Jolie-Pitt stop! Angelina takes the kids to the London Aquarium

Ruth Doherty

It's one of London's top tourist attractions, pulling in £1 million visitors a year, and when Angelina needed somewhere to entertain her six-strong brood while Brad was working, it was the Sea Life London Aquarium she chose.

The A-list family were pictured at the marine world, based on London's South Bank, while Brad was busy filming his new movie World War Z.

The London attraction is the perfect place to take the kids for a trip during the summer holidays.

It's home to one of Europe's largest collections of global marine life, including 500 species from around the world and more than 40 sharks from 12 different species, all spread over 14 themed zones on three floors.

With plenty of fun interaction - from feeding the stingrays to watching diving displays, to touch pools and discovery zones - it'll keep the kids entertained for hours.

And new for summer 2011 is the Penguins: Ice Adventure, where you can visit the Kingdom of the Gentoo Penguins and learn the secrets of their survival in the coldest place on earth.

Tickets cost from £12.66, and summer (23 July to 4 September) opening times are 9am to 8pm daily, with the last entry at 7pm.

Make like Angelina - and go to for more information.
