Sea Life Centre - Blackpool

Local Attractions
Sea Life Centre

Distance from the cottages 6.5 miles


Sea Life Blackpool has good access throughout but there are some inclines and a boardwalk that manual wheelchair users may need assistance with. The touch pool is a particularly good facility where visitors can handle and learn about some of the sea creatures at the centre.
The lift controls are accessible for wheelchair users. As the main floor of the centre is via a lift, there is a designated member of staff on duty each day who will stay with wheelchair users in the refuge area in the unlikely event of a fire.
