  • I have seen mixed reviews on here for this attraction. It is a little expensive but most things are. It’s a good place to visit and our kids like it, it’s clean and they seem to look after things well...  more »
  • I have visited this attraction many times over the years, to be honest nothing has changed. You can get through the actual aquatic scene in half an hour, however if you eat here then an hour. There is...  more »
  • Not the most welcoming reception I have to say. £14 per adult and no concessions. It’s really small inside and you can walk around it in 10 minutes. Very disappointing indeed.  more »
  • Great afternoon out for the family. The centre itself isn't the largest, but that being said it is just big enough to keep the little ones entertained before there attention wanders. Me and my other half regularly take our baby using the annual pass, the lighting and brightly coloured fish in many of the tanks give a great sensory experience for her.would thoroughly recommend the centre.
  • Its a smaller aquarium but well laid out and good sized tanks making everything easy to see. Regular talks by the staff that seem to care about what they do there. My little boy loves it!
  • Brilliant. The kids love it. We have a yearly pass so it's a cheap day out, we do it monthly! Parking isn't cheap outside though. Staff are generally all helpful, especially Elise who went out her way to help our kids last week and all round knowledgeable!
  • Nice day out. Parking is not cheap, but wandering around the centre is nice. Brought my 1 year old who loves running around the place (it wasn't that busy) and had a great time looking at the fish, especially the rays.
  • Very nice place with many interesting aquatic and non-aquatic species. The place is very clean and animals well feed and cared about. I would improve things like drawing fluorescence lines on the floor to follow so you get to see the whole thing and not miss things like us. I would add more interesting stuff about each individual on the outside of the window so people can learn stuff about them. Overall the place was a very nice experience for my family considering our 2yr boy.
