Sea Life launches at Intu Trafford Centre

Simon Donohue

Merlin Entertainments' £6.5m Sea Life aquarium has now opened within in a 36,000 sq ft unit at the Intu Trafford Centre's Barton Square site.

The aquarium – the first at a UK shopping centre – includes tanks filled with more than a million litres of water and features more than 5,000 creatures, 30 marine displays, and an underwater ocean tunnel.

Intu says the attraction is designed to increase dwell times at the Trafford Centre and attract a new category of visitors.

Other leisure activities at the Trafford Centre include a Legoland visitor centre and an Odeon cinema.
