“Not as good value as other Sealife Centres”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Not as big as other Sealifes and the only outdoor bit is a rather smelly penguin enclosure. Pricing was a bit sneaky - given without VAT so came to a lot more than we expected and we were round and done in under two hours so not particularly good value. The best bit is the cafe and the free play area with ball pool - really wish we had spent more time there and not bothered with the main centre!

“For one hour - over priced !”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Staying locally, a Sealife visit was a must. But even though I used a voucher, still cost over £35.00 for 3 of us. Our son (4), enjoyed it, but i have to say, I found it expensive for an hour. It really only takes that long to walk round.

You receive a stamp on your hand, so can enter & exit all day..... but why would you want to go in & out. Once you've seen it... its done.

I understand the costs will reflect the running of the place..... but I will not be returning.

“'Sea' what you can 'see'”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great indoor attraction on the sea front of Great Yarmouth. There was a man dressed up as a pirate for the kids and when you had 'stroked' a starfish you receive a free medal. There was a great section with Finding Nemo and the seahorses. Fab water feature with walk way tunnel with giant turtles, great for all. We have a Merlin Pass and this is one of the best Sea Life Centres. Only one comment - clear away the cobwebs hanging off of the sharks in the entrance!!
