    we had a bad experiance going here.not very well sign posted when you get into the little boy was very frightened,and couldnt find any signs to get out.when we did we went to the "toddler area" well if thats what you call it.all the games where out of order,when i finally find a member of staff was told there doing eletrical work? i would have thought you would do this when closed.not very helpfull staff at all.on the possative side the tropical fish,stingrays,sharks etc were gourgous.i think they just need to be more helpfull better signs and more organised.

    Located right in the husltle and bustle of The Waters Edge in Bridley Place, The national Sea Life Centre is worth a visit whilst in Birmingham. It was the first of its kind to come to Birmingham, and it has a lot to show off on display. Thousands of underwater creatures, including starfish, sharks, and perch and underwater plant life are a few of the things that can be seen at The Sealife Centre. The main thing that all kids are dying to see from stepping foot in the Sea Life Centre is the Titanic Adventure, which is a walk through three-dimensional transparent tunnel, viewing marine life on all sides.

    No matter what age you are you will enjoy this, especially if you're older you got the benefit of all the pubs right outside the building. Surely its worth taking the kids around for a few hours, when the reward for you at the end is a ice cold pint over looking the canal?f*

    The Sealife Centre is a great place where people can discover a tropical paradise in the heart of Birmingham. You can explore over 55 displays on four floors & get up and personal to hundreds of exotic creatures and learn how they live.

    it is a great place to lear how the animals feed and discover the world of the Seahorse and even help save the animals by adopting one of the creatures. The turtles are so adorable so on your visit you could always adopt one hehe.

    There is so much to do at the Sealife Centre, you will never get bored. There is a restaurant, Soft play area, gift shop and lots of things to see and do throughout the centre. It is a fantastic day out for all ages.

    It opens daily from 10am & the tickets are valid allday.

    Sealife Centre.

    All kinds of sealife can be found here from sharks to small tropical fish.

    The main exhibits amongst others are the Ocean Tunnel, The Beach, Bay of Rays, Touchpool, Otter Sanctuary and the Stream.

    It is amazing to think that somewhere like this exists in the middle of the country.

    I haven`t actually been yet but will someday soon.

    Open daily from 10am except Christmas Day.

    Fantastical fish

    One of the most popular tourist destinations in the city, the National Sea Life Centre cost an estimated GBP5m to build. One of the most thrilling things about this aquarium is its 360° transparent tunnel, which lets you stand in the middle of the ocean while sharks and other aquatic life forms swim around you. There are 55 displays in total.
