We visited with our 6 year old using our merlin passes. So, no steep entry price. Having paid around £35 discounted for Hunstanton Sealife centre last year (currently shut due to flooding), Great Yarmouth is better decorated and larger. Children are given a booklet to find fun facts and stamp their booklets to encourage learning about marine life throughout the... More

We visited the centre on Bank Holiday Monday, weather wasn't brilliant so everyone else had deceived to go too! We had pre-booked our tickets so it didn't cost us as much. (Corporate rate £22.50 - 2adults/1child). After a short queue, the staff at reception were still friendly and cheerful although they were probably fed up of apologising to everyone for... More

The worst place I have ever visited, used a Kellogs voucher but still paid £15 for 20mins of cramped viewing a few fish, small sharks, cramped turtles and suicidal penguins. The toilets are so filthy I wouldn't take a dog in there . My advice is don't go it will be a waste of money and the advertising is a... More

This is a good Sea Life Centre, but effectively the same as others such as Newquay. Effectively, it is an hour's worth of entertainment, so please don't think otherwise. On a positive note, it is always wonderful to see these creatures, and they appear to be well looked after. However, due to the short amount of time that it would... More

All of our family loved the range of different animals, scenery and fantastic lighting walking around the sealife. The staff were always on hand for any questions you had and there were some great talks at certain times about some of the animals. Fantastic to look at and great for a family day out.

Using the 2 for 1 vouchers my daughter and I spent a good couple of hours in the aquarium. I especially enjoyed some of the new exhibits and my daughter (6) enjoyed being able to get up so close to the starfish and jellyfish. The staff inside the aquarium were knowledgable and friendly. However, it rapidly went downhill when we... More

Visited this Sealife centre with my wife and 6 year old grand-daughter on the 20th August 2014. Nearly £40 to get in to what can be only be described as a very poor attraction. Apart from the rays and a few small sharks there is little else to see, I know you can enter as many times during the day... More

Yes, the creatures they have in there are lovely to see - especially the penguins. BUT the price is extortionate, we paid £28.50 for a 10 minute walk around and then that's it, done. Such a large amount of money, definitely not worth spending that much. Think we'd have enjoyed it more had it cost half the price! Must be... More

Upon arriving with my two girls, we paid the entry expecting a far more expansive centre.Whilst the sealife was beautiful, for the price I paid I expected more customer involvement in regard to talks, handling ect.. Upon finishing our wander around the centre we ordered food. I ordered a burger and a childs meal. The service was extremely slow, and... More

The last time I visited here was many years ago. We had a great time, we walked around twice to get our moneys worth. My favourite part was the jellyfish & the part where you can handle the crabs etc. It is a shame that the gift shop is so small now, compared to how it used to be. I... More
