  • Beautiful building, wide variety of marine life and knowledgeable staff. Be prepared to spend a few hours here. 
  • The entrance and just beautiful with style church and it's Rainbow light. The price and correct for the number of available aquarium. If you're in brighton go see it!

  • I was a little unsure at first about visiting the Sea Life centre, but as soon as we walked through the door you can see evidence of their conservation and breeding efforts, which definitely instilled my trust. There's a huge array of sea life to learn about, and some really fascinating and eye-opening facts, as well as opportunities to pledge your support in making this world a better place. I'd really recommend paying the extra few pounds for the glass bottom boat - it gives a great, up-close and unique perspective of the marine life and the staff are brilliantly knowledgeable. We visited during on a weekday just before lunch time and it was perfect - nice and quiet and we didn't have to compete with anyone to look around. Just as we were leaving a large school trip arrived, so afternoons may be busier!
  • I love the array of aquatic life displayed here. They all look well cared for and the staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There are plenty of things to keep children entertained and engaged. It is expensive so check out deals online first rather than just turning up. ...and yes you can see Dory, Nemo and friends :o)
  • Was ok. Good to fill an hour or so. Lots of fish and sea stuff. Avoid weekends if you want a quiet experience. A tad expensive.
  • I got a 40% discount. Price I paid with that seemed reasonable with time spent. Heavily Finding Dory themed currently, as movie was released a week or so ago. Talks were well done from attraction people but too crowded to be properly enjoyed.
  • Terrible access problems for wheelchair and buggy. Poor signs. Popular with kids. Crowded at holiday times
