  • Having spent a trip to the aquarium every summer of my childhood, I was keen to take my kids for the first time. We weren’t disappointed! It’s small but well worth a visit. The feeding off the mullet....  more »
  • Smallest aquarium we've visited in a long time, also a very limited selection of marine life. However, very reasonably priced. Only one member of staff who was eager to comply with Covid regulation...  more »
  • Lots of interactive things to do and lovely engaging staff! The kids loved holding the starfish and feeding the fish!  more »
  • This aquarium is small but has a personal family touch. The children loved feeding the mullet and were there for ages! They held a starfish and enjoyed seeing all the other fish. No toilet as right at the end of the Cobb so go in Lyme Regis before you walk the Cobb. It is reasonably priced and the fish food is an extra £3 per pot. Recommend!
  • The aquarium is an absolute must if you are visiting Lyme Regis! The boys spent ages feeding the fish and the owner could not have been nicer, showing us around, talking about the fish and where they come from and getting starfish and crabs out for us to hold and have photos with. Very reasonably priced. My 3 year old had to go back 2 days in a row!
  • Fantastic place to get a bit closer as you properly hold a starfish and feed the fish. But only 4 stars as I felt it was slightly overpriced. Note, no concessions for seniors and no cards accepted. Overall though the passion of people who work there makes it a nice place to visit.
  • Lovely aquarium! The staff was lovely and showed us how to put our hands into the fish tank to feed those fishes and showed us to hold the starfish too. It’s fun and great experience for kids. Great place to visit!
  • It's a lovely intimate experience. It's family run with very knowledgeable and friendly staff. It's a great place for families as it's very interactive - you get to hand feed the fish - which is unique experience, and you also get to hold star fish
