Small but perfectly formed! 4 out of 5 stars

Brighton Sealife is housed in a beautiful old building, mostly underground, which really adds to the experience when you are there. It's smaller than other Sealife Centres but still has a very good selection of creatures plus lots of pop up exhibitions.
