Visited with my boyfriend, my best friend, her husband, and their daughter. Used the half price walkers vouchers to get in, so reasonable here. Tickets last all day, so go in the morning, get the feed and talk times, and come back! Halfway round, I was desperate for a drink. A 500ml bottle of water in the shop was a... More

This was our 2nd visit to Sealife but our children's 1st time. We used Nestle vouchers so we all got half price admission, this made the trip worthwhile. There's a lot to do, we decided to pay extra and go on the breeding tour but was given a time allocation of 30 mins later, we felt we had to rush... More

Having visited other sea life centres I found this to be a disgrace to the sea life center name! It's very tired looking and very basic! Spent less than an hour in the place making it very expensive even with the saving from the pass we had!! If you want to visit a sea life center then go to Loch... More

We have visited a few Sea life venues now and Blackpool being the latest , they are good if the weather is not pleasant and if you can get a deal as they are quite pricey for what you are getting from them . Personally I love aquatics etc. and noticed for the first time you could actually snorkel as... More

Very Greedy business! I expect an aquarium to be serene and relaxing. This it was not! It was hectic, manic, overcrowded, stressful...... we arrived at opening time so it would be quieter but it was still too busy. we felt rushed and harassed, not enough info on the species around tanks. BIG LET DOWN. Had it of been quieter and... More

Since I took 5 children (4 under 6) to the sea life centre perhaps I was just expecting more for a day out. Especially considering the price. We spent two hours MAX in here, and that was stretching it. Overpriced cafe and play area at the end. Kids spent more time in here as none of the 'shows' or 'feeds'... More

We had kellogs vouchers so got family in for 29.50. Wouldn't be happy paying anymore than that. Good fun for kids and you can get back in again to see feeding sessions. Get there early and avoid queues.

I'm so glad we didn't pay full price for this attraction or I might have scored it even lower. What we saw was good, but for what you pay it is in no way big enough. We went round in less than an hour. I do like the idea of being able to re-visit, which we did, and our granddaughter... More

From the moment we walked into the foyer the kids were just delighted. From being able to put their hands into the rock pools and actually hold a star fish and even consider picking up a crab, the monster crab had us all taken aback and watching the smiley faces of the stingrays as the swam above our heads as...
