Great attraction for young children - use a money off voucher though!

We visited the Aquarium in a group of families with young children (all under 4). The children were all enchanted by the displays and especially loved the open area where the fish... read more

We visited the Aquarium in a group of families with young children (all under 4). The children were all enchanted by the displays and especially loved the open area where the fish and turtles were clearly visible swimming around. It does feel like quite a small Aquarium but for small children this was perfect. A lovely visit on a wet... More

We came with our 2 daughters to see the mermaids, they absolutely loved it, they enjoyed seeing the sea horses and turtles but that was about it, I'm glad I didn't pay the full amount to get in as had a voucher for the mermaids, still £28 which we paid for 2 adults I feel was very expensive and if...

I visited today with my wife and 2 daughters aged 9 & 7 they loved seeing and chatting to the mermaids but it really isn't worth the entrance fee and I was lucky as we had vouchers for children free, £14 per adult is extortionate as we had seen everything in about 30 mins. If you compare this place to... More

We have been to Bristol aquarium a couple of times now (a visit each year since by 4 year old started walking) and previously have loved it, but this time this was not the case. It cost over £20 for us to enter (one adult, one 4 year old and a 2 year old who was free!) and the visit... More

It was my first time in an aquarium, so I'd say I enjoyed the visit. It's not cheap at all, but for those who never been to an aquarium it's worth a visit. The place is very well maintained by the staff.

We took our 7 & 10 year old grandchildren to the Aquarium yesterday. We all really enjoyed it and found it very interesting. The big problem was the price, really too expensive!

This is a beautiful place to go to. Babys love all the colours and fish. Its a great place to get the kids exploring. And a great trip for a rainy day.

We popped in to have a look around on a rainy day in July. The displays are very informative, and it was interesting to see the incorporation of plants that the AQUARIUM had added, although a little perplexing. We made our way round very quickly as there didn't seem to be much going on!

I was surprised to see so many negative reviews of this aquarium. It is a little expensive but the exhibits are really well presented and the range of fish they have on display is pretty impressive for a city centre aquarium. I'll be going back.
