  • Good couple of hours on a wet morning. You need to do the quiz to make it last with the kids but plenty of fish to keep them interested. You can also buy combined tickets for the steam train and cruise - all from the same place.

  • Brilliant place for kids. Only downside is the nearest toilet is outside near the train track. A fair distance for a toddler who needs a toilet close by
  • Nice little aquarium, better than I was expecting. Not that big but entry price reflects this. Nice variety inside, all look well kept. Letting the tortoises out for a stroll on the walkways was nice.
  • Lovely family day out. Children love the walk under water tunnel.
