Just visited here, we had a great time, it is well set out and the animals areclearly well looked after and lots of information about them. All the staff are very friendly helpful and knowledgeable. The food in the restaurant was very nice and reasonably priced. My only gripe is that unusualy there isnt a childs price and they pay the same as adults, also unless you walk round 3 or 4 times you are only really there for a morning or afternoon, we walked round twice not rushing, had some lunch and listened to a couple of talks and was there 3 hours, so it is a little expensive however I appreciate that it must be an expensive place to run. Make sure you have a voucher to get in

we have used this sea life for many years and always found them to help with any questions or issues. I had a issue with my pass and stuart did everything possible I apriciate there time and help. and on our last visit was very sunny nice to see no pups in hospital that's always a good sign the money spent here is helping them look after our sea animals big and small my kids love it to always nice to pop in for a few hours parking cheap was £2 for 2hrs

Used the Tesco clubcard voucher boost scheme to get here, otherwise wouldn't have visited. Although haven holidays offer discounted tickets and vouchers are available on most parking tickets in the local area offering discount which tends to suggest they know it's overpriced and need to tempt people in ! What they have is good but doesn't take long to walk round. Once you get past the ticket desk you are pounced upon to get photos taken, granted you don't have to buy them.. Cafe had a limited menu but was reasonable value. North bay railway is only 5 mins walk from here so we parked at peasholm park took the train and visited here, 3 attractions in 1 day...
