Team LDC Manchester with SEALIFE if you can, it’s worth doing both in a day if you have 2-3 hours spare as you get around them pretty quickly. They are both next to each other and it’s a great double day out.
The swimming with sharks experience is incredible
Don't miss the turtle feeding experience.
With sharks, clownfish, turtles and rays, there are as many unusual characters at SEA LIFE Manchester as at a night out at the Hacienda circa 1989. And it’s a lot less sweaty too.
SEA LIFE Manchester is an underwater home to over 2,000 creatures, including zebra shark to jellyfish – and a pair of giant green sea turtles, Ernie and Cammy, that rival the Gallagher brothers when it comes to star quality.
It’s split into 11 different habitat-themed zones like Turtle Beach, Rocky Hideout, Shark Shipwreck and the impressive Ocean Tunnel (the view is top notch). Find out how it feels to touch a starfish at the interactive touch pool experience, then visit the lair of the Japanese spider crabs – they grow up to 3 meters from claw to claw. That’s more than a meter longer than Anthony Joshua.
Keep an eye out for special events here too. At different times during the year, kids can watch real (ish) mermaids swim with sea turtles, take part in treasure hunts and get guided tours from Peppa Pig. Hope she stays clear of the shark tank.
And if you want to do your bit for the local environment, join staff and community members on one of their regular canal cleans. Help out for a couple of hours and you get free entry to the aquarium – not bad at all.

Most people spend around two hours exploring everything SEA LIFE Manchester’s got to offer, but you’re welcome to stay as long as you like.
Pre-booking isn’t essential, but it is wise. You’ll get the best price and guarantee your entry. Makes sense to us.
SEA LIFE Manchester doesn’t have penguins, however other SEA LIFE centres including Birmingham and Scarborough do.
SEA LIFE Manchester is easy to find – it’s in Trafford Palazzo, close to the Trafford Centre and right next door to LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre.
If you’re travelling by car, the Trafford Centre car park has thousands of spaces (including parent and child and disabled).
Opening times are usually 9:30am-6pm but check the official site to make sure.
There’s disabled access throughout the centre, except for a few places (like the top of feeding tanks) where the layout doesn’t support it safely. Carers get to enter for free and if you have a hidden disability you can wear a green lanyard and staff will offer extra assistance if you need it.
Ask staff about the SEA LIFE Trust when you get there – it carries out lots of great conservation work worldwide. Find more information here.
