About

The World’s Oldest Operating Aquarium

Let us take you on a fascinating journey through the original Victorian architecture of the oldest operating aquarium in the world. Based opposite the iconic pier, SEA LIFE Brighton was built in 1872 and features 5,500 mesmerising creatures including Rays, Sharks, Turtles, Terrapins, Star Fish, Seahorses and an Anaconda! Here at SEA LIFE Brighton you can see them all - from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic.

Experience the Ocean by Day & Night

The first of its kind in the UK, Day & Night offers guests the chance to experience the 24-hour wonder of a coral reef as it moves through the day in 750,000 litre display. Dance along the bio-florescent tropical shore and marvel in the beauty of coral reefs. Explore the caves of the deep and imagine yourself as a lionfish. Journey through our underwater tunnel or marvel at our floor to ceiling NEW viewing window and wave hello to the Sharks, Rays and Tropical Fish!  PLUS welcome back SEA LIFE Brighton’s much loved Green Turtles Lulu & Gulliver!

Take a ride on our Glass Bottom Boat Experience!*

Wow! Meet our amazing ocean creatures from a new perspective on our Glass Bottom Boat ride experience totally unique to SEA LIFE Brighton. Glide over the water and say hello to our inquisitive turtles and our jawsome sharks while our marine experts explain what makes them so weird and wonderful!

Up to six people can enjoy a ten minute trip over the Ocean Tunnel, but all guests must be from the same household/bubble, and face coverings/masks must be worn.

*You can add on the glass bottom boat experience for a small additional charge when buying or reserving your visit online- please book a slot at least 30 minutes after your entry time.
