SEA LIFE Brighton, the oldest operating aquarium in the world, is proud to announce the launch of a state of the art new attraction Day & Night, which will open its doors to the public in May after a £2.7 million renovation.
The first of its kind in the UK, Day & Night offers visitors the chance to experience the 24-hour wonder of a coral reef as it transitions through the day.
Day & Night will showcase the UK’s largest collection of sharks and rays in the UK along with a plethora of fascinating marine life in both a day and a nocturnal environment. Home to over 840 stunning sea creatures, the impressive 700,000 litre display will house: Black Tip Reef Sharks, Zebra Sharks, Honeycomb Stingrays and Fantail Sting Rays amongst many other spectacular reef dwellers.
