Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre

Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre


At SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth we offer a truly unique alternative for your school trip whilst fitting perfectly with the KS1 and KS2 curriculum!

We have over 1,500 amazing creatures for your class to learn about including sharks, penguins, clownfish, rays and many more. Your class will come face-to-fin in a JAW-DROPPING tropical ocean display.

You are free to attend our regular talk and feeding demonstrations and get hands-on in our interactive rock pool experience where you can touch a starfish and hold a crab shell and there is a Free Lesson plan available which is downloadable prior to your visit. Or you can upgrade to a VIP tour - a dedicated SEA LIFE expert will escort your school around each display, giving fascinating facts and answering any burning questions this could last for approximately 1.5 hours.

It's always helpful to know that teachers get two free planning tickets once they have made a booking! This is to help teachers get a feel for the building and plan their activities in advance and on our website there is a downloadable risk assessment of the centre.
