SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth

SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth has a different mix of species as residents compared to other SEA LIFE centres, which is always nice if you’ve visited one of the other sites. If you have, you’ll probably have experienced the wonder of the glass ocean display tunnel before – well, there’s a cracking one here. Not literally cracking. That would be a problem with 250,00 litres of water behind the glass.

In our own words...

This way for an adventure through an underwater world

The Lost City of Atlantis is the backdrop to this underwater world, home to over 1,500 amazing creatures, including juvenile blacktip reef sharks, an inquisitive green sea turtle and a pair of African dwarf crocodiles – the world’s smallest crocodile species. Aww.

The staff really know their stuff here too, so listen and learn. Did you know, the Black Tip Reef Sharks give birth to live babies instead of laying eggs? And stingrays evolved from sharks 150 million years ago? Stick that on your pub quiz cheat sheet.

Everything’s separated into interactive zones. At Jelly Invaders, you’ll have an alien-style encounter with moon jellyfish and learn all about their lifecycle. Under the Raydar is the spot for watching rays glide through the water and you can find out how it feels to touch a starfish at the Interactive Rockpool Experience. Then, meet the playful Humboldt penguins as they swim and socialise together.

Make the most of your trip (and learn a thing or two) with fun talks, animal feeding sessions and an adventure quiz.

SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth

Located on Marine Parade, SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth is easy to get to. Google Maps will keep you right if you’re arriving by car and it’s a pretty quick walk from Great Yarmouth train station. The usual opening hours are 9:30am - 5pm but check the official website to be sure.

Pre-booking is a must and it’s cashless, so bring your contactless card. You can revalidate your booking and change your dates up to three times, as long as it’s 24 hours before you’re due to be there.

There are disabled toilets and disabled access throughout the centre. One of the viewing platforms at the penguin enclosure is located up a set of stairs, so it isn’t wheelchair accessible, but this doesn’t spoil the experience cos everything’s viewable at ground level. Disabled guests are entitled to bring one carer for free – you should book this ticket online at the same time.

The centre is committed to conservation through the SEA LIFE Trust. If this floats your boat, ask staff how to get involved.
