We visited the Sea Life Centre today with our 3 grandchildren aged 10, 7 and 4. Firstly, even though we took advantage of entrance ticket deals it still worked out round the £50 mark for the children, my husband and I. To be honest, the 4 year old was fed up after 30 minutes of looking into glass tanks, he... More

If you've ever been in a sealife centre before you know what to expect, they're all the same and this one was no different except the awkwardness of stairs and a small cramped shop. We did get to see the octonauts which was a bonus for my little two children, If I hadn't of had a merlin pass I wouldn't... More

I went to sea life with my cousin a few days ago after we won a free pass. The staff were friendly enough and the centre itself was spacious and clean but the problem with this attraction is that it is boring! It doesn't have an interesting enough collection of species to be entertaining and my cousin was really bored... More

Was very disappointed that my 9 year old daughter was kept waiting at the shop for 10 minutes while the staff debated whither her Scottish five pound was legal tender or not!!!!!!! Not good value for money at all that includes the extra £3 each to see the baby fish all 4 different species.

Great choice for a windy and rainy day. The whole exhibition was inside and it was nice to get out of the bad weather. The staff where very helpful in explaining facts about the different fish and aquatic animals. It was a very enjoyable day and it was nice to casually stroll about and not being pushed from to and...

We picked this venue as a day out for my granddaughter. We found the staff very helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant. It was certainly enough of an attraction to keep her happy for a few hours. The fish and ray feeding was interesting and she was fascinated. Adult only parties may be disappointed as its easily viewed in an hour and... More

It was a drizzly day so decided to take our 2yo son for a trip out. Asking for corporate discount as I work for NHS, was told I have to book tickets 24 hours in advance so paid full price. Definitely not worth it! Understandably, weekends our busier but it was ridiculous! Couldn't see half the attractions as not very... More
