I agree with other reviewers who have said that this is a good aquarium but too small. I was spoilt by a visit to the Sea life Centre in Birmingham which was fantastic and huge, but was spoiled (for me!) by constant groups of school kids, one group after another throughout our visit. While good to see their enthusiasm, we... More

I booked the tickets online which worked out cheaper, the attraction would not have been worth the on the door prices. The sealife centre is however, one of the best smaller aquariums I have visited, although it lacks space there is a fair amount to see. The staff were very friendly and helpful when providing information about the attraction. The... More

Although it is a small aquarium we thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Staff were both friendly and patient towards all visitors. Would definitely recommend it.

I went here with my 3 children aged between 3-9 years old, I booked our tickets online as it worked out cheaper (£19.20) we walked round in about 15 minutes so I said we will walk round again this time reading all the info on the different types of fish,sharks,crocodiles etc and that took us about 30 minutes. It's really... More

It is true that the Sealife Centre is not that big but what it lacks in size it makes up for in enthusiastic, friendly staff and attractions. We come here a couple of times a year and they always have new attractions and activities for children to do. I have always found it good value for money as you can... More

The staff were very friendly and those who were carrying out the scheduled talks were knowledgeable. The tunnel is very impressive. I do think it is over priced (book online for a slightly cheaper ticket price) as the tour only takes a few hours at the most. It was a shame that the majority of the educational push button question... More

We had a nice time, going in twice on one day as we missed one of the talks on the first go. Everyone enjoyed it and the staff were very energetic, knowledgable and helpfull. Not the biggest aquarium but a good couple of hours out with the kids

Nice staff, but compared to similar elsewhere it is a bit of a let down. We got reduced priced tickets via Adventure playground and would have been peeved if we had paid full wack. It seems like it is over before it begins, and the advertised feeding time of the new sharks was wrong! Instead we got a talk on... More
