Went with 4 adults 3 kids. Really enjoyed it the sealife however had a couple of problems while there. Firstly getting out is not at all clear once you are in there. When sharks are being fed people make it difficult for others to get past when watching in the tunnels so if an emergency exit was needed you would... More

I do find many of these rather samey. To be fair it was well done and put together and if you like this sort of thing then I'm sure you would not be disappointed. Nothing new or unusual to blow you away though.

Got in free with our Merlin pass so we had to take part! Visited with my husband and son. friendly insightful staff throughout however we did get bored and were in an out in 30 minutes. The feeding shows and staff taken events are so spread out that it was hard to imagine planning your trip to include these timings.... More

I certainly don't think that £16.50 per adult is a fair price. It's not a big attraction inside and when we visited as a family, there were renovations being Carried out which we had not been informed of. The centre itself has some impressive Sharks, but on the whole , it's not ' that good .'

We visited in very busy half term. I thought it was expensive, but they have a good large variety of sealife.
