  • I don't know how they can justify charging the same price as other sea life centres. This place is tiny we managed to walk around in an hour. That was us taking as long as possible. Definitely not worth the money. Better off going to sea life in London as it's bigger and has more to see.
  • Great place to take the kids, especially on a rainy day. Not the largest aquarium in the world but good enough. Season pass is worth it if you're local.
  • Very educational for all ages, Regular talks on the aquatics and able to hold. Very polite and helpful staff with great knowledge of the aquarium. Only down point is the entrance price, slightly to high
  • FOOD POISONING!!!!!!! Stopped off in the restaurant part yesterday for some lunch. I had fish and chips, my wife had scampi and chips. I was a little shocked at the price of the food. We live in London and thought that £10 for scampi and chips was a bit excessive. Food came on a big plate and plenty of it. My fish itself was decent, much better than I was expecting however, the batter was terrible. It was wet and soggy with no crunch or crispness to it. My wife's scampi was okay but definitely not £10 good. It got worse once we go home. My wife starting telling me she felt sick and then during the night it hit her. She was up being sick from about 3am onwards being sick. As this was our main meal for that day and the only thing that we ate different things, as well as it being the only food we had that could you sick, I can only imagine it was the scampi that gave my wife food poisoning.
  • Great for the kids and the price is good too. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We have had an annual membership now for 3 years for our two boys (3 and 5).
