A day at National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham is like a whistlestop tour of the world’s oceans, with over 2,000 incredible creatures across 18 different habitat-themed zones. Find colourful coral in Reef Edge, and urchins, sea stars and anemones (tenner to whoever said that right first time) in Rockpool.
Then you’ve got the big guys. Bay of Rays has blonde, native thornback and painted rays while Tropical Ocean houses bamboo sharks and rare pair of blackchin guitarfish. The Ocean Tunnel is pretty special – it’s a full 360° so you’ll feel like you’re walking on the ocean floor amongst blacktip reef sharks and a giant green sea turtle.
You’ll also meet Ozzy and Ola, the UK’s only sea otters, as well as a colony of very cheeky Gentoo penguins. There’s plenty of contenders for star of the show here but it’s a toss-up between those two for us.

Most people spend around two hours exploring all the aquarium’s different zones, but once you’re inside you can stay as long as you like. Lovely stuff.
SEA LIFE Birmingham doesn’t have its own car park but there is parking available at Arena Birmingham South B16 8ET and Q park Brindleyplace B1 2JF. They’re about a minute's walk away.
Yep, there’s a colony of Gentoo penguins. Look out for Pablo, he’s notoriously cheeky.
Yep, the centre is fully wheelchair accessible. Just a heads up though, mobility scooters are not permitted.
There’s disabled access throughout and carers are entitled to a free ticket. You can also pre-book special Quiet at the Aquarium sessions – SEA LIFE opens an hour early on certain dates so it’s nice and quiet for visitors with autism and other sensory conditions.
National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham is open daily from 9:30am-6pm, so there’s plenty of time to make a day of it. Always good to check the official website though – entry times can change.
It’s located bang in the middle of the city at Brindley Place, just a couple of minutes’ walk from LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham.
National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham has a genuine commitment to conservation too. The SEA LIFE Trust does great work protecting the oceans, they’ve opened the world’s first Beluga Whale sanctuary in Iceland and run breeding and rescue programs for lots of exciting animals. So if you’re into ethical attractions, you’re fine with SEA LIFE.
