Great way to spent a few hours looking at the amazing creatures,the layout is very easy to get around even in a wheelchair or pushing tots around.Great value for money at only £12-50P.

We had a wonderful and funny time going to the aquarium. It would be a good idea to make a bigger discount for large groups of people (+10).

I think your comments are very fair, and teenagers definitely have a shorter attention span in aquariums than families with younger children.

You can see at this place many fish of all sorts and more and is rather a fine experience to go there with your children.

Hi Carrie, I know this is no excuse but we are currently updating the tour to make it more engaging and interactive, so I apologise that you experienced the transition stage.

Educational and my son loves it but am I missing something do you have the loch Ness hidden here it's so expensive for one off visits even with corporate discount

Max L, General Manager at Sea Life Brighton, responded to this reviewResponded 3 days ago

Hello Daniel, I am sorry you felt this way. With tickets for only £10.50 online most visitors find this excellent value for money. This may be controversial but I am not a believer of Nessie, and she certainly is not hiding in Brighton.

Not at the actual attraction no. There is a multi-storey car park very nearby, like less than a five minute walk from the aquarium. I always find it cheaper to get the train to Brighton, as parking there costs the earth!!

Yes. You can buy tickets on the door. But this is not guaranteed on busy days.
