We decided to visit Sea Life due to the weather being poor. We were a little worried about it being worth the cost. However, we should not have been concerned at all. The displays and various tanks were really good and the feeding times very good. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable on the various sea creatures. Get up close to... More

The first thing that happens on entry is that you are roped off family by family to be photographed in a situation they set up. We went to see what the delay was and at this point told the photographer we want to bypass pictures - to which he looked a little surprised. We then got into the attraction itself.... More

Paid a visit to sea life with my wife and baby daughter, it cost £17.95 each which is so overpriced. The centre itself is ok, plenty of fish to see. It only takes around 30 minutes to walk around. It was ok but worth £17.95 per adult ???? Not a chance!

We loved the day everything is good and fun, it was our son's first birthday and he loved all the fish, mainly the bigger 'pond' & the bit with the sharks. You get your photo taken as you go in & it captures some lovely photos which make you really want to buy them but they are expensive at £9... More

the only reason me and my mum visited was because we had a two-for-one adults offer voucher. I would not have paid £17.95 each because it is simply not worth it. we were struggling to find something to keep us in there to get our money's worth.

We visited this attraction on quite a busy day but still got close enough to see most of the tanks. It's quite a big sea life centre and it has some experiences like snorkelling with sharks and feeding the sharks. We had a free behind the scenes tour and didn't know what to expect as we'd never done one before... More

Visited for the 1st time last week. Had half price offer from Breakaway biscuits packet so took advantage! Also check corn flakes boxes for vouchers. Staff friendly and a very good selection of interesting fish. Quite expensive but hopefully most of money goes on upkeep on fish.
