We took our little girl just under two years old, great for a couple of hours nice selection of fish, also a bit bigger than some of the other sealife centres we have visited, our little girl loved it, there is also a big cafe and a soft play area for the kids, also placed quite conveniently on the seafront...

Visited here for the first time and on the whole the place was good, but had discount vouchers to get in which made it OK value, but would not been happy with the full price. The tour round itself takes about 20-30 minutes an you can touch a star fish. I was quite mythed about the number of tropical fish... More

We took our 7 month old baby as she loved the London aquarium and with the different lighting and displays the sealife centres are like a sensory room for her, without the touch. This sealife centre is on a smaller scale to London aquarium but has lots to see. I was very disappointed that there were no baby changing facilities... More

We decided to go here one afternoon, as the great British weather decided to dump a month's worth of rain in one day! Unfortunately, so had everyone else in Norfolk that afternoon. However, in all fairness to the staff they did warn us that due to the weather there were unusually long queues of approx 20-30 minutes to get in.... More

Admission was expensive, had discount vouchers which made it a little more affordable. Unfortunately not that many different species on show, but really enjoyed stroking the starfish and having fingers cleaned by the shrimps. We had my mother who finds it difficult to get about but had no problems getting around on her mobility scooter. All in all a nice... More

With a little time and effort you can enhance your experience by getting in at a reduced rate. Try O2 priority rewards or discount on line. I do think full price is too pricey - particularly if you have children. We visited as a couple - got to say it has improved from 2 years ago. It was unique and... More

We love visiting the Sealife Centre. Our Merlin Passes give us free entrance and especially for me, the Penguins are the best bit. We like to feed the fish and see the sea horses!

Took the kids on a day out and there was fun for all the family. They have a little quiz for you to do on your way round and the big kids were helping the little ones. We also went and did the tower to look at the jurassic coast and it has a great view of the bay and... More

had the half price vouchers which made it just about affordable, but they have very limited numbers of animals here. incredibly disappointed. may have nice set up, but my biggest personal issue is having the green sea turtle. these swim 1000s of miles a year, and really should not be in captive environments. i asked if it was a rescue...
