Some sea creatures I've never seen before on my visit to Sea Life Blackpool. If you like Stingrays to photo bomb when taking pictures then you'll love this place.

Yay! We visited Sunday (19/04/2015) and had a great experience! What we enjoyed the most was the fact that it's not a tour as such you're free to walk around freely and enjoy the marine life for as little or as long as you like. Our favourite part was the Clown Fish & Paracanthurus area because one of our favourite... More

The exhibits were interesting, informative and well laid out. There was lots of interactivity for the children and they were well engaged as we moved through the exhibits. We were all very excited by the walk through tunnel where the Sharks swim all around you. We made time for crazy golf afterwards too.
