  • We went here with our 3 children ranging from 1ry -6yrs olds and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't to big that they lost interest and wasn't to small that they wanted more. We managed to do all i...  more »
  • Really lovely place to visit. Great variety of fish. All the tanks are easy to see into even for our nine month old. Information given about the different species was interesting and simple.  more »
  • Better organisation this time round and we sailed through security and reception due to having the passes gleamed last time. The only low point of the experience was the amount of selfish guests takin...  more »

  • I find it absolutely insane how they can justify 19.50 adult walk up price and around 15 for a child. It is in no way worth paying anywhere near that amount. It's very small and even when walking slowly you would be pushed to spend more than 45 minutes in there. I think it's incredibly overpriced. Would not recommend this sea life centre if you want any sort of value for money.
  • Thank goodness we got free tickets in an offer because we were through it within half an hour. Bitterly disappointed, I had been looking forward to it for weeks. Ridiculous price for what it is.
  • Visited with granddaughters having been given tickets for Sea Trek by my daughter last Christmas. Had to contact the only number available in order to arrange an appointed time for the Trek. Everyone had a great time. However when I got my phone bill it was an additional £30 and when I checked it was down to the Sealife contact number. Felt like I had been ripped off as this was the only number you were intructed to contact to arrange this trip. Surely you don't need to rip people off by using premium numbers like this.
  • Me and my boys love it here! I use a voucher so only pay for myself to get in! We are in there about 45 minuets. Buy our pictures at the end and something from the shop! Staff and always happy and very helpful! I recommend this place to everyone! Cheap fun day out!
  • Its decent, the kids enjoyed it. Its very short though, take your time. Staff were friendly, I wouldn't like to pay full price, we got a deal tied into visiting Lego land. Would be nice if the parents had somewhere to sit when the kids are in the jungle gym thing, there was some strange stools that were uncomfortable. A proper eating area would be good then we'd stay longer. Overall, nice experience.
