SEA LIFE reopens doors with a splash

Visitors looking for aquatic escapism can head to SEA LIFE centres across England and Ireland from this weekend as doors reopen to visitors at eight locations.

Teams in Birmingham, Blackpool, Brighton, Hunstanton, Manchester, Scarborough and Weymouth in England and Bray in the Republic of Ireland have been working behind the scenes to ensure a safe return, with a number of measures now in place.

Guests will need to pre-book tickets online for a specific time slot before they visit, with social distancing measures including markers in every location to ensure groups receive the space they safely need.

Fixtures such as clear plastic screens at check-in desks and tills,  temperature checks at all entrances., and hygiene stations with hand sanitiser will also be in place throughout.

“We are really looking forward to welcoming guests back to all of our Sea Life sites across England and Ireland and as ever, the health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority,” commented Sea Life’s Craig Dunkerley.

“Each site is utilising an extensive range of safety measures, designed to ensure a happy, safe and healthy experience for all. I’m sure after the extended lockdown, many families, particularly with younger children, will be in real need of escapism, entertainment and a way of making happy new memories with those they love.

“I know our teams around the country – plus our site’s aquatic residents – are all looking forward to offering just that.”
