Been years since last visited,and this trip exceeded all expectations! The wife and I visited as part of our anniversary trip. Excellent staff. Detailed information cards for kids/Adults next to each display. Clean. Animals well cared for and looked fantastic. We are taking our kids next week! They also give REWARDS FOR FORCES discount!! Excellent!

Good value for money (booked via holiday park) and not too busy. Good variety of animals and especially like the walk through tunnel and penguin zone. Even touched a starfish :) Kept our very active two year old entertained and spent a good couple of hours wandering around.

Having been to other sealife centres you have an idea what to expect. For us it wasnt the best. We thought by taking a voucher from a whats on leaflet at our holiday site we could get in as cheap as possible. We either misread it or didnt look at all the small print. Under the impression general admission for... More

Please Sealfie centres, you know how to charge so at least spend some of the money on making the centres abit different.

Dear Ipswich21 We do recommend that our potential guests book online or pick up a voucher to get themselves a discounted entry offer. Having visited other Sea Life centres you will notice that we are slightly different and may house different creatures, however we are all committed to education as a protector of the seas and all of our centres...
