I visited Sea Life for the first time with my wife and teenage daughters. The displays were very good and the staff very polite and informative. For someone, like me, who knows very little about marine life I was pleasantly surprised as to the varied species of fish etc that we're on display. From star fish to sting rays and... More

Wheelchair friendly but was a little boring for my Grandchildren, aged 7 and 10. Probably seen better at other places.

My partner and I had been in Blackpool on a short break and were looking for something to do, after walking round a while and telling him I'd never been to the Blackpool sea life, he decided to take me there and I am so glad he did. Everything from touching a starfish to being in a tunnel surrounded by... More

Took our 4 year old who loved it and we made use of the wristband feature so we could return again later in the day to see the shark feeding. Content was very good and well presented, staff were happy and helpful but the centre is very very warm inside especially on a busy summer day! Although we had a... More

It's a brilliant attraction, there's something round every corner, and the tunnel walk is amazing. Getting up close to all the rays and sharks was the highlight for me, go see it.

After visiting Sea Life centers in Bournemouth, Brighton and London I have to say that the glass tunnel at Blackpool is one of the best I have seen .Worth a visit

First time visit with the family. The kids enjoyed themselves. I wouldn't pay the extra for the behind the scenes tour which is an extra £3 per person. Your basically stuck in a small room with everyone with a few tanks of seahorses etc that you can find at any petshop. Other than that the visit was enjoyable but not... More
