Popped in during easter hoildays with my boyfriend and his parents. The place was busy, and at times the amount of buggies and push chairs made getting about difficult. I appreciate it would be busy as it was a school hoilday, however pehaps buggy parks where possible might help to keep walk ways free for guests to look at the... More

My friends with their 3 young children (ages 3 to 7) really had a good time, as did the adults, and it was a half day well spent. They particularly enjoyed being able to touch the star fish and other small fish in one of the tanks, and sit in the front of the Penguins as they swam behind. The... More

Totally overpriced, 40 mins to go round, £60 lighter... Could be so much better. Staff are lovely though.

I am not sure what I expected, but was overall quite disappointed. The fish and marine life are crammed into very small tanks and mostly small. The general feel of the place to me was like a big pet shop. Not a lot of info or background, really not very much to see other than tanks with small fish aimlessly... More

This is probably the most sophisticated and corporate entertainment to be found in Great Yarmouth! It was a nice way to while away a rainy day and entertained both of my children for several hours . There is lots of hand on stuff to do like stroking star fish and they give out complementary packs of stickers and treasure hunts.... More

We went here over the easter holidays as a treat for my young child. We are local and had a 2 for 1 voucher and it still come to £32 for 3 of us, considering its quite small and you can walk round it in an hour easily, I think its overpriced. My little one enjoyed it, especially the shark... More

On a cold day in Yarmouth this is a great option. Lots to see - the stingrays were great! Penguins were a little sad looking though. Good value if you book online

As always a lovely trip. We had a half price entry ticket which made the entry price a lot more reasonable. We went round once, played in the soft play, and then went back round again. Well worth a visit - especially on a wet and windy day

Visited sea life centre over Easter Weekend as we were visiting Yarmouth for a couple days. I must say i enjoyed it but not as much as last year, this is only due to timing. It was packed cos it was half term and it is a small centre so it felt really crowded but before we went in february... More
