I used to visit this place growing up before moving to Australia 15 years ago. For the first time since returning I went back and I'm extremely happy to say its still wonderful. We were shown around by Max who helped me feed the incredible tank of mullets. It's a beautiful local place with a huge amount of heart.

A 'must see' local attraction, with a variety of exhibits - fish, photographs and items recovered from the sea, plus an amazing opportunity to feed the grey mullet from your hand. Owner very welcoming and friendly, and gave lots of information and anecdotes. Informative display and photographs of the filming of the French Lieutenant's Woman and Jane Austen's Persuasion, and...

We went to Lyme Regis just for a day trip and fell across this sweet little Aquarium. Our 17 month old son loved watching the fish being fed. The staff were very friendly too.

Although it is quite a small aquarium, the owner was extremely friendly and welcoming. Our daughter loved feeding the mullet and also got to hold a starfish! Would have given it an excellent if the price was a little lower.

Absolutely put the aquarium on your list of things to do when in Lyme Regis!! A friend recommended it to me having never been to Lyme before and I'm so glad we went! The owner was on the door when we arrived and gave us a warm welcome. He then let us hand-feed the mullet fish and entertained us all... More

Although a bit apprehensive about feeding the mullet, it was an amazing experience. Children would love doing this and the owner allowed you to take pictures. The owner was extremely friendly and very informative, I learnt a lot about marine life in a short space of time. He was very caring and passionate about the fish making sure you got... More

A friend recommended the aquarium, we'd visited Lyme many times and not even registered it's existence. The owner is extremely engaging and knowledgable. You can hand feed grey mullet, for a small additional cost, our daughter absolutely loved it. You can also hold a star fish, which along with feeding the fish made this a memorable trip. We will be... More

Mullet feeding along with the other little hidden gems and history the place has is a must see when in... More
