As much as I must admit the kids (aged 6-15) enjoyed themselves, I found sea life to be very expensive, very repetitive (seeing several of the same fish in different places) and was over in under an hour! For the money you pay, I'd definitely expect to spend at least 3 hours, and be properly amazed. I've been to better... More

Always a good outing...mostly! The worst first. The café isn't one. Just a boisterous machine drinks area. The shop is a disappointment. But the very worse thing is that Big Daddy, the giant crab, has died. They're keeping that quiet. Possibly because he was the big attraction for most people. However, the soon experienced exhibition is quite entertaining.

We have been to other sea life centres and this we thought was the best one ! The lay out is good and there are plenty of staff about to answer questions etc. The viewing area where we watched the sharks is really good, seems much bigger than others we have visited! At the end when you come out you... More
