Spent a couple of hours here, really enjoyed seeing all the different fish and sharks and reading all about the different species. Watched the rays getting fed and then at the end we played the crazy golf for £1 extra which was good

Sealife was the highlight of our Blackpool trip. It was part of our tower pass and our children loved it. We only have blue reef where we are so this was our first time at a sea life and it didn't disappoint. It's a must see. We got to put our hands in rock pools while shrimps cleaned them, tickle...

The sea life centre is a really nice family activity. At additional cost you can also have a behind the scenes tour and play mini golf! We have been a few times and always really enjoy it! There is a cafe area for drinks and a play area for younger children! The service is always really good and the staff... More

We went to Sea Life straight after Madame Tussauds and it was pretty cool to see all the marine animals and sea life around you. Again, it was also pretty crowded, if not more so you only got a couple of seconds to see what you wanted to see before moving onto the next thing. I'd recommend this to kids... More

Plenty to keep them engaged (stamp book was a good idea as they went round) and plenty for grown ups as well. Little bit underwhelmed by the shark feeding, perhaps I was expecting more of a frenzied... More
