This is quite a dingy place with quite unhelpful and disinterested staff. I've been to 2 other large aquariums in the uk (Plymouth and Manchester) and this is very poor in comparison. We spent 1.5hours there and we were done. Glad we didn't pay full price for the tickets!

Bought the ticket along with tower entrance so saved some money on entrance fees. I just love watching fish and sea life and so find the place fascinating. I could just sit for hours and watch the fish swim by. Can be loud especially if a lot of children are shouting and running around.

Annual membership available for £40 per person. Great for an hour or two on a rainy or cold day. Lovely variety of fish and nice little soft play area at the end too.

Lots of marine life to see but you certainly pay for it. Two of us had a special offer ticket (Two attractions for £26) but the other two paid over £35. Enjoyed the walk through the tunnel but all very commercialised. No time limit so if you go walk round a couple of times to get your money's worth

We visited the Sea Life centre in Blackpool during a recent visit, and had a really enjoyable time. There is a good variety of marine life to see, and although we didn't have any young children with us, you could certainly see that the ones that were there were getting a lot from the their visit. The highlight is the... More

I visited here last weekend with my step daughter who is 4 year old. First of all for just us two it was nearly £35... For the money I was very underwhelmed.
