  • Some stunning fish and display tanks however it was all rather basic, I was hoping to see some more exotic fish and coral. But would definitely recommend going for a look around!
  • The fish were great, got food at the cafe. It was good. I'm pretty sure there was a dead turtle in the tunnel part though...
  • kids love it. go on the guided tour or its a bit short
  • A lovely Aquarium. Very small for the price (£12 per person). But some lovely fish to look at. Took us about 30 minutes to complete including the gift shop! So not a day trip.
  • Not the largest place but lots of different sea creatures to see and glass tunnel to walk through. Very good
