Aquatic Design CentreDesign-led aquarium in centre of town.

Tucked away from the bustle of Oxford Street, lurks this fish-filled fantasia. If you need a break from the chaos of central London dive into this slick, chic, underwater paradise and wallow in over 300 tanks filled with an amazing range of marine, tropical and coldwater fish. Subdued lighting, interspersed with flashes of neon from some of the tanks’ more psychedelic inhabitants, create a calm, tranquil haven. With a strong design edge, this is a beautiful place to wander around, for free, if you’re looking for something just a little bit different in the centre of town.

Best for:
Tropical, marine and coldwater fish, tanks and tranquility.

Did you know?
Actor Keith Allen was once suspended in a tank at the Aquarium Design Centre.
