Autism Friendly Thursdays @ Sea Life Manchester

As part of our ongoing commitment to creating a fun environment for all, every Thursday afternoon during term time will be Autism friendly*

From 2pm until 6pm, we will be turning off the music and making the lighting throughout the attraction as standard as possible to provide a more comfortable SEA LIFE experience for those with autism and other sensory requirements.

We will also be placing extra trained staff around the attraction who can answer any questions and provide assistance. 

Advanced booking is advised.
