I visited with my 11 year old son and friend who was doing the 'diving with sharks' experience. The exhibits were well spaced out and spotlessly clean. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and there was lots of opportunity to see talks and feeds to learn more about the fish. The shark tank is huge with some very large sharks... More

Heard a lot of negative about the Blue Planet, that's it's expensive and small etc but I don't agree with them. Got 20% off admission due to a voucher and Emma got in free and she loved it! Lots of stuff to look at and we went around feeding time so all the fish were being nosey to see if... More

A family day out with my 1 year old daughter and the wife and slightly disappointed but could be so much better. Firstly the customer service could be better, the guy behind the desk said nothing about what was on offer or even where to go. Give us a map, I mean you've charged us £30 show us what is... More

If you like to explore and see some wonderful fishes up close, then this place is nice to visit, been a few years since I last came and i feel like it was missing something, but can't think of what it is. But overall, it was nice.

Although my daughter has wanted to go here for years, I had always been put off what I thought was a high price to look at fish. However we decided to give it a go. I booked the tickets on line and had to pay a booking fee, even though like others mentioned I had to print off my own... More

Paid just under £30.00 for 2 adults, luckily our little boy was free of charge otherwise it would have been even more of a rip off. It only took us 40 minutes to walk around everything, and we weren’t even walking around that quickly. I have been before, about 6 years ago, and there seems to be a lot less... More

Hi we visited this week and after paying nearly £50 for admission for the family we were then told at the till that we had to pay an additional £2.50 for parking! The car park was practically empty and the only sign that said anything about the car park charge was only visible on the way out of the aquarium.... More

We were pleased to find reduced price admission online but not pleased with the £1.50 booking fee. For what? I paid for the paper and ink to produce the tickets. On arrival we were told there was a £2.50 parking charge which was in the terms and conditions- I didn’t see it-, on the barriers – they were up- and... More

I visited here yesterday with my two daughters,granddaughter,great granddaughter and other family members, some of the party had booked on line others had not. It was a surpise for my great granddaughter who was 3 the next day. She really enjoyed the experience but the adults thought it rather expensive. We had to slow her down a bit or else... More
