WEYMOUTH Sea Life Adventure Park and Tower offer guests a world of discovery and fun.

The park itself at Lodmoor is home to more than 1,000 sea creatures including crocodiles, penguins, seals, sharks and green sea turtles.

Visitors can stroll through an underwater tunnel where they will find a 180-degree view of awe-inspiring sharks, colourful corals and majestic sea turtles.

Adventure seekers will want to jump on the log-flume ride over at Escape from Crocodile Creek, where they will find six Caimen Crocodiles.

There are also four rides over at Adventure Island and penguin lovers will have the chance to watch Humboldt Penguins feeding.

After a few hours enjoying the park, guests can take a stroll two miles along the beach and visit the Sea Life Tower.

The tower is 53m high and offers 360-degree panoramic views of the coastline, which guests can sit and enjoy as the viewing capsule slowly rotates.

The Adventure Park is open from 10am – 5pm and the tower is open from 11am – 5pm. Visitors can save money by booking a combined ticket online for £15.50. Alternatively tickets bought on the day cost £22.85 and under-3s go free.
