SEA LIFE Brighton


SEA LIFE Brighton is an aquarium attraction in the English city of Brighton. Opened as Brighton Aquarium in 1872, it is the oldest operating aquarium in the world. The attraction was bought by Sea Life in 1991.

Designed by Eugenius Birch, the site opened as an independent aquarium in 1872 after construction began in 1869. The construction cost was £133,000 at the time (equal to about £5.5 million). The Aquarium was bombed during the First World War and was reconstructed afterwards.
