What to expect at National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham

Over 2000 magical creatures and the UK's only 360° Ocean Tunnel

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.
