  • It was very interesting, not the biggest aquarium I've ever seen but still enough. We enjoyed the seal show and I would definitely come again.  more »
  • We both visited this attraction when we were in the area, although it's not a massive place it was well worth a visit to see the otters and seals alone, the keepers give a questions and answers talk o...  more »
  • We always love going to the aquarium - from the variety of attractive fish to other beasts and similar! Today we saw a horseshoe crab - quite an unusual sight in such a place - and the otters were ver...  more »

  • Amazing day out. Myself, my partner and her two kids (9 and 11 w/ ASD) all had a wonderful time. The seal display was great and the front of house staff member gave us helpful information about areas and times we might want to avoid so as not to stress the kids. The cafe staff were also very nice and helpful and let us order just before closing time. Would highly recommend!
  • A pleasant few hours looking at the exhibits in the sea life center. The tail on the seals was good and informative and would be suitable for all the family. Staff were friendly and approachable. The seals were great fun and a pleasure to watch them get some exercise.
  • I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. A range of creatures to interact with and the seal presentation is not to be missed! Shark guy knows his stuff but then all the staff seemed very knowledgeable and pleased to interact with visitors. The otters are really sweet even though they are quite pungent! The only downside is no car park and the council run car park charges £1-20 an hour which seems quite a lot as many other car parks in Northumberland are free.
  • Great morning at aquarium seahorses are amazing and the talk about them very good the seals were brilliant and glad to hear rescued seals are nursed back to health and returned to the sea .thank you
  • Good day out for the family my daughter and niece were memorized with the fishies - fairly pricey for what it is but kids love it so worth it
