Aquarium · Zoo / Aquarium
Jump into a sea of ocean life at SEA LIFE Hunstanton. 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.

  • A little slow getting into the venue due to the temp checks and being signed in but really good when in. Good attractions throughout, with friendly service. Penguins being the highlight of the trip.  more »
  • Don't waste your money, very shabby and tired attraction. Travel to a bigger sealife centre....it took less than an hour to around this attraction. Some interesting exhibits just not enough of them  more »
  • Bit disappointed with this Sealife Centre. Having visited many of these I found this one small, a bit shabby in places and on the basis that it only took us an hour to go round, not very good value...  more »

  • Our family loved our day out here . Spent nearly 3 hours slowly walking around, loads of information everywhere and interactive screens to accompany what you were looking at. Staff were very lovely and were super good with my kids. Really nice day out. Kids get a medal and some tattoos at the end if you find all the hidden treasure dotted around in tanks.
  • Great experience. Lots to see. Especially loved the large turtle and the penguins, never new penguins made a donkey like noise! Children will love the opportunity to touch some of the creatures, a fun learning opportunity. There is a Costa coffee shop where you can chill before and after. The usual souvenir shop is on hand.
  • A great sea life with a huge variety of things to see. In one room there was also a mermaid giving out badges. It has an awesome climbing structure with sandpit for kids and benches to sit on. There is a kiosk there to grab snacks. The cafe is not a cafe as such no hot meals but does do lunch boxes. Price wise was pricey but as an attraction to visit in Hunstanton its a nice place to visit and next to crazy golf and a bar. I went with two kids.. It was good.
  • We visited here this month, the first time since before they were damaged in the flooding a few years ago and had to close to have work done. It was a pleasant visit with polite staff who were always happy to talk with you. We saw the otters being feed and the staff member who did a talk was brilliant, she had a lot of knowledge and kept the crowd interested and engaged. Personally the entry price is steep, unless you are able to take advantage of the pay once and return throughout the year free or have a discount voucher. My 8 year old boy and 2 year old girl had a great time.
  • Superb half day activity for preschoolers and young children. Interesting for Adults too. A bit pricey and follows the annoying 'exit through the toy shop' trend but that's pretty standard these days. Cafe is distinctly average with typically beige food and sweet options. Zero choice for coeliac / gluten intolerance unless you want to eat cake.
