Seems to be a money grabbing venture with the entrance price increasing and becoming the same for adult/child even though they are putting vouchers on cereal packets again this season. I found it upsetting and have the same sentiments as OgEndy99 who visited in April also.The seal pup that was scratching at the glass with it's flipper was very disturbing... More

Have visited several Sealife centres and although this is not the biggest we have visited it is definitely the most friendly. Ally was great with my teenage son who has a huge interest in marine life. Ally took the time to chat with us and was so informative about all the different species. The shark feed was great, as was... More

This sea life centre isn't the largest but it's certainly a fun day out with the kids. Unlike other sea life centres this one has a seal hospital. You can get up close to view these magnificent creatures and also grab a few quality photos. You can expect the normal sharks and other sea life you would normally expect to... More

We visited on a Sunday morning, it was fairly busy, but not too bad. I've visited various Sealife's over the years including this one, however others in my group had not been before. Everyone enjoyed themselves, it's well worth a visit. We managed to catch 2 feeding times, for the seals and the penguins, which was nice to see and... More

My dad is in a wheelchair and doesn't get out much so this was fantastic combining a little trip to the beach and an indoor centre. It was beautiful to see all the sea life. The otters, seals and penguins were our favourite and the MASSIVE turtle! The staff were all very friendly and helpful opening doors for us. Great... More

We visited on Easter Sunday and although it was busy there was plenty to see and do. We like the fact that you can return as often as you like during the day, so we ended up going 3 times and managed to catch some of the talks and feeds. Our 4 year old loves the crawling tunnels and getting... More
