Been to two or three sea life aquariums in different locations and generally they are fairly similar in terms of exhibits and size. Always good to see the variety of fish and sea life on display. This one had the added bonus of a few penguins and an interesting talk on the rays. Main attraction is tank containing some small... More

Would say expensive for what you get over in 30 mins walking slowly. Good array of small fish but big let down is the tiny shark's when the advertising poster shows much larger shark's outside... False advertising!!

I think I had the worst experience at an aquarium today! For starters, the walkways are very small and hard to navigate. There are several points where only one or two people can walk through. I had a stroller, as did many others, and it was hard for us to find a way through the crowd. When you enter, you... More

The weather was awful so it was something to do for an hour or so. Not surprising it was very busy which made it difficult to see the tanks up close. There were some interesting species to see but I was disappointed not to see any seals. There is a tunnel to walk under giving a different view of the... More

Was very small, tanks looked dirty especially the one with the shark. Tanks were ridiculously over filled with fish to the point it almost looked cruel, fish were banging into each other and the sides of the tank. Once you've been to one sea life you've been to them all. Wouldn't go back, wouldn't recommend and glad i didn't pay... More

We were really looking forward to visiting the Sea Life centre as my grandson adores fish and sea creatures. I was a little disappointed as we seemed to get round the whole place rather quickly. I did like the 'hands on' section though. The tea rooms saved the day with the great kids play area!
