  • Luckily I found a voucher to visit here but even £8.50 was overpriced. The place had a smell of rotten eggs, it was dark and dingy and looked old and tired. We were out of there in 20 mins. Waste of m...  more »
  • We visited the aquarium with our two young children for a family day out. We paid just over £30 and I can quite honestly say it was a complete rip off. We walked around it in 40mins!! The whole place ...  more »

  • The fish look healthy, well looked after and the pools are all clean. It's an easy place to find with plenty of local parking nearby, right on the beach front. Staff are very knowledgeable, passionate and full of information when needed. Children can touch the crab and starfish in a special pool and there is a fossil search exhibit at the end. There are plenty of feeding times to check out and loads of engaging talks throughout the day. The place itself is quite expensive and becoming rundown but all in all a good place to go.
  • Friendly helpful staff. Easy access for the disabled. Kids will have a fabulous time here
  • Fab place to take the kids and for adults. Lovely little outdoor park with water fun too. The kiddies can have a play while you check out the sea view. Cafe attached has nice food.
  • Good value for money. Kids loved it
  • I'm sorry but this is not worth £44 for three kids and two adults. Admittedly the stingray and two sharks were great to see but one of the large aquariums was empty and stank, also the walk through at Portsmouth is so so short and simply not worth the £44. Also, customers should be warned that one of the exhibits is closed and at least owed a discount on the pricey entrance fees.
