Great Yarmouth Sea Life Centre has picked up a regional gong in the first national attractions awards run by popular family leisure website Day Out With The Kids.

The Birmingham-based online guide launched in 2010 is used by 17m people annually to plan their fun days out.

Thousands of families voted in its first’ever Family Favourites Awards, and Great Yarmouth Sea Life won 47% of votes for the best attraction in the East of England for education.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Sea Life general manager Terri Harris. “Providing a fun, educational experience is our primary goal.

“Learning about the amazing lives of sea creatures sparks what for many can be a lifelong passion, and helps raise support for vital marine conservation efforts.”

The centre has around 50 aquarium displays featuring everything from shrimps and starfish to seahorses, sharks and a green sea turtle, and also hosts a colony of Humboldt penguins.
