4.0
Located at the end of the historic "Cobb" (harbor wall), Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium educates visitors about the fish and marine life of the area.

The aquarium also displays nautical artifacts and shows a presentation about the area's history, including the Cobb. This aquarium is a great rainy-day destination.

  • £6 adults £4.50 kids is a little much for a place so small. Informative and interesting but way over priced. Hand feel g the mullet was fun but again £3 for a small pot of flakes is expensive. £30 for what was a hr and only because we dragged it out to get money's worth. Nice but I wouldn't go again
  • What an amazing experience to be able to feed grey mullet by hand! It's an absolute must for kids of all ages (I'm 44!)
  • A great place to visit quite expensive however I loved hand feeding the mullets it was a great experience
  • Small but so much to look at. Enjoyed feeding the fish by hand, would definitely recommend!
  • 100% the best Aquaruim on south coast if your childrens happyness counts. Real little gem !!!
