Should the weather take a turn for the worse families can still enjoy the sea when they come to Brighton, they can visit the city’s Sea Life centre.
Set back from the Palace Pier, the underground showcase of natural wonders includes 57 seperate displays, all guaranteed to captivate.
In any single visit you are likely to see more than 150 species, including giant turtles and even sharks. So when someone says you get sharks in Brighton, this is what they are talking about!
Perhaps the most impressive moment is the walk through the underwater tunnel, all of a sudden you are as close as you can get – without a wetsuit.
For history buffs, it’s also the oldest operating aquarium in the world.
Currently, the centre is running an Amazonian tour – which features the fishes of the Amazon, including the notorious piranha, and also the region’s poison-dart frogs.
And when the fun’s over, you can always pop across the road for fish and chips, or turn toward the sea and take in life on the promenade.
Life is a beach in Brighton, but when the sun doesn’t shine, don’t worry; there’s always plenty to do.
Open daily from 10am
Last Admissions: Monday – Friday 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 5pm
Centre Closes: Monday to Friday 5.30pm, Saturday and Sunday 6.30pm
