The Aquarium is located along the cobb in Lyme Regis. We went on a lovely boat trip and afterwards spent some time in the Aquarium on our walk back. It's only small but really worth popping into.....highlight is hand feeding the grey mullet! Our kids really loved it and wanted to go back again! We spent quite some time feeding... More

A really good little aquarium featuring a wide variety of seacreatures from around local shores. It was particually great to hold a starfish as well as feed the mullet from my hand. I really recommend a visit to anyone visiting Lyme Regis!

Really enjoyed our visit to the aquarium. Feeding the Mullet was great fun for the whole family. As it was early and quiet, our daughter was able to hold a starfish and a lobster. The owner was informative, charming and kind. It was a real treat for all of us.

Not the biggest aquarium in the world but immensely enjoyable nevertheless. The highlight is definitely handfeeding a tankful of mullet who hoover the special food from... More

An unique experience hand feeding the grey mullet. The fish were so gentle as they ate the food in my hand. Amazing to see large sea bass up close. I will certainly visit this aquarium next time I visit Lyme Regis

This is a really lovely aquarium, with some great hands-on opportunities and chances to see the fish right up close. I took my toddler who was fascinated by it all and even had the chance to hold a star fish in her hand! Owner was friendly and helpful, and it was a nice break from the beach and a chance... More

This aquarium has local fish and sea creatures, it was nice to see and learn about them. It is only small so doesn't take long to get around it, and is priced accordingly. For an extra price you can also feed the mullets by hand which is very unusual as these fish are usually very shy. The owner was very... More
