Go deep behind the scenes!

There’s a lot going on beneath the surface at the National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham and now you can team up with our expert aquarist guides to go deep behind the scenes and discover how we care for our marine and fresh-water creatures.

You’ll have privileged access to the working areas usually closed to the public where you can learn about our extensive breeding, research and conservation programmes and see how the fish food is prepared!
