We had vouchers for free adult tickets so four adults and four kids cost us £60 to get in. This is what it is worth even without the vouchers. When you are inside, it is very interesting and enjoyable, plenty to look at and learn about. Problem is that you will cover it all in between one and two hours.... More

The Sealife Centre at Blackpool is a great attraction to visit. It is suitable for all ages and abilities. There are rare species that were new to us and it is very educational. It has been well designed and every consideration given to families with pushchairs or wheelchairs. Well worth every penny! Just found it hard to find the exit... More

Liked how your tickets enabled you to come and go all day and free round of crazy golf next door included. Lots of talks in various areas and interactive things for kids, also chance to meet the Octonauts.

We were able to push our young daughter around the whole centre which is very pushchair friendly. Lots of exhibits and very well laid out. The... More

Its a good job the lights are dimmed because if you had a good look in daylight you would be shocked at the poor repair of this Sealife centre. You may ask why I as looking around,... More
