The National Sea Life Centre in Brindleyplace is a popular tourist attraction which features over 60 displays of various sea and freshwater creatures. It boasts the worlds first transparent 360 degree tunnel which provides spectacular views of an ocean floor, complete with stingrays and sharks and other fish and marine life.
The one million litre ocean tank also has giant green sea turtles which are often a favourite with visitors. The building was designed by Sir Norman Foster.
The diverse and colourful displays along the tour route of this unique building give the visitor a close look at sea life from a perspective they would probably never see in real life. This is a popular destination for school tours and groups.
The National Sea Life Centre also breeds seahorse, is home to a Giant Pacific Octopus, crabs, lobsters, otters and many species of fish.
