We visited here today as it was hammering it down outside and I think everyone else decided to do the same. The que outside was long, although you could hide under the canopy from the rain. Once in, it was very busy and a little sqashed walking round and trying to get close to see things. It was also very... More

We were looking forward to this as somewhere for the grandchildren to go in the summer holidays. We were so disappointed. They let so many people in at once and it's not very big so we were jostled along all the way round. We were unable to see everything. We could have returned any time during the day but we... More

I came here with my husband and two children; three and one. We paid in advance so got a discount. Its only a little place so doesn't take long to get around. Though you can get a stamp and come back as many times as you want throughout the day. They have different talks and encounters throughout the day including... More

For anyone who loves animals, wildlife and marine life. It isn't huge and it took us about an hour to round, but then another hour to go back and see everything again. The turtle and Sharks are the highlight of the journey and we could sit and watch them swim for ages! The staff are friendly and helpful with 'touch... More

We always go to every animal attraction we can find when on holiday so we weren't going to miss this. It was a nice way to pass some time and there were some very lovely jellyfish and of course the underwater tunnel is always fun. I think it would be good for families with kids (certainly that was the general... More

We took our 4 year old here in the summer and were very happy with what we saw, all the exhibits were well kept and satisfying to the eye, the interactive crab and star fish part was a hit with our son who got a hands on experience. Led by a charming memeber of staff who was engaging. The Shark... More
