I am planning a visit for my DH birthday with the kids. We are an hour away so would like to make a day of it. Is there anywhere to have/buy lunch close by or is there a cafe at the centre? What else can we do at the immediate location?
It's in Brindley place so there's plenty of places to eat - pizza express, carluccios wagamamas, some gourmet burger places and others. We decided to go last minute and had to queue for a while and it was freezing so if you know what day you want to go, i'd definately suggest buying ticket online - it saves time and moaning as well as money! There's a 3d cinema on site and a soft play area too, check out the feeding times before you visit so you don't miss out on those. Have fun!
Sorry to hijack your thread, but I have been looking at the Sealife Centre and was wondering how far away it was from New Street Station. If we went, it would be at the end of a three hour train journey, so I wouldn't want another long journey.
Really? That's disappointing. I want to do something different with the kids this half term and I am bound by where public transport can take me. in Aberystwyth that really means Birmingham, or maybe Camarthen but I don't think there's much but shops there.
There are so many better things to do in Birmingham than the sea-life centre, why? why?
Things I would do in Birmingham with little ones over half term that are easy to get to from New St Station- Dimsum in China Town, science museum at millennium point, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery always puts on interesting stuff for the holidays. Sure, it isn't London, but little kids don't seem to notice.
