Sea Life London Aquarium is always adding new displays and the latest is Claws
- the chance to get close to some incredible crabs, including the Japanese Spider Crab which can be 12 foot across!
They certainly got the kids squealing but there's plenty more to see that had them mesmerized including the seven species of shark in the Shark Reef Encounter display and a playful colony of Gentoo penguins in the chilly Ice Adventure area.
Please see my Sea Life London Aquarium Review.

St. Patrick may be the patron saint of Ireland
but here in London we too like to celebrate. It's a busy one, so you'd better read up in advance on the St. Patrick's Day in London celebrations
and see some photos from previous years
Of course, you'll want to enjoy a pint of Guinness at this time of year so have a look at the list of Best Irish Pubs in London
which were chosen for their ambiance, as well as their Guinness!

If your mother is anything like me then they'll adore any reason to indulge in tea and cakes. Afternoon tea is my favorite meal of the day and, for Mother's Day, St Ermin's have not only tea and cakes on offer but also a presentation about the evolution, customs and etiquette of English Afternoon Tea by Newby Teas.
I've already tried this and it was a really enjoyable way to start the afternoon. The presentation and the afternoon tea is held in the new Tea Lounge which means you get to ascend the stunning grand staircase. Plus, Newby Teas has the best Earl Grey tea in town.
Mother's Day in England is not the same date as in the US. Our Mothering Sunday is on 30 March and the Tea-torial is available on 16, 23, and 30 March but do book in advance. More info...
