Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre, Great Yarmouth

Attractions in Norfolk

At this SEA LIFE Centre you'll enter an underwater tunnel display housing tropical sharks, sea turtles and colourful reef fish. This year the centre welcomes a colony of Humboldt penguins, all bred at other SEA LIFE attractions. These endearing, sometimes comical creatures come from the coasts of Chile and Peru where there are estimated to be fewer than surviving 10,000 pairs. Colonies like this may one day provide a vital lifeline for this endangered species. Their disappearance would certainly be a tragic loss to the animal kingdom. Location: Great Yarmouth (South East)
