We visited on a wet day as not much else to do and although some of the fish were interesting it is just far too small to warrant the price they charge. It took us around 45 minutes to view everything possible in the centre, however, I assume that with small children it would take a lot longer. Also appeared... More

Me and my partner visited here on the 26th February, we was expecting it to last about an hour and a half but we was in there about half hour/45 minutes, the sea life animals are very interesting but just a shame is doesn't last longer.

I say wet day attraction but can be seen at anytime. Lots of sea life on show just dont expect them to all be active. Putting your hand in the tank you will get some kind of fish on it!

As a granmother I have visited the sea life centre several times this year I am glad I made a special ticket purchase which lasts for a year. Because the price of a family ticket is expensive and i do not feel it warrants that kind of money. Although it is nice and the facts they write are good it... More

Enjoyable visit to the Sea life Centre in Great Yarmouth. Lucky to only see 3 people in the whole Sea Life Centre as went at the beginning of February. Was a shame that shark tunnel was shut as had been looking forward to that. They were giving out vouchers to go back but as we were on holiday wasn't able... More

Having been several times I am always happy to go back. It is a little expensive but there are often offers on vouchers etc. Personally I can see everything in about 2 hours - spending time feeding the pacu, touching the starfish and spending ages in the shark tunnel. Just went for a return visit to see the new shark... More

We used a voucher to go which saved us one admission fee. We had a fantastic time seeing all of the sea life there. We especially loved the rays, Noah the turtle and the wrasse. We enjoyed the Penguins feed time. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and we had a lovely chat with Paul, 'the pirate'. My daughter was... More

The first thing about the place that struck me was how small the site is. It was expensive to get in, but I paid up having been to the Orlando park which is good, thought it would be worth a visit. I hated it. The "Inmates" as that is what they are, deserve more space, and the Penguins have an... More

Find this attraction a bit on the expensive side, especially if you have children, and not somewhere to spend a long time in.

It's a nice place, lots of different species to see. However, it was over in about 20 minutes, we actually thought we had got lost because we couldn't believe we were at the end already! But over all worth seeing and good value for money.
