One of the best Aquariums we've visited

We had some free children entry vouchers from school so thought it would be worth a visit for £28. We arrived around lunchtine so we ate first, there are quite a few places... read more

We had some free children entry vouchers from school so thought it would be worth a visit for £28. We arrived around lunchtine so we ate first, there are quite a few places outside the aquarium but are more expensive so we eat there, the food was very nice & quite good value compared to other places that we've been...

The Fish displays are fantastic, DO NOT eat there, the food is rubbish, and if you complain they do not answer you, they do not care, as long as they get your money.

We were amazed as soon as we walked inside, modern light entrance lobby leading you to go through a cave into the extremely well organised, spotlessly clean displays. How they manage to keep the tanks and pools so clean is a mystery and you can see that the fish are happy in their surroundings. Someone has mentioned the price being... More

The aquarium was clean and bright. Staff were friendly and exhibits were interesting, colourful and varied. However, we were in and out within 45 minutes so i dont think it really represented good value for money. When you spend £45 for a family you expect to be occupied for a good few hours and even stopping and looking at/reading everything... More

Visited with the family and although it's a lovely attraction we found it very expensive especially as we saw it all in about an hour. Parking nearby is also horrendously pricey. Unfortunately our visit coincided with a school trip.

Very well laid out with some gorgeous exhibits. I particularly liked the outdoor sections. Good selection of fish/marine life We had an extremely pleasant time. BUT It is very expensive for what it is. We had wandered round in an hour. We took our time and lingered at exhibits taking it all in but still spent very little time there.... More

Ok so when you are paying £14 for a ticket to an attraction, and you are like me and my Girlfriend, and can often visit an attraction in less than 1 hour - its always a worry. Having been to Bristol thousands of times, we thought we would check out the Aquarium for the first time last weekend. At £28... More
