Got in to the sealife half price with the 50% token on the bottom of a leaflet. So worth paying the £8.50 odd for as full price is a rip off (I will not lie and I would not pay that to go in) I...More

We really enjoyed our morning here. It's not huge but for an hour or two there's plenty to see. We loved the penguins and the tunnel walk through the big aquarium. I imagine it'd get pretty crowded on busy days, so go when it's likely...More

Very interesting place, lots to see and not over crowded. Great staff especially Jess - very pleasant and gave a great penguin talk. Loved the tunnel walk - seeing the turtle, mantaray and fishes swimming all around and above you. Brilliant 🤗

No don't travel especially for that. The seal tank is green and they keep the seals in the 'seal hospital' unecessarily just for show. Having just returned from Epcot in Orlando I won't be going to any sealife centre again... More
