The aquaria are well presented with a good range of fish types. The penguins are a happy bunch with good viewing below and above water. The price might be a bit steep but you can visit many times in the day which is good because of feeding times and the unpredictable habits of any wildlife. Staff seem knowledgable and try... More

Rubbish! The only good point was the young lad who had the bacteria eating shrimp things that eat the stuff of your hands.. Really nice lad and knew his stuff.... But do you feel it is acceptable to let 2 coach loads of kids into a very small space and still expect to charge everyone full price? Maybe it would... More

We went to the sea life centre as it was a windy rainy day. And it didn't disappoint. We paid for parking in Lowestoff and got a 50% off voucher, but Tesco had vouchers at the till for 40% and Haven gave up vouchers in our welcome pack for 40% too. We liked it so much we went around 3... More

We go our tickets from our Holiday Park (Haven Seashore) they were £9 each so we saved on the entry fee - this is definitely worth it! The sea life centre is great with a variety of sea life to "ooh" and "ahh" at and you can wander through at your own pace. An added bonus is that the entry... More

We almost didn't go to the sea life centre due to the cost (around £25 for my husband and I - our twins are 2 so they were free) but we are so glad we did. The staff were very friendly and informative, and our children loved it! Even when in their pram they could clearly see most of the... More

Great day out for us as a family, lots to see, plenty to do, imagination is also required for extra fun.. For a family of 5 - the entrance fee would have been quite expensive but we did take the 2 for 1 vouchers to make it a reasonable price.. My wife was able to get around the centre on... More

We went with our two boys who are 7 and 4, The attractions were fantastic there were tunnels for the kids to go into so they could look through the tanks, there's a little challenge for them to collect stamps and they won...
