Rainforest Adventure

Step out of the Victorian Arcade and into the hot and humid rainforest to experience what life is like beneath the tropical treetops. Winding through the roots and tree trunks, rainforest rivers are home to some spectacular fish. As you step through the roots of a giant tree our Anaconda welcomes you to her home. Follow her trail towards a mystical ruined temple and you'll come across our magical Water dragons, colourful Poison Dart Frogs and fearsome Piranhas. As you explore our rainforest, don't forget to say hi to our group of rescued terrapins, they're waiting to meet you! Did you know? Around 58, 0000 square miles of forest are lost each year to deforestation. That's equivalent to 36 football pitches each minute!

Auditorium & Ocean Tunnel

Take a seat in our beautiful Victorian auditorium built in 1872 and see our incredible 750,000 litre ocean display! Here you can get great views from above of our 3 species of sharks, rescued sea turtles, rays and tropical fish. This is where you can also board your glass bottom boat experience. Purchase a ticket at admissions at the start of your visit to get even closer to our incredible creatures. After, take a stroll under the sea as you experience our ocean display through an amazing glass tunnel. Shoals of glittering fish swim along side you whilst our enormous Green Sea Turtles Lulu and Gulliver glide slowly over your head!

One Display from Two Perspectives!

Seahorse Nursery

Seahorses may sound like mythical creatures but you can see just how real and amazing they are! See the seahorses grip at seagrass with their curly tails and suck up tiny shrimp with their straw-like snouts; if you're lucky you may even hear their unique "finger clicking" sounds as they feed. Find out more about seahorse breeding program at SEA LIFE Brighton.

Male seahorses are the only male animals to give birth!
