Families looking to spend a festive day out with loved ones should head to LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre and SEA LIFE Manchester any time from now until 24th December for a day filled with bricktacular, spectacular and sea creature fun!

Just next door to each other, both of these fantastic attractions offer great value for money at £17.50* online for a combi ticket and ensure a day out is planned with ease.

Festive Fun at SEA LIFE Manchester

At SEA LIFE Manchester, guests will be in for a treat as they go on a festive fish hunt, coming face to fin with a Snow Flake Eel, Humbug Fish, Angel Fish, Star Fish and even a Turkey Fish!

The Turkey Fish, otherwise known as a Lion Fish, has a red and white striped body and can grow up to 15 inches in length. An incredibly colourful and eye catching fish, children will not be able to take their eyes of it as it beautifully glides away in its home this festive season.

It’s not just the usual residents in the tanks this Christmas. On the evenings of 17th, 18th, 22nd and 23rd December, guests can see the diving mermaids in the tropical ocean tank. Mermaids will grace the water in a spectacular dive with the sharks and Ernie, the giant green sea turtle. Little nippers will also be treated to a special meet and greet with a mermaid!

Visitors will also have the chance to enter a prize draw to win a very unique and memorable experience; the chance to get up close and personal with Ernie and feed him his favourite Christmas dinner of brussel sprouts.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Manchester

The very first guests on 1st December will be first in line to open the giant LEGO® Advent calendar! Full of a selection of festive, fabulous and fantastic treats, your trip will start with a surprise and set you for the day of fun ahead.

Take part in festive LEGO® Master Model Builder sessions and get really creative with an array of coloured bricks to make your very own unique LEGO® presents, Christmas trees, mince pies and so much more! Children’s minds can run wild.

The LEGO® Manchester Christmas markets and other local festive scenes will be on display in MINILAND®’s Winter Wonderland.

There is fun for all the family with seasonal treasure hunts too. Elves have gone missing and are lost in MINILAND®; what’s more, the elves have dropped all the Christmas presents in the centre too! Can you find them?

To top the day off, there will be daily meet and greets with Bertie, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre’s Mascot, so don’t miss out!
