An expensive attraction for about max 1- 2 hour visit £16 per person no reduced rates for children, not a huge amount to see when in their Penguins looked quite neglected. Aqauriums are a bit murky in large tank , could see plenty of Turtles . Few stingray and tropical fish , but on the whole would rather have gone... More

I took my son, nephew and mum as we were staying close by, it was £50 to get us in. That was with a little discount because of a car park offer. ( it was on the reverse of a pay and display) It was quite busy but not so bad that you couldn't get to view stuff. Kids got... More

Great place, more aimed at children but still really nice and interesting to visit, overpriced for the size however, we went with 2x 2for 1 tokens so got 4 tickets for about £34 so without this would be near enough £70 which is far too much for the fact that even when taken slowly takes only 2 hours to get...

Wasn't going to visit the sea life centre here as usually once you've been to one you've seen them all but I have to say this one has been the bestie yet. The fish looked really looked after, tanks were clean etc, the shark tunnel was beautiful, loved the addition of the Medusa statue it was a nice feature, sat... More

4 adults and 3 young children went for a visit here, been to Hunstanton site previously and really enjoyed it, however from the start this visit was a disaster. After quite a long wait in the queue we were faced with a cost of £96 for our visit, and no concessions for OAPs, after I did question this cost I... More

Good day out if a little pricey. Nice fish. Feel sorry for the turtle swimming for another 100 years up and down the tiny tank.
