  • Pull eel! Pull eel! We have been here a lot to play with the cuddly eel toy. The baby lobsters are fascinating. And it's very cheap to get in. Only a quick thing to do but worth popping down if you're in the area
  • Small research institution offering insight into lobster breeding and sustainability. Lovely staff and nice place to spend an hour. Sponsor a lobster and get updates on its growth and release. Meet the Expert tours (min 4 people).
  • Well worth a visit! Adopted the cutest Lobster and you get to name it!
  • Small but very interesting. Good for a rainy hour.
  • Very interesting, with some cool displays and information. Relatively expensive for such a small place though.
