 guests for this type of event and has plenty of great features to keep your guests entertained:

Glass shark walk on entrance

Enter the aquarium via a glass walkway with sharks swimming inches below your feet.

Watch a dive in the shark tank

Entertain your guests during the drinks reception and brand our dive team, the divers can go into the shark tank for 20 minutes and communicate with your guests via underwater whiteboards.

Spot turtles and stingrays

As guests are called through for dinner, they walk through a glass ocean tunnel where turtles and stingrays swim around them

The venue has been designed for events

  • Pin spot lighting for dining tables and LED lighting to wash the room for that dramatic effect

"The actual event was near perfect - The London Aquarium as a venue is so different and definitely has the 'wow' factor. The feedback I have received from everyone who attended has been ultra complimentary.

Thank you so much for your help over the past weeks - on the night all the staff were really helpful and professional. I would not hesitate to book another event at one of your other locations."
