  • This would have got a 5* rating but was spoiled by the length of time taken by the staff (we believe there was problems with the card printing machines when going for our annual passes) and some confu...  more »

  • Excellent Halloween treat at the sealife in Manchester. Loved loved loved the mermaid they were fantastic. We have visited a few aquariums since having kids & although this isn't the biggest the mermaids make it! My daughter is obsessed with mermaids since seeing them & wants to go back everyday. Can't wait to see when they are on next - will definitely be make another trip!
  • Really enjoyed the mermaid experience with my children. Would go again. Although the actual sea life centre itself was not very big and didn't have as many sea creatures as I initially thought. But great atmosphere from the staff and great Halloween event.
  • Very small and overpirced. We were finished in half an hour. The place is lovey it's not worth the money though. There is a soft play for kids in there but nowhere for the parents to sit that's comfortable, just these little tiny things attached to the wall that you basically lean on, not sit on. Shame, it could be so much better!
  • My daughter loves this place, but now she is over 3 she has to have a full price ticket. Even with a 2 for 1 offer for three of us this isn't great value for money. On the plus side the staff are great, they always take time to make the kids feel special and there are some great touches for little people, like a tunnel of clown fish. On the down side, the place is really small and looking a little tired these days.
  • Quite pricey by itself as it is a small place with not many things to see and do, especially considering how busy it is around the small tank windows and things to engage the kids. However, when bought in conjunction with a Lego Discovery Centre ticket it isn't too bad and you can spend the whole day between the two (they are next to each other). You can also go out and come back later if you prefer. The staff were quite good when we visited including the narrator of the 'Turtle's Story' at the start.
