SEA LIFE After Dark is back for two more VIP events this year, giving adults the chance to explore the deep seas uninhibited by the usual daytime throngs.
Wander around the London Aquarium on Southbank surrounded by over 500 species from around the world, including sharks, seahorses, turtles and piranhas. But unlike the daytime equivalent, at the adult-only After Dark event you can accompany your underwater journey with music, fizz and food in hand.
What's more, get in quick and your early bird ticket will cost you less than standard admission. Bargain! **EDIT, EARLY BIRD TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT!**
Thrill-seekers can take their welcoming glass of Prosecco and head straight for the glass shark walkway, while those more into the cute and cuddly can pay a visit to the Gentoo penguins in the Aquarium's Antarctic Ice area. Snap a selfie with a crocodile, or meet a ray, before tucking into the gourmet food and chatting over a cocktail in the Atlantic Cove bar. You don't get that on a Friday night in your local.
SEA LIFE After Dark takes place on Friday 3 October and Friday 21 November from 6.45pm. Tickets start from £15 (includes a glass of prosecco) and can be booked by clicking on the dates above. Over 18s only - I.D may be required for those of youthful appearance.
