SEA LIFE Brighton is one of the most extensive and impressive Sea Life Centres in Britain, besides being the oldest aquarium anywhere on the planet. Housed in an amazing Victorian pile, it’s recognised by maritime conservation aficionados as among the greatest in the world, and it is, without a doubt, a superb family day out.
SEA LIFE Brighton Exhibits and Attractions
A ticket to Sealife Brighton takes in all manner of maritime wonders, with 57 exhibits including a tropical reef and submerged tunnel that offers a brilliant view of turtles, sharks, stingrays and a wide range of other sea creatures.
Snapping jaws, swishing tails, and leaping frogs. Wind through the roots and tree trunks and say hello to our rescued terrapins and their friends. Explore the den of some of the largest snakes in the world in the Rainforest adventure.
Day and Night Ocean Experience
Forming part of a 2.7m refurbishment, discover the underwater world as you have never seen it before and journey from day to night. This new first-of-a-kind experience offers guests the opportunity to witness the 24-hour wonder of a coral reef in a 750,000-litre display as it moves through the day.
Even though they might look like mythical creatures, seahorses are very real. See the seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts. If you’re lucky you may even hear their unique “finger-clicking” sounds as they feed.
Secrets of the Reef
Spot Dory, Nemo and their colourful friends in the coral-filled tanks.
