  • A good little place to take young children. Fun and interesting. It gives them something to talk about on the way home. 
  • We visited with two little ones aged 4 and 1. They both loved it, especially the Rays! The cafe is really good too. 
  • We've been coming here for years and has always been a must for our daughter. Interesting and interested staff who are always there to answer questions and add interest. Do you know how many tonnes of...  more »

  • 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.
