In the centre of Blackpool on the promenade. So much too see. Especially liked the sharks and the sting rays. Enjoyed walking through the tunnel seeing the fish and sharks swimming over us. Great for families and adults.

Loved it, a lot of fish. Interesting to look at and very nice to walk about. Overpriced gift shop at the end.

This is a good place to easily lose a lot of money. Which is fine if you have it to lose. There are games for people of all ages, toilets and various eating options at very reasonable prices.

The aquarium isn't large but lots of effort has been put into the displays. There is a good variety of fish and cool tunnel to view the shark tank. Great experience for kids

A really good place to learn about sea life and mammals and fish of all varieties. Blackpool sea life is very educational for up in and old. Pricy but the exhibits and sea life on show are really worth it.

I was amazed when we visited here. The large over head tank just has to be seen. I will remember visiting here for ever. A good range of different species. Highly recommended.

Some of the breeding projects and conservation work is great (or appears great). Some of the fish looked unhappy. Especially the sharks laying at the bottom of tanks... being poked with a big blue stick with food on the end and them not responding. Lots...More
