National Sea Life Centre, Birmingham

(2.5/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Discover the underwater world at National Sea Life Centre. Wander through over 60 displays showcasing more than 1,000 ocean and freshwater creatures, including hammerhead sharks, giant turtles, and otters. Touch crabs and starfish at the interactive rock pool, and attend feeding demonstrations for various aquarium inhabitants throughout the day. Join one of the walkthroughs or sit in on a talk to learn more about the fish and animals here, or check out a short film in the 4-D cinema. The site does not have a cafe, but you can find plenty of dining options in town. Have your hand stamped before exiting so that you can freely return any time before the aquarium closes.
