took my niece aged 3 and nephew same age and they loved it they had so much fun with the stamp machines and seeing all the fish. They were unsure about the 4D as it came as a shock as they got shot with water but it was fine as can just sneak out the side if little ones don't... More

Spent approx 2.5 hours enjoying a leisurely walk round all the various tanks and aquariums to view the many varied and fascinating exhibits. The exhibits were beautifully presented and the write ups clear and interesting. The fish of all shapes and sizes were in lovely condition and a great pleasure to see them swimming around close up. A very enjoyable... More

Came here as we were staying in Birmingham over the weekend. Thought the price wasnt bad at first.... But soon to realise this really was only for children. We were here for no more than 45 minutes. Dont get me wrong, it was interesting, the staff were great, the atmosphere was great but i would not come here again unless... More

This is now my second trip the national sea life centre in Birmingham. The first time was dreadful but only because we had a screaming toddler in a push chair that cried all the way round and the place was rammed full to bursting, so we made our excuses and left!. This time was a totally different experience. We booked... More

Impulse visit and so worth it. Was much bigger than expected. Took us 2.5hrs to look round then we had lunch and went back in , thanks to the hand stamp system. Tickets seem expensive but it works out to be great value and we would love to visit again.

We decided to take a trip to the Sealife centre now that the kids are back at school, doing a little research before we left was useful, we are 2 adults taking our 22 month old daughter, it seemed the best way to buy tickets is online with different rates for certain times of the day basically its cheaper to...

We went and used the 2 for 1 voucher which you can gain when travelling by train. We went around 4pm so there were no talks or interactive parts on offer which I didn't mind much. I love penguins however was very disappointed with the small enclosure which I saw them in. There are some interesting parts but overall it's... More
