We initially had not planned to go into the Sea Life Centre, but the weather was abysmal. Then by chance we were passing by and decided to go in. We are very glad we did go in. Even though the place was undergoing a partial refit of some tanks the rest was extremely interesting and the staff we met were... More

We are a couple in our mid 50's and can honestly say that even without our grandchildren we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Lots of fish to see, and we loved the crocodiles, which you could get up quite close to. Also the archway with the sharks, stingray and turtle swimming over and around. Quite a magical experience. We paid for... More

We went to the sea life centre in November. Part of the centre was closed as they were installing a new exhibit. We enjoyed what we saw and the staff were very knowledgeable. There just didn't seem to be a lot there so the entrance fee seemed excessive, we only managed to stay for an hour before running out of... More

I visited the centre with my granddaughter who has a love for Turtles. Much of the centre was closed down to visitors (I think due to the time of year) but this was reflected in the reduced price entry fee, even so there was plenty to see. The tanks are designed to show off the creatures to their best and... More

I visited the Sealife Centre yesterday with my sister and our two little girls. We had clubcard vouchers which we mistakenly thought we could use. The lady (Sally?) on the desk was rather disinterested and told us that they "hadn't taken them for ages". I accept that this was our fault for not checking properly but once, having then paid...

Wow am in love with the jellyfish especially, but all of it is amazing. The staff give great talks throughout the day on selected tanks. The cafe does simple food but at great prices, more what kids would want to fills gap but there is a small range of most things.
