We didn't know what to expect as prices seemed more than reasonable! However from start to finish we really enjoyed it. All staff were polite, friendly, educational and helpful - from till point right through to cafė. The aquarium itself was well laid out and interesting to meander through - taking us about an hour. Loads and loads to see... More

Having never been before we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised I have to say. We brought our toddler and after his initial trepidation, he grew brave, touched the glass, tried to catch the fish and really enjoyed himself. We learnt some interesting facts on the 'show and tell' type talks they had at various areas in... More

Really well worth the visit. Staff are super helpful and friendly, make sure you check out the feeding and educational times as these are rally great. It's not huge, so you can also get round it in a couple of hours and then hit the beach!! Touch pool area was also great....one not to miss for all ages!!

My wife and I took my 9 month son and our niece who is 3. We all loved it and my son loved the tunnel where the fish swam over head, he did not know where to look!

We spent a very wet saturday here with a four year old and on year old who both throughly enjoyed it. We got to see seahorses, stroked a starfish, watch jelly fish. Lots of fun was had by all. We also managed to pay for the outing using tesco clubcard deals. Might be worth checking if this offer is still... More

I took my Granddaughter out for the day we went in I paid the 9.75. Went in a she screamed real tears hated it. So I turned around and left. Shame as I thought she would love it. Would hate to see someone else waste that amount of money for a few minutes.

Spent a really lovely afternoon at the Sea Life Adventure. It's looking a little tired in places but some excellent exhibits and the staff (particularly Aaron!) were amazing.
