Yeh its just across Westminster Bridge from the Houses of Parliment in a building called County Hall, theres a GPO there aswell but I havnt had chance to go yet, although my friends photos look brilliant!!! Would post some pic's but dont think my mates would appreciate bein all over the internet!!
Also if you get chance to go then I recommend you pop up into the Marriot hotel in County Hall (above) an have a glass of with the best sticky toffee puddin in London expensive but worth it for the view from the library over the river
oh an theres a gimmiky thing in reception of the aquarium thats a Ford KA turned into a tank full of fan tail goldfish thingys
There you go theres somthin for your next trip!!!!
The London Aquarium is a nice day out, I feel a little bad not mentioning it to you, Melissa. I'd forgot, believe it or not, so I apologise! At least the Aquarium is not going anywhere so I'm sure you can go next time.
There is a wonderful cylindrical tank that one can walk around containing rays, sharks and many forms of fish that is quite hypnotic to watch. Seeing a huge ray glide past inches from ones head is an interesting experience. There are tanks full of piranhas and all sorts of Amazonian fish, and even a tank full of jellyfish propelled around in a loop. It's well worth a visit if anyone ventures over to London one of these days. One even gets to stroke a ray in a hands-on-pool!
I did not see a GPO on my last visit a year ago, though there were a few cuttles, and I'm sure there used to be midskippers too. I suppose the animals on display are changed around occasionally.
Phil, don't apologize, I hardly had a minute free. Next time, the aquarium will be my first stop.
As you describe it, the aquarium sounds a great deal like the New England Aquarium in Boston. I especially like the petting pool of rays - they are surprisingly soft and seem to like the attention, like puppies.
