REVIEW: Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary

Scarborough Sealife Review


Scarborough is really lucky to have such a fantastic attraction, and personally speaking, I love a visit here to see all the weird and wonderful sea creatures on display.

The problem for most visitors is the price which, at around £16 each, I agree is a bit steep, especially if you have a family to pay for. The trick here is to be prepared and take advantage of vouchers and promotions.

If you pre-book on line for example ticket prices start at just £9.50, or you could look out for half price vouchers which are freely available in shops, hotels, and other tourist attractions. I have also seen these vouchers in newspapers.

If, like me, you are local you can buy an annual pass for around £13, using tokens saved from the local paper. This is well worth the money as this gives you unlimited access for twelve months.

Once you're in, you'll be fascinated by over 1,000 creatures including otters, sharks, seals, jellyfish, starfish, crabs, penguins, turtles, rays and my favourite, the weedy sea dragon.

There is an interactive zone, where you can stroke a starfish, a soft play area, a great barrier reef, a rock pool and an incredible ocean tunnel, where you can get the most incredible views of all the creatures swimming around.

There is a gift shop, and a restaurant, although for me the restaurant isn't on a par with the rest of the centre and could do with a makeover.

If you don't fancy paying the car parking charges, you can get a 3 or a 3A bus from town, which will take you there, and if, like me, you have a bus pass, it will cost you nothing. The buses are every 20 minutes, Monday to Saturday.

Overall though, the Sea Life sanctuary is well worth a visit, just remember those vouchers!
