Had a fantastic trip to Sea Life, Great Yarmouth! Loads of fascinating creatures about and learnt so much! Unfortunately the Sharks were staying in Birmingham as their tank was being re-fitted and updated, but Sea Life gave us a "Half price ticket when you come back" as a way to say sorry for the lack of sharks - which I...

A very good sealife centre. Nothing more, nothing less. It was bigger than the last one I visited. I would visit it again when I have my daughter with me.

My two kids loved spending a cold afternoon at the sea life centre. Despite the shark tank being closed they made the most of the other attractions and talks and will definitely return and make use of the discounted return tickets. An educational, fun visit.

OK so to start I used a 50% off voucher for two adults and a child so the visit was £25 which I thought wasn't to bad however the full price at £50 I would not have paid that. The shark enclosure was being altered but to be honest I didn't miss the sharks to much. The staff are very... More

After reading some recent reviews I was a bit worried we would be wasting our time and money visiting but was pleasantly surprised as we all thought the centre was great. Every effort was made to ensure we knew the shark tank was closed (on the website, notice outside, at cash desk and lady on cash desk made sure we... More

Title says it all. If the price was five pounds to enter, it would be fantastic value, but at three times this, you will feel it was overpriced and over quickly. Tips: buy online to save money and go early in day for an hour, leave and do something else, then go back at the end of the day -... More

Love the sealife centre but at its best it is expensive. When we went we were advised before entry that the main feature, the shark tank was closed due to refurbishment. No seahorses and outdoor viewing area to view the penguins was also closed. Even with vouchers it cost us £30 to get in and the price for what we... More

I went there with my 2 year-old and I thought this sea life centre looked dated, dirty and tiny for the admission price you have to pay (we went all around the centre in under 1 hour, and we took our time)! I don't think I will ever set foot there again.
