  • I really enjoyed this place. On a rainy day we could easily have spent over two hours there. Lovely exhibitions. Lots of useful information. Great cafe. Friendly staff. Loved it. 
  • A great day out with the children! Such an enjoyable and educational experience! A full day spent looking and exploring the aquarium ! Great value for money!

  • A great place to head. 7 of us enjoyed the day here going round the aquarium - especially the Ray section where you can touch them. Learned about lots of local sea life. The team also offered us crazy golf for free, which was great. We all enjoyed the course. It could, however, do with some minor fixes and tidying of the courses. The numbers on the course weren't visible. But we all played just fine. The food in the cafe was nice but for all of us being students, it was pricey and not worth the money paid - £1.50 for a can of pop was steep. However, an overall enjoyed day.
  • For such a relatively small aquarium (compared to some of the larger, city-based ones), there is certainly a lot to see here! My personal highlights included the Ray tank/enclosure (where you were actually allowed to touch the Rays (but *not* any other fish)) and the "lab", which housed a number of younger versions of things visible elsewhere (baby seahorses, anemones, moray eels, jelly fish - and more!) There is a café and gift shop, but we didn't partake of either. The tickets we purchased were, I think, about £8, but they allowed for multiple trips around the displays.
  • Great little café, can sit outside with dogs
  • Very nice aquarium, good place to learn about the local fish. Some parts require updating (signage)
  • Outstanding, world class. What it lacks in scale it far than makes up with quality.
