We decided to visit after hearing that there is a Penguin enclosure were you can watch feeding time. The centre was not crowded so we managed to see feeding time which was great fun for all of us. There was plenty to see including a tunnel were you can get up close to the sharks. My Daughter loved the additional... More

Love sea life centres, especially this one as it has a lot of exhibits and plenty to do. Gift shop is very over priced though.

Went as family group of 2 adults and 2 toddlers. £38 is too much for what you get. Sure there are some nice tanks but you'll be done in less than an hour if you cannot stand and read (which you cannot with toddlers). You can go in for the whole day but bit sure there is much point. However... More

We recently visited this place and had a great time. My 5year old grandson enjoyed touching the starfish and crabs and chuffed that he was awarded a medal. There was also moshi monsters to find in various tanks and stamps to receive in a booklet, all this as well as seeing all the various sea life creatures. We were able... More

I thought the Sealife centre at Great Yarmouth was good. My kids (2 x 7 yo boys and a 4 yo girl) thought it was fun to see the penguins fed and the different fish etc. Spent just over 2 hours there. We didn't eat there but the food looked good and good value. The staff were helpful and allowed... More

Pleasantly surprised having read some of the reviews on here. Nicely laid out, clean tanks, informative and pleasant staff. Not cheap but none of these type of attractions seem to be nowadays. Better than most we've visited in the UK and would recommend to others.
