#travelwithkids – SeaLife Brighton

Hello and welcome to #travelwithkids, a brand new linky brought to you by the lovely Ickle Pickle and myself.  This linky is for anyone who enjoys family-friendly travelling from days out to road trips to city breaks.  We are very excited to find out about new places to visit all over the UK and beyond and aim to create a rich archive full of interesting finds.  To join in, simply link up a post using the Inlinkz tool at the foot of this post; it doesn’t have to be a new post, it just has to fit the #travelwithkids theme.  It would be lovely if you used our #travelwithkids badge, which can be found below, but this is not essential.  The linky will go live every Wednesday at midnight and run until 8pm on Sundays (I must apologise for this one being late – I had to take a trip to the emergency dentist last night when I would usually have been working on this post).  We will leave comments on all posts as well as sharing on Twitter. Enjoy!

Today, my sister and I took the boy to SeaLife Brighton.  The weather was glorious and, as we walked down to the beach from the station, the view was lovely.

SeaLife Brighton is easy to find.  From the station, it is no more than a 15 minute walk (even when accompanied by little legs), there is plenty of parking nearby, and buses stop within reach too.  On foot, as soon as you spot the pier, you know you are not too far away!

Admission prices are quite steep on the door at £17.50 for an individual ticket, but if you plan in advance and book online, the cost is quite significantly reduced.

 The boy has been twice before and enjoys looking at the fish and other underwater animals, and also likes to take his own photographs of them.  However, his favourite parts of the aquarium are those that are interactive.

There are more of these than ever before at the moment, with the new Jurassic Seas section.  He also loved to watch the sharks and giant turtles swim over his head in the glass tunnel.

There is lots to see at SeaLife Brighton, though it isn’t a full day out in itself.  However, its location is perfect to team it with another activity for a proper day out – the pier and Brighton Wheel are on its doorstep, and the shops and museums are just a few minutes away.

Thank you for having us, SeaLife Brighton; we had a lovely morning.

Smiles and Trials

  1. We love Sealife in Birmingham and have been to the London one once, I think it’s a great way to introduce children to a whole different world. There are normally deals to be found on tickets too which helps #travelwithkids

  2. I love a good SeaLife center, we’ve just been to the one in Blackpool which has a great new Ray section. My favourite so far though is the one in Hunstanton as they have rescued Seals there too and a nice outdoor section.

    • Absolutely, I definitely think an outdoor section is what’s missing from most Aquariums but then my kids are so active, they love to be outdoors so that may be why. Thanks for linking up 🙂 #travelwithkids

  3. We love the Sealife centre too, I agree its not a full day out. The only one we go to that is a full day out is Weymouth. But we do love them all. 🙂 Great photos, love the one in the dome. 🙂 #travelwithkids
