Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Brighton Sealife Centre – Timmy Time Fun!

The Brighton Sealife Centre is famous for being the oldest aquarium in the world still running since its opening in 1872. Despite its age the centre is still one of the biggest tourist attractions on the south coast and keeps visitors of all ages thoroughly entertained whilst teaching them all about the world beneath the waves. This weekend we took Little Man on his first – and no doubt not his last – trip to the Brighton Sealife Centre to take part in their Timmy Time celebrations.

The centre itself is much bigger than you expect and has a vast array of marine life on display. Little Man was fascinated and spent most of his morning signing “Fish” at everyone and everything. The Glass Bottom Boat Ride is a must, largely because its entertaining watching everyone step on the glass bottom nervously as they get on board! The short journey across the tank gives you an amazing view of the creatures below – which you can view again from the glass tunnel later – and your guide provides you with great facts about what you’re looking at. We were a big fan of the huge sea turtles and the giant ray who got up for us even though it was still a little early for him.

From the 21st July until the 2nd of September there are daily Timmy Time inspired activities on at the centre to help promote “Timmy’s Seaside Rescue” which premièred this summer, and if you visit between August 6th and August 22nd you can meet the sheep himself! Every hour from 11.30am to 4.30pm Timmy will be appearing inside the centre ready to meet his fans. He was meant to be there from August 3rd but sadly he got lost on the way. Thankfully Little Man didn’t notice!

So book your tickets now and get your little ones down to Brighton to meet Timmy this summer. Tickets are available on the door, or in advance from the Sealife Centre website. You can now buy “Timmy’s Seaside Rescue” on DVD from Amazon.
