Suitable for all the family

We visited on a cold January day and it was the perfect indoor respite for all the family. Athough it only takes probably a couple of hours to walk around, before leaving you can have your hand stamped free of charge so you can come back at any point during the day. There's plenty of sea life and other fun activities going on around the centre to make for a fascinating few hours. And if you fancy taking lunch in the city, you're literally a 5 minute walk from some great restaurants. We did just that, and then popped back into the Sea Life Centre before we headed home.
GREAT DAY OUT

I have only been once for an octonauts event and me,my mum and my two boys had a great day. Its a really good day out. The only thing putting us off visiting again is the prices it would cost me nearly £70 which is steep as I would have to come on the train too.
