  • I went here with my boyfriend and it was a contributing factors to one of the best days I've had in the Trafford Centre. The staff are lovely, the layout is beautiful, it's very educational and I just life aquariums anyway. We had a little quiz sheet to encourage us to look around and learn more. Everything was lit up beautifully. They have rescue turtles (and terrapins that they took off the hands of people who didn't want them anymore), sharks, stingrays, axolotl, crabs, loads of things to list. It was a great experience, and when I told a member of staff I'd love to be a diver one day she took and interest and asked me questions about it making it just that bit more comfortable. I loved it here and I'll definitely come again.
  • Lovely trip with our little boy. It took about an hour to go around. The space around the entrance is lovely now ( i was there 4 years ago when they were renovating and it is so amazing now that all boards have come down). We even paid for the photos at the end, a little addition to the experience. There are plenty of interactive elements to keep the children entertained.
  • Took the kids here over bank holiday. My two year old and 6 year old really enjoyed it. It’s pram friendly so would also be perfect for babies as it’s great sensory activity watching the fish. They have toilets half way around as well as a small soft play area. There is interactive activities too so good for older kids. There is a small but non avoidable gift shop and there is a photo opportunity at the start but easy avoided if you want.
  • I was concerned that it was more of a kids attractions but it wasn't. You can see a lot of different species that were rescued, you can snorkel with sharks paying a bit more and you can also touch starfish and cleaner fishes that remove dead skin from your hand ( this is a free option!) Overall nice experience. Really loved it
  • I would say this is just about the perfect exhibit in terms of length for little ones. My kids are both under 3 and were engaged in everything right up to the end. It's not the cheapest of places, especially as you pay over £20 per adult, but at least under 3's are free. There's no food available here, which surprised me, so keep that in mind when you get to the end!
