    The Sea Life Centre holds the largest shark display in Europe. You walk through a glass tunnel where the sharks are swimming all around you and over your head. There is also a rock pool where you can have hands on experience with some of the species.
    Opening time is 10..00 daily (Except Christmas Day)
    Adults £7.00
    Children £5.00
    Family ticket £20.00

    The Sea Life Centre is a place I recommend with mixed emotions. While it does have a great walkthrough shark tank which should awe adults and children alike, I still feel that its not right to keep these fish locked up like this. Since I’ve become a scuba diver I prefer to see fish in their natural environment, not shoved into a small glassed box with too many other fish. This really struck home after seeing the tank of lionfish, a fish I’d seen in the Red Sea only 6 months previously. We saw two on our whole dive and here were 9 forced to share the space of this small tank.
    However the Centre is a good learning environment for children, hopefully teaching them to respect and care for the worlds oceans' and creatures.
    Entrance is about £5.50 but it becomes cheaper if you go after 4pm ( I think it was after 4pm anyway) I only paid about £3.

    One of the attractions that we didn't enter was Sea Life. It is big and it seems to be well conceived, but, with a group of adult dancers, it didn't become a priority. Located facing the sea. it must be, for sure, a great idea for families
