Visited in May 2011. Enjoyed my visit here overall but felt it was lacking a little bit. Being on the sea front it is ideally placed for a quick visit, entrance fee is a bit pricey but not too unreasonable. Cafe and toilet facilities available. Could do with some more impressive sea creatures. I did particularly enjoy the underwater tube... More

Our infant school took three year two classes to visit Southend and the Sea Life Adventure was part of the trip. The staff could not have been more flexible or amenable especially when we had to change our timings at the last minute. The 'Rock Pool' talk was great, run by Josh who had a good understanding of 6 year... More

My husband and I took our three grandchildren, ten, five and three and they really liked seeing sea creatures that they would only normally see on TV or in books, sharks, alligator, tropical fish (Nemo) etc. Our youngest granddaughter has mobility problems and it was a little difficult negotiating some of the busier parts and one particularly steep slop with...

I went here with my 9 and 7 year old, they loved it. We were only there for 2 hours but they really especially enjoyed the talks given by staff. All staff members we met were really friendly and enthusiastic. Good fun

I visited Southend Sea Life Centre with my 7 year old daughter and my mum and dad who are in their 70's. I booked the tickets online the day before so saved myself over £6 - result! We all had a brilliant time, couldn't believe they could get so much in - it was like the TARDIS!! The staff were... More

I've looked on here and seen people saying it is expensive. I look at it if we didn't have places like this our sea life would disappear so no its not expensive and I thought it was well worth the money. We spent just over an hour in there. Book your tickets online you do save a little.

We love coming, and have been many times. My boys love all the different sea life. My 4 year old loves sharks! The staff were very helpful, and answered all the questions my boys asked. We had a lovely day. 🐳🐬🐟🐠🐋🐙🐉

We booked tickets online which offered some good savings, found all the staff very friendly, chatty, great with kids and all knew what they were talking about. My children age 6 and 3 loved looking at all the animals, reading the information and doing the activities on the sheets they were given at reception. We managed to see the turtle... More

Was expensive for what it was. Took about half hour or so to get around taking a leisurely stroll and reading the different information about the fish etc. didn't rush and it was still over so quick. Won't be going back.
