My family and I spent a wonderful hour on New Years Day in the Lyme Regis aquarium discovering the different types of marine life which inhabit the bay just beyond. Our guide was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable demonstrating that exotic tropical specimens are not a prerequisite! We were even able to hand feed the grey mullet which have been carefully...

We stumbled across the aquarium after walking down the Cobb. Very informative, friendly owner who was full of facts. Would really recommend feeding the mullet and holding the starfish. Recommended for adults and child.

My mother and I stumbled across the aquarium took away at the end of the Cobb. And although we're both adults, holding the starfish transformed us both back to children, it was lovely! And the owner was very enthusiastic and friendly!

This is a fascinating aquarium. The owner is very friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to welcome us and to ensure that we had an interesting visit. Hand feeding the grey mullet was a memorable and enjoyable experience. Definitely a hidden gem and thoroughly well recommended.
