SEA LIFE is a great children’s day out in Birmingham in the Midlands with lots of activities, including:


Interactive Rockpool

Creature Talks

It’s great to wander around on your day out and discover the amazing creatures we have but taking in a talk by one of our SEA LIFE experts can really add to the experience. Hear amazing facts about all the different creatures we have and watch some of them being fed.

4D Cinema

4D Cinema

So you’ve learned about our creatures and seen them being it’s time to sit back and take in an amazing 4D film in our cinema. Not only will you see the film in 3D you will also encounter smells, bubbles or snow and even get splashed! Great family fun!


360 Degree Ocean Tunnel

The star of the show and surely the highlight of your day out will be when you dive under the waves into our Ocean Tunnel. Sharks, Turtles, Rays and Tropical Fish will be swimming all around you in the 360 degree Tunnel where you’ll get a fish eyes view of the Hawaiian themed tank.

Soft Play Area

When the kids have filled their heads with learning fishy facts what better way to reward them than letting them play in the underwater themed soft play area. You can even unwind with a tea or coffee in the picnic area while keeping an eye on them. The kids really love this area as it’s a real fun thing to do.

Here’s some top tips to make sure your family aquarium day out at SEA LIFE Birmingham runs as smooth as possible:

Best value

Online tickets are the best price guaranteed meaning that you will get you the best value for your day out here in Birmingham.

We like to look after Merlin & SEA LIFE passholders so on your day out simply make your way to the priority entrance NOT the standard queue.

Off Peak

If you want a relaxed, leisurely day out it may be wise to consider off peak times for those paying on the day. If however you book online there is a fantastic £10 ticket option if you arrive after 3pm
