Go when it is warm as the tunnel is a bit damp. The fish are fascinating, with wonderful colours. Worth taking visitors to see

I have visited here from time to time with the grandchildren and they love seeing the different sea creatures which made them want an aquarium with some fish. The Aquarium has a good selection of fish to buy and are always happy to offer advice.

This really isn't worth your money!! Theres hardly anything in there and it smells absolutely awful! You are better of seeing fish in a general shop.

One wishes there was an extra half a star to give this one. There is lots to see and what is there is well worth seeing but it lacks anything to really capture the imagination. One has seen the same types of things done better elsewhere. It is the sort of place one is glad to have on a wet... More

The aquarium is well situated in a granite cliff South of town, with parking directly outside. We went here as a small family group and found it dreary and somewhat sparse. It may appeal to those with younger children. It has a shop attached, and, although entry isn't terribly expensive, there are attractions which present better value for money. There... More

A very small aquarium, but well presented. Not on the same scale as Plymouth or Bristol, which both offer "themed" displays, this one concentrates more on species, which was much more to our liking.

Not expensive and a lot to look at. It could obviously be improved but, for the money, it wasn't bad.
