We really enjoyed our visit here. Our kids loved it, fed the fish and listened to the lady talk. If you want a quick zip around, read the information kind of place this isn't for you, bit if you have a little time and listen...More
If you want to spend half an hour listening to how electricity prices are closing them down, how council haven’t supported them, how the landlord is hopeless and look at fish that are living in pretty average conditions then come here. Tour guide complains that...More
As another reviewer has said, don't let looks put you off. Yes this is a small aquarium - privately owned and run with no big tourists dollars or backing, but the experience is intimate and personable especially suiting to young families. My children aged 6,...More
Our family visited the sealife centre today, with our children (9, 5 year olds and 18 month old). It is only a small aquarium, but it was a lot of fun for the kids and enjoyable for us too. The lady there was very friendly...More

Fabulous place to visit. Not pricey at all by other standards - remember no govt help, no council help or tourism help other than word of mouth by other visitors & a few local businesses. For shame! As this is a great experience for people...More
Not a huge aquarium but had lots of different things to see. Highlight for us was patting the sharks that look like stingrays (can't remember their proper name!!!!) but they were gorgeous all the same.
Our young family loved visiting the Sealife Centre. The owner was very passionate and knowledgeable about her animals and her enthusiasm was contagious! We chose to stay and feed the fish which was a unique hands on experience that the kids especially loved.
What a great time we had, we visited 18th January, Norma was brilliant with her wealth of information, and a lovely lady. The kids aged 12 & 8 had a great time, and especially enjoyed feeding the fish & sharks. It is a small place...More
