We visted with our 2 children. The eldest went to do the shark encounter and absolutely loved it while the youngest and I got a very informative guided tour. Everywhere was clean,there was an amazing variety of species and we couldn't fault the staff at any stage. Thank you for a lovely day and we are already looking forward to... More

We booked online so got a reduced price, 2 adults and one baby £27. The price would have been acceptable should the visit have lasted longer than an hour. Once in the aquarium not a single member of staff was to be seen to offer knowledge. I was disappointed to get to the sea horse tank and find only one... More

First of all I had high hopes bringing my son here who is wheelchair user. The phone call I made before the visit was well received and the person I spoke to very helpful. However I was disappointed from the moment I entered the car park. Visiting this attraction actually demands that you pay a £2.50 parking fee! Why? I... More

Visited Blue Planet today 13-09-2014 with family and grandchildren, it was a truly amazing place. After going to chester zoo yesterday at first thought it a touch on the costly side, after the running costs were explained by our very informative guide, I did not have a problem any more. Try and pick up free kids vouchers, also take the... More

Very interesting but I would say it's over priced and you have to pay £2 parking.. There is a lot of different fish, sharks, sting ray etc. would be better if it wasn't £16 pp

My partner and I visited today as we have always wanted to go. It was very interesting with a huge range and variety of fish etc. The main tank is amazing, as well as the two tunnels we stood in the theatre and watched for a while as itbhas a huge window. My only down side would be that it... More

It's a good aquarium with some decent exhibits. But being honest it's nothing we haven't all seen before and it will take you no more than an hour to walk through (even reading all the info and signs as we did). There's an on site aquarium at Alton towers which is no worse than this, which when your being charged... More

An amazing place, a must visit regardless of whether you are a couple, family or visiting solo. Attractions are most definitely worth the entrance fee. Personal highlights for me were Shark Tunnel, Octopus Tank and generally the whole experience. I love everything to do with fish and in the process of buying a tropical fish tank, so this sort of...

Visited recently with our little girl and had a lovely family outing. The aquarium has lots of attractions to entertain little ones and staff were lovely. Not a huge attraction either so good for very little ones who lose interest in things quickly.
