Took 3 children here, paid over £50 on tickets and all I can say is what a waste of money, it was just so boring, very little interactive material.

Its a good attraction, but they are better sealife centres out there. The children enjoy it for a limited time. The learning aspect is good. Not sure it's worth the cost for a family of four.

From our experience anyone of any age can enjoy it. Love the fact that they support wildlife as well!! Very... More
