Last Sunday we were fortunate enough to have a family day out in London thanks to 365tickets. We had the great pleasure of choosing the (gifted) tickets to The London Eye and The London Aquarium. We have wanted to take the monkeys to those two visitor attractions for a while. We're so grateful to have been given the chance!
We were sent an email from 365tickets (who provide global attraction tickets, with local expertise), which had to be printed and then exchanged for the attraction tickets at each venue. This process went without hitch and was also quick. We were also able to turn up at any time during the day our tickets were booked for so we had the freedom to arrive in London at our leisure and choose which attraction to experience first.
The London Eye it was! Despite being a beautiful sunny day and appearing to be busy we only queued for about 25 minutes to get on out 'flight'. I was a little worried little monkey would choose not to go on the London Eye but he didn't hesitate to walk on and seemed to enjoy the experience like the rest of us. The view was amazing!
The team of staff running the London Eye that day were attentive and helpful whilst maintaining professionalism and keeping everything moving swiftly. We all loved it! From 14th November until 3rd January 365tickets are selling London Eye & Frostival tickets so that you can eye-skate right next to the Eye. We didn't go for this option as the monkeys aren't keen ice-skaters but I'd give it a whirl!
After a quick bite to eat we then moved onto the London Sea Life Aquarium. Spread over three floors, the SEA LIFE London Aquarium houses 500 species of global aquatic life. Explore Shark Reef Encounter, a major new feature of SEA LIFE London Aquarium, from the glass tunnel walkway. Quick and easy to access we were directed into the correct entry and off we went. The floors are accessible via stairs and lifts. There are several different experiences, all in different zones. The monkeys were intrigued to see the Shark Zone but were also a little weary. We all loved the Penguins! Next time we go hopefully we can stay longer but little monkey was keen to get back to the trains home and time was cracking on. There is so much to see and do.
We loved the Aquarium and would definitely go again and book tickets for both attractions or others through 365tickets! A hitch free experience which we all enjoyed very much.
With huge thanks to the 365ticket team for the complimentary tickets in return for this post.
