Rather quaint and small and the price of £28.90 for family of 4 might put some off. But when you consider you can come and go all day it's not bad value. Quite small and only takes around an hour to walk round. But if you do the kids activities would take quite a bit longer. Has a good variety... More

I really loved the clown fish. The highlight of the aquarium is the long tunnel where you can see loads of fishes and a shark. I got a lovely green screen photo of myself.

If you are considering visiting then check for any deals or voucher codes or you will feel cheated. There were dirty tanks which made it hard for you to see what fish were in... More

Friendly staff on welcoming and a lovely place to visit. The fact that you can go back as many times as you want in a day makes it great value for money. We went back at the end of the day to see the open top tank as it was surrounded by school children when we first went. The jungle... More
