Go to a pet shop instead!

This is rather underwhelming and will not take long to complete. If it is a rainy day and you are stuck for something to do with small children then you could consider... read more

The whole place was really run down and dirty. Many tanks were empty. Many of those that had animals in them were labelled incorrectly. Some tanks were not illuminated (some visitors were using the flashlight on their mobile phone to try and see the insects). The water in a lot of tanks was cloudy. unacceptable presentation in the middle of... More

We went to the aquarium to escape the rain! Its cheap to get in, although not that big. There were some interesting reptiles as well as fish to see, and it's unusual being underground. The lady on the desk was very helpful, and told us about the tunnels, and the refurbishments - some of the labels and exhibits are being... More

Needs some tlc As this attraction is looking a little tired and some of the fish had the wrong descriptions on their respective aquariums

this attraction is undergoing renovation when visited and so difficult to appraise. Has lots of interesting fish, reptiles and spiders etc including a large open tank with big fish in. Worth a visit to see whats in the seas around the coast.

We had intended to visit the aquarium BUT seeing all the bad reviews on there about this place we didn't bother. The information was very poor and you could not get to find out a price for the visit. It a real shame that it let a lot of people down. We have been to some excellent aquariums around the... More

Unlike most other aquariums, this is small, not well maintained, and poorly labelled with many empty tanks. It is dark and hard to read the signage. You enter through a fish store! Because of its location in old German tunnels underground, it is dank and wet. Go if you love aquariums but don't expect too much.

Lighting poor, information on fish / reptiles incomplete. The majority of the tanks have dirty glass. Basically a complete waste of money, do not bother to visit unless you are happy being conned. A local garden centre that sells fish would have a better & more informative display.

Although we were advised at reception that they were "doing some adjustments" at that time, we were not prepared for the general disarray that we found. Many tanks of fish were unlabelled or mislabelled, the floor was uneven (which is dodgy in the dim light). There was just a feeling that the whole place was unkempt. The fish themselves were...

My partner and I visited the aquarium today and were quite disappointed. Whilst there was a good selection of fish to look at, the information provided about each exhibit was poor. Descriptions of the fish were either incorrect, illegible due to the display panels not being lit, or absent all together. It would not take much effort to prepare and... More
