Sea Life Centre planned for Manchester’s Trafford Centre

Merlin Entertainments has submitted a planning application a new Sea Life aquarium in Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

Plans were submitted to Trafford Council last week for a site of approximately 2,000m² within the Barton Square area of the shopping centre.

If given the go ahead, Merlin would build Britain’s 14th example of the aquarium chain, adjacent to their existing Legoland Discovery Centre attraction within the Trafford Centre.

It would be the second Sea Life Centre to be built in the Lancashire area, following the long-standing branch at Blackpool.
