Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Jump into a sea of ocean life at Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary. Here you’ll find a wide range of marine animals from sharks and rays to otters and penguins. The site has a seal hospital, where they collect stranded or injured seals and rehabilitate them to live again in the wild. Pet starfish and sea urchins in the shallow pools. Check the feeding schedule to learn firsthand information from the handlers about the animals. Look up the location in advance, as it can be difficult to find. Also, check that the sancutary is open to visitors; in 2013, the site was being renovated after damages due to flooding.

  • As a Sea Life Centre fanatic who has been to a fair few of the UK ones over the years, we decided to visit this one whilst in Hunstanton for the day. It is one of the smaller ones we have been to and ...  more »
  • Overpriced and a poorly signed to the location. The owners need to visit a Sea World centre to see how to run it!  more »
  • Took our granddaughter here whilst in Hunstanton on holiday. The centre is quite small and provides about an hour's entertainment and that by going round twice! There are relatively few exhibits apart...  more »

  • This is a great Sea Life on par with the one in London. It a well design sea life and flow very well. There is a nice range of fish on display as well as rain forest area(small) but got some nice displays. It a Sea Life to expect to being lots of fish behind glass as fish are very delicate. There are some were you can interact with fish, like touch a star fish. If you go around slow probably take you about 2 hours, but this is the cool thing about Sea Life is that you buy a day tickets so you can come and go as you please. So you can come back when it feeding time, which is nice. Mean you are not stuck at their cafe, but saying the the cafe is very nicely​ price comparison to the sea front itself.
  • My daughter had fun which was most important. However, the place itself is very small so everything is crammed together. I wasn't about to try the eatery they but the prices there seemed reasonable. Good for just a little something to do.
  • Very good, the children love it. You can also get a family picture taken. A bit expensive but nice to keep for later years to come. Highly recommended
  • A nice well run SEA LIFE centre. My baby loved all the fishes so worked out well. Could be better value for drinks but on a wet windy Hunstanton day a great place to spend a few hours.
  • This relates only to the foyer/shop. Great staff, good customer service. Prices were high for what is generally the regular tat. There is nothing in the foyer that urges one inside to the main attraction, so I never got to go inside. Maybe next time.
