Owner description: Winner of 'The Best Place to Visit in Brighton & Hove' - Brighton and Hove Business Awards 2014 Brighton Sea Life is the world's oldest aquarium dating back over 140 years. Following recent restoration most of the building has been lovingly restored merging the Victorian splendour with modern technology to ensure a truly unforgettable setting for your underwater adventure. In 2014 work begins on the remaining part of the building which will offer a spine tingling jungle adventure! Meet Lulu, Jersey and Gulliver our resident giant Sea Turtles that swim with sharks and sting rays from the glass bottom boat or the under water tunnel. With over 50 other world class displays we can ensure you will have an amazing discovery throughout your underwater dive.

“Tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

A bit tired and a bit old - It didn't keep my 4 year old particularly entertained. Only go if you are hard up for something to do and have a 2 for 1 voucher

“Fish!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We got into here free with our Merlin passes. It passed an hour or so but I would have been disappointed if I had paid full price to get in.

“Something fishy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

As all sea life centers, worth a visit, it's a little small compared to some I've visited but nice.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

This place is brilliant. I was not expecting to be wowed by the building as much as the fish, so this was a total surprise.
