Rainy Day Activities: Discover tropical fish at SEA LIFE Brighton
Brighton & Hove, East Sussex
Take a deep breath and see if you can walk through the world’s largest under-sea glass tunnel at SEA LIFE Brighton.
With multiple zones set within original Victorian architecture, SEA LIFE Brighton is bound to take your breath away. Walking underwater is a strange sensation at first, but soon you’ll get used to having a diver’s view of giant turtles and sharks gliding above you in the underwater tunnel.
It’s the world's oldest working aquarium and is home to two 78 year-old old green-turtles, Lulu and Gulliver - rather fitting, we think. Another spectacular attraction is the 170,000 gallon lagoon; climb aboard a glass-bottom boat tour and look below at a wreck complete with real circling sharks, colourful tropical fish and equally colourful coral.
Elsewhere, you can touch crabs and starfish in an interactive rock pool; watch a jellyfish disco; and take a jungle tour through Amazonian rainforest waters. In fact, with over 1,500 creatures and 50 displays, you and the family will be having so much fun you won’t even know you’re learning at the same time!
