National SEA LIFE Birmingham

The Waters Edge, Brindleyplace, Birmingham B1 2HL

Be transported into an amazing underwater world at The National SEA LIFE Centre! Located in the centre of Birmingham, the Aquarium this year celebrates 20 years of memorable days out. Open daily from 10am (check their website here for more details).

Dive in at Penguin Ice Adventure and marvel at the cheeky antics of our Gentoo penguins, before meeting a crab or starfish at our Interactive Rockpool. Discover the majestic jellyfish, take a peek at our Asian short-clawed otters and experience the 4D Cinema before venturing into the depths of the rainforest to encounter deadly piranhas and poison dart frogs.

Then plunge underwater as you walk through the UK’s only 360° Ocean Tunnel, surrounded by our majestic sharks, shimmering fish and Molokai the giant green sea turtle!

Plus you can now get closer than ever before to some of the world’s most intelligent sea creatures and meet Bev the Giant Pacific Octopus in our new exhibit for 2017, Octopus Hideout!
