Sea Life Centres; Timed Tickets to Beat the Queues
Particularly during busy times it can be worth taking advantage of timed tickets for those that are able to book online. This option allows you to bypass the bulk of the queues by simply making your way towards online tickets area at the entrance point. Queues to enter popular Sea Life Centres during peak times can be anything up to a few hours so it can be worth planning your visit in advance.
Whilst timed ticket sessions will not completely avoid the queues, it will substantially reduce your waiting time. Please note for priority entrance at London Sea Life Aquarium, you will need to opt for a ‘Priority Entrance Ticket’.
Sea Life Centres 2 for 1 Vouchers
There are plenty of 2 for 1 vouchers for Sea Life Centres that are available throughout the year that offer one free entry when accompanied by a full paying person. Whilst you cannot take advantage of timed ticket entry, (so queues can be long during peak times), these can offer value for money at quieter times of the year.
Please note that 2 for 1 vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online ticket discounts or any other offers.
