I had read the reviews on here and nearly didn't go, however we gave it a chance and I'm glad we did! We went Thursday in Feb half term, and yes it was busy but this was to be expected. I paid £46.50 for 2 adults and 3 children, aged 9, 5 and 2 we all had a lovely time.... More

I have been to Blue Planet Aquarium on a few occasions, due to having an interest in sea life, knowledge of creatures & seeing them close up, and it didn't disappoint. It had plenty to see, and the glass tunnel was great, to see sharks, stingrays, and other amazing sea life swimming all around & seeing staff hand feeding the... More

I paid £35.50 for my 14 year old son and me and was very disappointed. I have been here many times in the past and enjoyed it, but I think they have now just got greedy. £2.50 to park your car, what was worse you only paid if you were dumb like me to mention it. Even the free coffee... More

Like many others have said, this is a very overpriced hour out! (Not a day put!) We took our baby son and it cost us £16.50 per adult and £2.50 to park the car!! We questioned the car park fare at the till and the young lad claimed that all attractions do this. Not in my experience they don't. Coffee,... More

Good afternoon here but a little dated and over priced. Enjoyed it but cafe looked closed, drinks way over priced and they took £2.50 off us at check in for the car park ticket, then we didn't even need to pay as the barrier was open all day. Felt a little ripped off.

We had taken our grandson here for a nice day out as I had been here before with my children, as we get through the door there were 2 men at the tills and typically the queue we were in wasn't going anywhere because the man was faffing about while the other queue had no problems. After the tills they... More
