Max Leviston, General Manager of Sea Life Brighton comments: “The Ocean is vast and fascinating, but also quite mysterious – by hosting Ancient Oceans at Sea Life Brighton, we hope to help our visitors learn more about the history of the ocean and its creatures.

“Some of the creatures we have at our aquarium have existed for thousands of years, such as the Giant Nautilus, and it is incredible to see how they have evolved to the creature we see today.

“With so much to learn, experience and enjoy, I’m sure there will be plenty of children hoping to become Dinosaur Detectives – and quite a few adults too!”

Sea Life Brighton is open from 10am every day apart from Christmas Day. For current closing times or further information, please visit www.visitsealife.com/brighton.
