This is a smaller aquarium compared to others I have been too. I was surprised there wasn’t as much fish as I expected. The environment was dark. It was also crowded. Strollers were often blocking the middle of pathways. Sea Life should consider booking times to enter to avoid over crowding. There’s isn’t much seating along the way and it was obvious people needed to sit. It is definitely time to revamp this aquarium.

Excellent, beautifully presented displays. We particularly loved the cruise to see the Penguins, well worth waiting in line for. It seems Sea Life have taken on board the bad reviews of having to get voucher printed then line up again for issue of ticket. I had a voucher which I could not print because I was away from home I only had to queue once and the voucher (unprinted) was turned into tickets. Plenty of staff around the queues helping get people into the right place. A great place to take the kids.
