SCHOOL TRIPS
TO SEA LIFE BLACKPOOL!

COVID-19 UPDATE

On 20th March, in line with the Government’s response to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, we took the decision to close SEA LIFE Manchester. This decision was taken to protect the health and wellbeing of you, your teams, and our guests.
For any school that has paid for their visit between 21st March and 1st June 2020 and wishes to cancel a refund is available. The Schools Team is contactable during this time to support on all booking enquiries. Please contact via email on guestsupport.slblackpool@merlinentertainments.biz or phone 01253 375186.
