2. SEA LIFE; 2 for 1 Vouchers

There are plenty of valid 2 for 1 SEA LIFE vouchers that are available for use throughout the year.  To secure FREE entry voucher holders must be accompanied by a guest paying the standard price ticket but cannot be used in conjunction with online ticket discounts. Many promotions now stipulate that vouchers should be redeemed in advance alongside pre-booked tickets and can’t be used at secondary attractions such as SEA LIFE at Chessington World of Adventures or Alton Towers. More information is available at SEA LIFE; 2 for 1 vouchers.

3. SEA LIFE; Midweek Madness Sale, (ends 12 October 23)

Look out for this midweek sale that offers 40% off standard on-the-day tickets for select midweek visits when you book at least one day in advance. This sale is running at select SEA LIFE attractions until 12 October with discounted tickets available for visits taking place on the following dates; 19 & 21, 26-28 September, 3-5 & 10-11 October 2023.  Ticket availability will vary due to capacity so book early to avoid disappointment and can’t be used with any other voucher or promotion.  This midweek sale is running at the following attractions; SEA LIFE London, Birmingham, Bray, Brighton, Great Yarmouth, Hunstanton, Loch Lomond, Manchester, Scarborough & Weymouth, (sale end 5 Oct for Loch Lomond).

5. SEA LIFE/Kellogg’s 2 for 1 Offer, (2023)

6. SEA LIFE; Parent & Toddler Tickets

We are seeing some availability, at select attractions such as SEA LIFE Birmingham, for this off peak toddler ticket that provides discounted combined entry for 1 parent/carer and 1 child, (5 years or younger) when booked online in advance. As children under 3 years can already gain FREE entry, here’s a chance for young families to pick up a bargain. This Parent and Toddler ticket only runs at select off peak times so worth checking if it’s up and running when planning your visit.  More information available at SEA LIFE Parent & Toddler Ticket.

9. SEA LIFE Local Passes

Select SEA LIFE attractions across the UK offer local passes that can secure substantial savings over the year.  For regular visitors that can offer value for money over the year plus secondary perks and benefits can offer extra deals.  Opt for either an Explorer Pass or Explorer Plus depending upon whether you can visit off-peak or prefer great access to the attraction.  More details available at SEA LIFE Explorer Pass/Explorer Plus.

10. SEA LIFE; National Rail 2 for 1 Promotion, (2023)

National Rail run a 2 for 1 promotion that is valid at select SEA LIFE attractions for those travelling by train.  This can offer value for money but look out for restricted ticket allocations during particularly busy times of the year.  More information is available over at National Rail 2 for 1 Promotional Offer.

11. Free SEA LIFE Tickets with Beach Clean Ups, (2023)

Look out for organised beach cleans at select attractions such as SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth or SEA LIFE Scarborough that helps improve their area and previously came with free tickets to the local aquarium as a thank you to volunteers.  This can be a great way to do your bit for the environment and pick up free tickets to a SEA LIFE to boot!  We’ve also seen Canal Cleans at SEA LIFE Manchester too so worth keeping in touch with your local attraction to see if they have any events coming up for a chance to pick up complimentary entry.  More information available at SEA LIFE; Unusual Promotions & Offers.

12. SEA LIFE Park; Cadbury Big Ticket Savings, (2023)

Look out for promotional multi-packs of Cadbury chocolate that offer savings of up to 50% off full price tickets at a range of Merlin Attractions including SEA LIFE attractions.  Valid until 31 July 2024, (exclusions apply), this promotion has changed slightly this year where voucher holders can gain up to 50% off the full standard price ticket where the discount depends on the attraction period & time chosen.  More details available at Cadbury/Merlin Big Ticket Offer.

12. London SEA LIFE Aquarium

The London SEA LIFE Aquarium is ideally placed next to the London Eye making it a popular choice for visitors. For those that book online there are savings to be made on individual and Multi Attraction Tickets for those planning to visit a number of top attractions, (Madam Tussauds, London Eye & Shrek’s Adventure! London & Dungeon).

More details available at Cheap Tickets for London Sea Life Aquarium.

13. SEA LIFE; 2 Free Tickets with The Sun

Each year, The Sun teams up with SEA LIFE to offer you the opportunity to claim 2 free tickets in this newspaper promotion.  Unfortunately this deal has taken place for 2022 but you can find out more details within our guide to 2 FREE Tickets to SEA LIFE with The Sun.  We’ll bring you more details as they come in for 2023.

14. SEA LIFE & Merlin Pass

A Merlin Pass offers entry to all 11 UK Sea Life Centres PLUS access to other Merlin Attractions such as LEGOLAND Windsor, Chessington, Warwick Castle & the London Eye. Look out for restrictions on standard Merlin Passes at select SEA LIFE attractions during busy times and due to capacity limitations, you now need to pre-book tickets in advance.  Remember that your Merlin Pass also offers discounts off any purchases made too!

15. SEA LIFE; Timed Tickets to Beat the Queues

Particularly during busy times it can be worth taking advantage of timed tickets for those booking online. This 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. Please note that whilst timed ticket sessions will not completely avoid the queues, it will substantially reduce your waiting time. For priority entrance at London Sea Life Aquarium you will need to opt for a ‘Priority Entrance Ticket’.

  1. John Romer says:

    I think this stinks: I’ve just booked 4 tickets with Tesco Clubcard for 1115 entry and now I go to book 2 more with Network Rail they are only offering 1215 or later – totally useless to me – but if I go the regular website the 1115 slot is still available for non discount bookings.

    Nowhere does it say clearly they may restrict available ticket times with these discounts, so it is easy to find you have used one booking discount but can’t get the same time slot with a different discount. I am really unhappy with this shabby way of treating customers.

    • Hi John, sorry to hear you are having problems combining the two Sea Life deals with timed ticket entry. Might be worth contacting the Sea Life attraction you are looking to visit to see if they are willing to combine your booking manually? We at Topdogdays are independent of all visitor attractions so unfortunately we cannot assist, we simply let you know where the deals can be found, Liz

  2. Hi. Are there any discounts for one adult and two children on Saturday 20th August 2022

    • Hi Dennis, unfortunately this is a peak time for Sea Life so this limits the promotions available. The Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher isn’t valid at Sea Life until 22 August, the KFC excludes dates between 1 & 31 August and only limited availability, (between 1 – 22 August), if you were considering Clubcard vouchers. There are discounts to be had if you book online in advance but think you might struggle to find a 2 for 1 voucher at this time of year, Liz

  3. Hi, Want to attend today with my two boys but rest of our family group have an earlier time, can I use my standard ticket & attend same time with rest of family?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi, SEA LIFE run timed ticketed sessions to manage queue control so it will depend on whether they have any available time sessions spaces left that coincide with when your family have booked for. You could always check at the gate to see if you could join them but there is the possibility that sessions are booked up, Liz

  4. Edna Sharpe says:

    I would like to use the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher at Sea Life Birmingham this summer and would like to know if there are any dates that I cannot use this voucher?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Edna, the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 vouchers are not valid at any SEA LIFE attraction from 2-5 June or 27 July – 21 August so if you can work around these dates this summer, that should work. I would always say it is worth booking online in advance to guarantee entry particular at popular times of the year, hope this helps, Liz

  5. Charlie Daly says:

    Can I use Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher with a joint ticket for sea life and legoland discovery centre?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Charlie, unfortunately you cannot use the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher, (or indeed any 2 for 1 voucher), alongside multi/joint attraction tickets for LEGOLAND Discovery Centre & SEA LIFE. 2 for 1 vouchers can only be redeemed against single attraction tickets, (so you could use it when purchasing standard price tickets for just SEA LIFE or LEGOLAND Discovery Centre), Remember 2 for 1 vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online ticket discounts and must be redeemed against full price standard tickets, hope that helps, Liz

  6. Hi is the any discount for people with disabilities

    • Hi Jemma, my understanding is that there are no discounted tickets for visitors with disabilities although there is a free carer offer, (specific documentation required), Liz

  7. Any discount for NHS staff?

    • Hi Arun, there are often Sea Life offers running for Blue Light card holders, worth checking on there for further details, Liz

  8. Any discounts sea life balloch today 10th January 20222

    • Hi Liz, hopefully you managed to use one of the 2 for 1 vouchers listed on our site as many of these vouchers are valid at Sea Life Loch Lomond. Alternatively there are online discounts available if you were able to book in advance, Liz

  9. Sharon Buckle says:

    Hi any discount codes for 28th july please.

    • Hi Sharon, you could try the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher that is valid at SEA LIFE on the date of your visit, (excludes Friday 30th & Saturday 31st July 2021 plus every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in August 2021). This offers you half price standard ticket entry and is available on a range of promotional cereals and cereal bars. It is recommended that you redeem in advance to guarantee entry. There are also other 2 for 1 voucher that you can access if you prefer, hope this helps, Liz

  10. Hi
    Do you do discounts for NHS or ex forces?

    • Hi Sam, Blue Light cardholders can pick up additional discounts on SEA LIFE tickets if booked in advance. I can also see that on the Brighton SEA LIFE page it also states that ‘For military or NHS discount please speak to your HR team who will be able to point you in the direction of your rewards hub or portal. You will need to book your tickets through this online booking portal, in advance. Please note, employee discount cannot be redeemed on the day at the door.’

  11. Debbie marley says:

    Hi , planning on going to sea life centre this coming Tuesday taking my 14 yr old and 9 year old grandson and their Mam and myself of course is there a promotion code for a discount please , quite expensive at full price

    • Hi Debbie, you could look out for promotional packets of Kellogg’s cereals and cereal bars that come with a 2 for 1 voucher that you can use at Sea Life Centres. Whilst this promotion is not valid for use Friday 30th, Saturday 31st July 2021 or every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in August 2021, it is valid for use on the date of your visit, (subject to availability). It is recommended that with any 2 for 1 voucher, you redeem in advance to guarantee entry particularly during the busy school holiday period. 2 for 1’s can be used alongside full price tickets only but not in conjunction with any other discounts or concessionary tickets. Look out for promotional 2 for 1 vouchers within the following kellogg’s products; Crunchy Nut, Corn Flakes, Coco Pops, Crunchy Nut Clusters, Rice Krispies, KRAVE, White Chocolate Coco Pops, WK Kids, Rice Krispies Multi Grain cereal packs. Inclusive snack pack products include Fruit Winders Multi Packs, Rice Krispie Squares Multi Packs, Coco Pops Bars, Frosties Bars and Rice Krispies Bars Multipacks, Nutrigrain Multipacks only, Liz

  12. Kylie Corso says:

    Toddler ticket is brilliant value but only seems to be available at Birmingham Aquarium now. Must have just changed as I found it a few weeks ago.

    • Hi Kylie, yes the toddler ticket for Sea Life is good value for off-peak visits. This parent and toddler ticket option does tend to come and go for each setting so worth checking back another time. Which Sea Life where you looking to visit?

  13. Rang twice and just left on hold 20mins tried through Twitter no reply
    Just want to know if you are excepting Sussex attraction vouchers and how do I book them??

    • Hi Nikki, are you looking to visit SEA LIFE Brighton with this vouchers? If so, you can find more information over at visitsealife/brighton/tickets/promotions/that gives you more information about 2 for 1 vouchers/other promotions and how you can redeem them. Hope this helps, Liz

  14. Leslie Kinley says:

    Are the Carex Hand Wash offers of Half price entry to Sea Life at Weymouth still valid or have they finished?

    • Hi Leslie, Carex hand wash have been running these 2 for 1 promotions for a number of years, so worth double checking which year your offer relates to. The 2020 promotional offer is running until May 2021 and Weymouth SEA LIFE is included in this offer but remember to book your tickets using the promotional link before you go particularly as space is limited due to Covid19.

  15. It would help more if there were a wider range of sea life centres involved in promotions eh Edinburgh world sea life centre.

    • Hi Naomi, many of the Sea Life promotions relate to Sea Life Loch Lomond Acquarium if that’s an option over to you. Unfortunately there is not a Sea Life Centre based in Edinburgh at this point in time:(

  16. Amelia Jones says:

    What’s the best deal I can pick up at Birmingham Sea Life over May half term?

    • Hi Amelia, book online with Birmingham Sea Life and you can pick up savings of up to 40% off standard price tickets. Book in advance for the best prices and look out for cheaper options if you opt for an afternoon visit, (tickets available from £12.75pp). Alternatively look out for 2 for 1 vouchers on promotional packets of Kellogg’s cereals & breakfast bars that can be used at Birmingham Sea life, Liz

  17. Hi, I’m looking for a valid 2 for 1 voucher for Sea Life in Birmingham over half term? Any ideas?

    • Hi Killyleagh, try the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher that is valid at Birmingham Sea Life Centre over half term. This offers the voucher holder free entry when accompanied by a ticket holder paying the full on-the-gate price ticket. Have fun:)

  18. kayleigh fairey says:

    I’m going blackpool next week is there a 2-1 voucher codes I can use for me & my family please

    • Hi Kayleigh, you can pick up a 2 for 1 voucher on promotional packets of Cadbury chocolate that can be used at Blackpool Sea Life, (excludes 20 – 31 August 2016). More details available at 2 for 1 Merlin Voucher. Alternatively try the 2 for 1 vouchers available on promotional packets of Kellogg’s cereals that are valid at Blackpool Sea Life.

  19. kayleigh fairey says:

    I’m looking to going to (Madam Tussauds & Shrek’s can u help me with a discount price can I have a disability child

    • Hi Kayleigh, Madame Tussauds London offers 1 free entry for a carer accompanying a child with a disability, (you will be required to present documentary evidence of entitlement to Disability Living Allowance for children under 16). Shrek’s Adventure London also offers one free carer accompanying a paying disabled visitor.

  20. would like to know prices for 2 for 1 tickets to london aquarium and shrek adventure. ..2adults and 1 child of 12year and another child 4yrs.

    • Hi Tricky, 2 for 1 vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with ticket purchased online nor can they be used against combination tickets for the London Sea Life Aquarium & Shrek’s Adventure! London. In general terms, 2 for 1 vouchers offer 1 person free entry when accompanied by a person paying the full on-the-gate ticket price on the day and can potentially offer you savings. You would need to ensure you had enough valid vouchers for each attraction, (you would need to hand over 2 vouchers at each attraction for a family of 4). Whilst this would mean you would need to join the standard entrance queues, if you are looking to visit out of peak season, hopefully you queue time wouldn’t be too long. Just check your voucher for any excluded dates before you set off. Hope this helps?

  21. Hi i would like to know how much would it be for the shrek adventure plus the sea life aquarium for a family 2 adults a child of 12 and a 4 year old…

    • Hi Tricky, prices can vary throughout the season so it will depend upon when you are planning a visit. However, I can see that the current online price sits at £120 for a family of 4, (2 adults and 2 children under 15 years) that offers access to both the London Sea Life Aquarium and Shrek’s Adventure! London that you can be purchased online from either attraction.

  22. 2 for 1 Sealife in Blackpool request.
    But also for any attractions if possible

    • Hi Piotr, you can pick up a Grown Ups Go Free Voucher, (technically a 2 for 1 voucher) on promotional packets of Kelloggs cereals that is valid at Blackpool Sea Life. If you are looking to visit a number of Blackpool attractions, then worth considering a Blackpool Resort Pass as this offers discounted entry on top attractions in the area.
