Sea Life Birmingham to close for multi-million pound redevelopment

Birmingham's National Sea Life Centre will close for the first time in its twenty two year history to begin a multi-million pound transformation which is set to run into 2019.

The aquatic attraction, based in the city's Brindley Place region, will undergo extensive redevelopment beginning on 5th November. The doors will be closed for six days and the centre will re-open on 11th November. Further work will be carried out separately.

The detail of the changes haven't been disclosed, however bosses are reassuring the public that the attractions wildlife will be continually monitored. There's no expectation for any animal to be affected by the work. Speaking to Birmingham Updates, Amy Langham, General Manager at the National Sea Life Centre, said:

"We’re always looking at new ways to excite our guests and evolve the attraction. The remodelling will enable us to house new creatures in the future, some of which will never have been seen before in the UK. 

"We’ve really grown over the past few years since the introduction of our famous penguins, and we know that this large scale build will provide brilliant new experiences for all of our guests, both new and returning."
