  • I visited here with my husband and 3 year old son. He really enjoyed it but it was expensive for the size and amount of time we spent there, it only took about an hour and half to see everything.  more »
  • This is a great place for children and it's interesting aswell as good fun to Watch the fish. Doing the rubbing on the walls is good fun too. Although the otters are a little bit stinky, which is normal for otters, they are excellent to watch and they love to be watched and show off to a crowd. It's clean and well presented with a good layout. Entry fee is a little steep and gift shop prices are way to much. But I wouldn't let that put you off. Just don't buy their expensive gifts. It's possible to come and go all day if you want to go back after you have left also. Worth a visit if you have not been before.
  • This is a must for folks with small children. I watched them. spellbound, them and me! There are so many gliding creatures to spot, and some not so fast. Apart from terrapins and masses of fish of all kinds, there are seals and otters and charming marmosets (I think they are called) Well worth a visit.
  • Buy the ticket online as you get a discount... 10% off if im not mistaken. Nice little aquarium with a variety of fish. Place feels cold so dress warm. Plenty of space to park cars outside but you have to pay. Highlight of the visit was feeding the seals while they jump in the water doing tricks and following commands. Tickets are expensive for the time you spend there.. I will not be going back any time soon BUT it my 3 year old had had a lovely time there.
  • The sea life was good and there was a decent range. However the whole place felt very tired. Considering the £10+ entry fee per adult the place didn't feel well maintained. It could do with a good refresh and clean. The cafe was okay, as before in need of a clean and refreshing but mainly over priced. On the whole the staff were good but the cafe staff were not overly attentive. Wouldn't visit again in a hurry.
  • FISH ARE FRIENDS YET YOU KEEP THEM IN TANKS? fish want to be free and happy just as much as humans but aquariums like this steal innocent fish and other sea creatures away from their families + natural environment just to make money. These places are a disgrace. FREE THE FISH 😭
