I visited the sea life centre as a helper with a primary school trip. The group of children that I was with and I all thought that the sea creatures were amazing, for example the beautiful moon jelly fish, upside down jelly fist, sea horses and sea anemones. There are larger creatures such as sharks and rays and we attended... More

The girl on the desk was not very helpful and clueless on what she was doing. I liked seeing the sting rays and little sharks. It was a lot of money for what it was.

The sea life adventure is good for the kids to explore the different sea animals there are but you can easily walk in and out within 15 minutes! It is not worth the money for what it is! The best time to come if you really want to go is Easter because they have lots of activities on for the... More

Reasonably priced and well worth it, the annual family price is £47 and they take Tesco vouchers too! Sophie was really entertaining for the kids because she was dressed as a pumpkin and chasing the kids around, she was a real natural. The fish were really interesting especially the turtles and shark!

We visited Sea Life Adventure with our two children aged 3 and 1. We bought our tickets online with a 20% discount. Had a lovely time. Our son is very interested in fish and sea life and loved it. He spent a long time looking at all the fish and wanted to know what they all were. Fasinated by the... More
