Well we had vouchers to get in which made the price to get in very reasonable. My teenage boys and myself both found something to interest us and WOW us. Great afternoon spent learning and looking at new things. Very family orientated and easy to get around.

What could get you more into the spirit of the sea than coming face to face with those who live there? This is a truly spectacular attraction and a must for anyone coming to Blackpool. As this is a Merlin attraction, you can save money on entry by purchasing a combined ticket which grants entry to Sealife as well as... More

For the price, the size of the place is disgraceful. There's hardly any species. If you go in expecting to be amazed please don't go. I have been to a few aquariums and this is by far the worst.
