In 1908 a 29 year old architect, Ralph Knott, unexpectedly won a competition to design a fitting home for the London County Council. The building, which was designed in the Edwardian baroque style and faced in Portland stone, was opened in 1922 by King George V.

The building is no longer used by London’s Governing body and is now a leisure complex housing several tourist attractions, hotels and restaurants including;

London Sea Life Aquarium.
Based over three floors in 14 themed zones in County Hall, the London Aquarium is home to 500 species of fish from all over the world. Over 2 million litres of water and deep tanks allow the fish to swim freely and be closely observed.

Visitors can watch diving displays, take part in interactive feeding, touch the creatures in a specially designed pool and see the colony of Gentoo Penguins in their ice cave.

A popular display is the Shark Reef encounter, a glass walk-way over a shoal of 16 sharks swimming beneath.
