My two daughters had a really special time at this lovely place. They loved watching us feeding the mullet fish and my eldest daughter was over the moon to hold a starfish! The owner went out of his way to make it a special experience for them and I highly recommend it!

Family 4 including 2 children aged 9 and 10 with 20 % off voucher (found on website ) plus 2 tubs of food for the Mullet.... just over £20. Owner took time to talk to us and explained about the Mullet. ..what an experience..felt like little suckers kissing your hand. Kids also handled the starfish. Lovely little aqaurium family run...

Incredibly kind and friendly owners made this a magical visit for our toddler who was able to touch tame mullet, hold a starfish and see lots of other local marine animals. The aquarium is just the right size to be neither too short nor too long a visit, highly recommended for families.

This is a small aquarium made great by being different. The owner has trained grey mullet to eat out of your hand, which was a very big hit with our kids. We also all got to hold a starfish which again was a hit.

Excellent but small aquarium displaying much of what you might see in local waters and shores. Feed the mullet and hold a starfish! Knowledgable owners spend time with you and clearly enjoy their work. Definitely worth a visit!

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

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.

Really friendly and worth entry just to feed the mullets. Really interesting and a bit different plus get to hold a star fish and owner is friendly and helpful plus full of information. Our 11 yr old boy was fascinated and we all really enjoyed.
