A nice local aquarium, but not really worth the money? a very small aquarium with a lot of bass in a pond to touch and then a few different varieties of fish, but nothing much there! We were in there for about five minutes!

really nice little aquarium displaying some local marine life that is normally hidden from view beneath our sea. There's also a chance to get hands on and feed some of the fish which is pretty cool.

A BIG Thank You from all of the Lyme Regis RNLI Lifeguards for letting us pop in today during our 'patch walk'! Super friendly! Great way to see what lives under the sea locally, you'll be amazed! Thanks again.

I visited this aquarium with my wife and young daughter and can't recommend it highly enough. It's only small but it's packed with native sea life and the gentleman who runs it makes sure that you get a hands on experience to remember. My daughter was delighted to both stroke a star fish and hand feed the grey mullet. She... More

I have been visiting this aquarium since I was a child and I believe that with the added delight of being able to hand feed the mullet it is even better now than it was back in the day. Max is an excellent host who happily introduces you to the fish that are his star attraction. Within a few minutes... More

We decided to incorporate the little Aquarium into our Lyme Regis mooch when we reached the end of the Cob. We were greeted very warmly by the manager and escorted to his proudest exhibit, the grey mullets. They were born in the Aquarium and he has trained them to respond to a hand over or in the water. They surge... More
