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

They are missing a trick! Today was wet so we thought we would do the indoor things! We were in an out in 30 mins and that was dragging it out! Many of the tanks were dirty with missing information and fish that didn't look to healthy. The reptiles didn't have much space and the spiders seemed to be missing!... More

Not the best of Guernsey in this rather stale aquarium. A throwback to the 60's and not much to recommend it to visitors

They were changing a lot of tanks around so did not know names of some species, some of the tanks were very dirty and they did not tell you any of this until after payment had been taken therefore not giving you the option to change your mind. They say they are getting ready for the summer season but what... More

Visited this recently. Was explained to me that an amount of renovation was being undertaken in preparation for the summer season. I don't mind this. However, I felt the actual aquarium was really like a glorified fish shop. The information signs above the tanks need reprinting, or the lights fixing as they were difficult to read. Some of the signs... More

Ive spend 20 years driving past the Aquarium I've always wanted to go in but for some reason I've never had time, so when i had two weeks off with my 4 year old son i thought perfect timing and headed on down. What a let down, empty tanks, dirty water, a distinct lack of fish. To call it an... More

Decided to visit this place following a recommendation from the lady at the bus kiosk . There was a wealth of history around the German/Guernsey connection which was great . The staff were friendly and at £6 it was was worth every penny .

the location was good once you found it (poor signposting). The exhibits were good but perhaps the tickets were a bit overpriced.

very interesting, although they were trying to get ready for the summer season with a new tank being built and a lot of placards telling you the names of the fishes were either missing or in the wrong place. no toilet facilities there, but some a short distance down the road

This is a very small aquarium, with quite a few empty exhibits and a lot of missing labels. Still, it was worth seeing, because it is in tunnels originally dug in the 1860s to supply the fort above it and then greatly expanded by the Nazis. You can also head up the stairs outside to visit the fort on top.
