Overview

Meet the enigmatic inhabitants of the underwater at ZSL London Zoo's Aquarium, situated on the northern corner of Regent's Park. London Zoo gave the world its first public aquarium in 1853, the current one being built in 1924 and inaugurated by King George V and Queen Mary. Actively involved in several conservation and breeding projects, the aquarium houses some of the rarest and most exotic species of aquatic creatures from different parts of the world. The well-laid out aquarium is divided into three halls, each one a separate eco-system, containing freshwater fish, coral reefs and endangered species respectively. An individually large tank contains giant fish like Catfish, Tambaqui and Pirapitinga that were rescued from untrained owners and are now looked after by the zookeepers. Their website is quite informative for those who want to know more about their collection. You can also call ahead on +44 (0)844 225 1826 for any other inquiries.
