Make the Most of Your SEA LIFE Centre Trip
Wondering where to take the kids on the next family trip? With 12 SEA LIFE Centres now located across the UK, a trip to a SEA LIFE Centre is a perfect family day out in all weather. As the largest chain of Aquariums across the United Kingdom, SEA LIFE Centre has a variety of aquariums in popular UK locations to choose from.
We have included everything you need to plan your trip as well as key tips to make your experience more enjoyable and memorable.
Which SEA LIFE Centre To Visit
Before planning your trip we recommend visiting SEA LIFE Centre to find the centre closest and most accessible to you. It’s important to remember that each SEA LIFE Centre has different attractions & facilities so you may consider travelling further in order to get the best out of your experience.
Once you have decided which SEA LIFE Centre to visit, it helps to check out reviews online as they provide tips on the best times to visit to avoid crowds and long waiting times and give you an honest opinion of the experience.
There are some brilliant sights to see at different venues so be sure to check out our Top 10 Sights to See at UK SEA LIFE Centres 2021.
Other considerations to think about to make your family trip as stress free as possible are:
- Buggy policy
- Food & drink
- Disabled access
All of this information is available on the SEA LIFE Centre website, so be sure to check for the location you plan to visit as not all locations will have the same facilities and opening times..
Book Tickets In Advance
We highly recommend booking online in advance in order to avoid queues and get the best discount. You can save anywhere between 20% and 46% depending on where you book your tickets from.

What to Bring with You
You can never rely on British weather so be sure to pack a lightweight rain coat for you and your family. A camera or smartphone to capture some memories and be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Whilst there isn’t lots of walking to do inside the venue, you will be on your feet all day and there is the local area to explore too.
How to Eat on a Budget
Pack your own lunch and snacks to keep your costs down. Travelling to the venue and the cost of tickets all adds up. You’ll have a bit more extra cash for the little treats to be found around the local location, such as ice creams, hot dogs and doughnut stands etc.
If you do fancy eating out as a treat then it’s a good idea to check some voucher code sites for discounts ahead of your visit. Or if you have a Tastecard you can save up to 50% off food at a wide selection of restaurants.
How to Make the Most of your Day
If you are planning a day trip, then it makes sense to get the most bang for your buck. If you are visiting a major City then there are lots of offers offering combination tickets to a number of attractions, such as other Merlin attractions.
Having a good look in advance at the local area and nearby areas for extra activities will stretch the day out and give you the opportunity to pack in more fun things. For example in Brighton there are Black Cat Treasure Hunts and the Brighton & Hove seafront which has lots to keep the children occupied.
