The Sea Life centre is great for kids and bad weather cannot spoil the fun.

The ticket prices can seem expensive at £20.95 but if you book online you can save 40%. Children under 3 are FREE and you can book Family Tickets.

We however recommend you look at the SEA LIFE ANNUAL PASS which costs £40 for the first pass and then £35 for the extra passes. This offer allows 12 months entry so you can go whenever you like.

12 months unlimited entry to 12 UK SEA LIFE Centres

This annual pass saving is amazing if you plan to go to Legoland Windsor. LEGO land is £48 per Adult and £43.80 for Children and this is actually more than the cost of the Sea Life Centre Annual Pass making this a MUST HAVE DEAL.
