Over priced. The tour begins with a rope barrier preventing you from going any further until your forced into posing for a photo. Plenty of things to see but feels a bit small. I have been to the Blue Planet Aquarium and that is massive compared to here.

we have visited several sea life centres around the country and found this one of the best. The exhibits were great and the shark tunnel was the highlight. The staff were very friendly and you get a game of mini golf at the end.

Full experience with lots to see. Interactive for the kids. The walk through tunnel beneath the sharks and rays is brilliant. A little pricey - we had some discount so paid £19 for 2 adults and spent just over an hour walking through the planned route. Gift shop and café at the end if you need it.

Aquariums are expensive. I have visited a few including, the Deep and Blue Planet. They are very educational and great for little ones and sea life creature fans. We went in December and it was very quiet which ment we were able to take our time. With this said, we were weren't there more than an hour. I used our... More

For starters, we received a 50% off admission from a Corn Flakes cereal box promotion or something to that effect, so be on the lookout for discount tickets if you're planning to go. Even the Sun newspaper has discounts throughout the year or better yet, the Blackpool Pass. So, with paying around £25 for a family of 5 to enter,... More
